another vote for red bush! also clipper decaf coffee says it doesnt use any chemicals. not bad either. horlicks has hydrogenated veg oil (horror!) but ovaltine is fab! the make with milk one though because the instant one is full of sweetners.
What would be the minimum tea/coffee you could manage on?
I'm thinking that perhaps if you had, eg, coffee at breakfast, then spatone in orange juice mid morning, you could still have your coffee but keep your iron levels up.
I like peppermint tea and green tea but I know that a lot of people think that sort of thing taste like grass clippings . I do agree about the fruit teas though - I am yet to find one that isn't a total disappointment.
I started drinking 'No Caff' - you can buy it at a good health store. It is a coffee substitute that is made of chicory, figs & barley. It contains no caffeine and is organic, and actually tastes alot like coffee.
I really enjoy it and my DH does to (He was a real coffee-addict!)
But there again, I like Rooibos (Or as you are calling it - Red Bush) tea, so I guess it depends on personal preference
