Ever since I got pregnant, I’ve been avoiding caffeine. Although 2 cups of coffee a day is okay during pregnancy, I just didn’t wanna risk anything especially during the early stages of the pregnancy. (I’ve got back to some tea and decaf after 35 weeks, but only very little.) So during most of my pregnancy, I’ve been drinking fresh fruit juice or caffeine-free tea like rooibos tea. I’ve tried many different brands including Tazo from Starbucks and Tetley etc. etc… but in the end, I ended up liking PC brand tea from Superstore.
PC brand (Stands for President’s Choice) is the house brand of Canadian supermarket called Superstore. They make affordable alternative for, well, almost everything. I remember 5-10 years ago people considered PC brand being cheap and low quality, but I’ve noticed their products had really improved and some of their products are better than name brand products.
So these tea are regular price CA$2.49 for a box (20 individually wrapped tea bags). I try to buy them when they are on sale. They are actually on sale right now for CA$1.79 a box. They have many different kinds of herbal tea. The one in the photo is called Dreamland and it reminds me of Calm Tazo Tea. Of all the herbal tea I can get, my favourite is still rooibos tea. It is great hot, but it is AMAZING cold brewed. I drank rooibos tea like water during the summer. It not only tastes great, but is also great for digestive system.
If you’re looking for a caffeine-free tea, or you just like rooibos tea, definitely try the PC brand rooibos tea!
