Wild Foods Tea Sample Review 1

**Not sure why WordPress deleted my other post**

So let me start off by telling you that Wild Food Co  is an amazing company.  The founder Colin Stuckert will email you himself if you send them any questions.  As I have food allergies, I have had to email him a few times with questions.

This all started with a free sample request, they allowed you to pick one and then they would send you one random one.  I received an email from them because they were overwhelmed by the response to their samples. So I took that opportunity to ask them if they could NOT send me anything with Chocolate in it due to my allergy.  H wrote me back to confirm my allergy and that was all I heard.  When I received my 100% free sample (didn’t even pay for shipping) I saw on the shipping slip that he had made note of my allergy and said not to cross contaminate.  How thoughtful!

They included a bunch of guides and stickers (I am a sucker for swag) and the tea I picked was the review that follows.  I will do one on the tea they picked for me as well.

organic-red-rooibos-loose-leaf-green-chai-tea-rooibos-organic-fair-trade-premium-loose-leaf-tea-loose-teaWild Tea #1: Coconut Chai Rooibos

The Coconut Chai Rooibos is a killer way to finish your meal. It not only helps you curb fatigue after your meal (those annoying “crashes”), but also helps settle your stomach and aids in digestion. The cinnamon has a insulin-curbing effect, which helps to reduce the amount of calories that are stored as fat following your meal. The blend of ginger, coconut flakes, cloves, safflower, crushed chilis and a dash of organic flavorings, provides a dose of Wild nutrition while serving it’s purpose to help digest your calories.

We love Wild Tea #1 hot and immediately after a meal.

Tea has been linked to a multitude of health benefits. In fact, the areas of the world where people live the longest (like Ikaria, Greece and Okinawa japan), locals drink tea on a daily basis.

Most people don’t know this, but you can brew the same tea multiple times and get not only differently flavor profiles but even more nutrition! We recommend brewing for only 2 minutes when you are planning on multiple brews.

What Is Rooibos Tea?

Rooibos tea is named after the South African plant it is harvested from. Rooibos is often referred to as “red” tea. It contains more antioxidants than tea from the Camellia sinensis plant (white, green, black, oolong, yellow, pu-erh) and has no caffeine. Rooibos tea is also thought to help with anxiety and allergies.

Rooibos Tea Benefits:

  • Full of antioxidants: high concentrations of aspalathin and nothofagin that prevent free radical damage.
  • Includes minerals: magnesium, calcium, manganese, zinc and iron
  • Improves circulation via a potent antioxidant Chrysoeriol.
  • Lowers blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Improves digestion and overall gut health via the high concentration of flavonoids–specifically one called quercetin.
  • Improves your skin: Rooibos tea contains phenylpyruvic acid, which improves your skin and can help reduce acne, psoriasis and eczema.

What You Get:

  • Loose Leaf Premium Rooibos Tea
  • Origin: South Africa
  • Ingredients: Rooibos, Saigon Cinnamon, Ginger-Coconut Flakes, Cloves, Safflower, Crushed Chili, Organic Flavoring

The tea is very flavorful and spicy.  My husband drank my entire first glass!

I had no idea these little guys where not creamer – I was a little disappointed at first – BUT I soon got over that when I saw how many they gave me AND once I tried them.  It is nice to be able to add extra flavoring to my coffee without having to over do it on the creamer.

Coca-Cola Life – BzzAgent

What are your sweetest moments? You know the ones we’re talking about. Big or small, they’re the moments you want to sit back and savor. Whatever they may be, Coca-Cola Life has the deliciously sweet taste to match. Made with the genuinely sweet combination of cane sugar and stevia leaf extract, Coca-Cola Life is perfect for your tireless quest to make every moment of your day just a little bit more memorable.

I signed up for this sampling before we decided to stop drinking soda – it was getting out of hand.  When my husband got sober 4 years ago he replaced the alcohol with soda – and it was really easy for me to also drink soda right along with him.  Plus at my work it is rather cheap in the soda machine, I still have to resist buying one for an after noon pick-me-up.

So – I gave the sample coke to my dad, who drinks Coke products – He liked the first taste of the new coke, but didn’t like the after taste at all.  And I am guessing that it is the stevia that he doesn’t like.  It can have a bit of an after taste even when I mix the powder into other drinks.  So this is not a Coke product that we will be buying anytime soon.

Silk® Cashewmilk – BzzAgent

It took me a very long time to be able to find this at my local Fry’s food store.  It was hidden in the very small refrigerated part of the heath food section of the store.  They had only one flavor, Original, and there were not very many in stock.  So I used my free coupon and and gave it a try.  Lets just say I am much happier with the Vanilla flavor of the almond milk.  I might like the cashew milk better had it been a flavored one.

Silk-Cashew-Milk-Unsweetened

**update**

We used the original unsweetened flavor to make some chicken Alfredo for dinner a few nights ago – and it turned out amazing.
