Farewell, dear tea!

I was raised on brick orange tea.

There were the 6am cups, plonked down by my Dad on the bedside table – a brash morning call, which I came to love.

My Mum made trays of afternoon tea and cake. In winter, we lit the fire and we slurped and gobbled like delighted piglets.

Tea is love. Brewed with patience. Stirred. Tea bags squeezed. A dash of milk. Aaaaaaaah.

I’m cutting out caffeine, however, ahead of our frozen embryo transfer in May. I’ve gone and over-googled again.

It’s day two off my favourite drug – I’m coping by drawing colourful tea sets!

  1. Have you ever tried rooibos, or red bush, tea? That is naturally caffeine free and the taste is not too far away from black tea.
    People often drink it as an alternative to black tea if they have been told to avoid caffeine and can’t do without a cuppa to get them through the day!


      1. No problem! There are lots of rooibos blends out there too so I’m sure you’ll be able to find one that you love. I’ve just tried an rooibos take on Earl Grey which was great!
        Ah brilliant, well I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how you get on with your tea quest!


  2. Hi, you don’t need to say goodbye to your beloved tea. Try some caffeine free alternatives. I have been discovering lots lately. I try to have 1 or 2 cups of caffeinated tea a day the rest are either fruit or herbal. I now love the variety and wish I had done it earlier, Chloe.
