tea your kids like? - Page 2

post #21 of 43
My girls drink black, green, or rooibos teas. All with a little milk and sometimes honey.

We like the rooibos in flavors of which there are many

We drink lot of tea in our house, all bulk as I dont care for tea in bags as it often has a dusty taste.

My girls each have useable tea sets along with cups and saucers. They love picking out what they will drink their morning tea out of :LOL

As I drink my rooibos now...my kid loves the rooibos chai with honey and milk (organic). This is the wonder tea, its great when she's sick - full of good anti-oxidants and it also helps insomnia and relaxes you. It's been drunk for millenia. If anyone here reads the Precious Ramotswe mysteries this is the bush tree that she's always making.

cheers

Earth Mama Angel Baby makes a Peaceful Mama tea and a Calm Baby tea, both of which my kids like.
Also, Michelle at greentaramama.com makes custom blends- she had the yummiest summer tea, and we all enjoyed it!

Most mornings I take two wide-mouth quart jars and put about 4 or 5 Tbs. of herbs in each, then boil a big kettle of water and let it all steep for a bit then strain the teas into another quart jar. We drink tea instead of water much of the time. We usually end up drinking it at room temperature but if you wanted it warm you could just heat it up later. I prefer the taste of bulk herbs also, like a pp said, but it sometimes seems like a bit of a hassle to make just one cup with bulk herbs so this system works for me.

My main herbs are raspberry, nettle, oat straw, mint, alfalfa, lemon balm ... hmm, what else. BTW, ds loves all of it .. he likes it better than water. Hibiscus has a nice sweet and fruity taste ... lemon grass, licorice is sweet and very yummy.

Honestly? I don't think it tastes like much at all .. lol .. in any case it's very mild, slightly sweet, kind of earthy flavor. It doesn't taste like what you'd think straw would taste like. I always mix it with other things with stronger flavors, it's just such a good nervine .. very relaxing.

If you just want one cup of loose tea, The Republic of Tea site has this cool tea ball with a handle. My dh and I use ours all the time.
My family did not drink tea growing up, so I have no idea how to make a pot of tea. I want to learn, but I'm still looking for the perfect tea pot.

I just ordered their catalog. We can't find their writer's chai ANYWHERE around here anymore, so I was really glad to see it on their website!

We like Chamomille and Peppermint tea around here..

I used to sweeten my son's chamomille with a bit of honey but now he drinks it straight and really loves it...He will drink both ...iced during the day and he loves it warm right before bed..

DS loves Nighty night by Traditional medicinals.

Every night...hot tea, hot tea!!

Not tea, but hot drinks: my son has liked hot water with honey, sometimes with lemon added; hot apple juice and prune juice; and of course hot chocolate.

This makes the best iced tea (we don't even have to add sugar or honey).
We also like green tea, chamomile, lemon tea and anything fruity !

I haven't found a tea my ds doesn't like. Whenever he sees my cup he chants "gee gee" (can't say "t" yet ). The first time I made a smoothie he wouldn't even try it until I said, "would you like to taste mama's tea?" Then he reached for the glass. Now we call the smoothie "purple tea" (made with blueberries) and he gulps it right down.

Thanks for all of the suggestions of other teas to try. I'll be filling up my cart at Whole Foods this weekend. Fall and tea just go together!
