Tea Search Help

Hey all! I am looking for some teas, preferably low-caffeine or caffeine-free/rooibos/honeybush/fruit infusions/herbal. Im pregnant and trying to limit my caffeine consumption throughout the day, as I drink matcha every morning. I like dessert blends and my favorite flavors are- almond, pecan, hazelnut, chestnut- anything nutty, vanilla and cream, PUMPKIN!!! Banana nut, apple cinnamon… I really dislike hibiscus or tart fruit blends.

Ive searched through: DAVIDsTEA, Fava Tea, Teavana, A Quarter to Tea, Adagio, 52 Teas, The NecessiTEAs, Tea Source, Gryphon Tea Store, American Tea Room, Tea Forte, and Full Leaf Tea. But either came up disappointed or I already ordered what they have for caffeine-free blends. I know there are other companies out there that I just dont know about, so I figured i’d reach out to the Steepster Community!

Id really like some new companies to sift through or even suggestions on some good teas to try!

Thanks :)

Since you like PUMPKIN!!! (really, who doesn’t? I’m a bonified pumpkinholic too!) and are looking for caffeine-free options, I reviewed a pumpkin pie rooibos for the Pumpkinpalooza reviews I’m doing on my tea blog this month. It was a quite balanced pumpkin blend and a good option for a rooibos/honeybush base (the only ones I tried that topped it for me were black teas or yerba mates). It’s a seasonal from http://www.artoftea.com/ , but as I recall, they pulled their autumn seasonals on March 1st last year, leaving quite a few months that it is available. They have some other desserty rooibos blends as well, including apple pie, banana dulce, and lemon meringue.

Numi teas has lots of herbals. I’m really not a rooibos fan in general, but I will drink their rooibos chai every once in awhile with milk and sugar.
