Wildflower Botanicals Storybook Selection Pack

Standard

Who would like to be sent a Storybook Selection Pack from Wildflower Botanicals as part of our Vegan & Eco-Friendly Giveaway?

Organic Tea

“Wildflower Botanicals is a boutique herbal business specialising in organic, fairtrade, and earth-friendly products.”

Wildflower Botanicals stocks a huge range of amazing teas down in Kaikoura. Even if you are not a huge tea drinker, I am sure that you will find something you might like. The blends are organic, and you can choose to drink them hot or cold whether you feel like a black tea, green tea, white tea, red tea, oolong, pu-erh, botanical, elemental chai, herbal, storybook, pregnancy, or seasonal blend. I can definitely say that I have been to the website many times to order, but simply could not narrow down what I wanted. They all sound so yummy.

As part of our giveaway, Meg has kindly offered a storybook selection pack to one of our readers. I love the idea of a tea being made for children of all ages. Yes, even you young-at-heart adults.

“Our storybook blends are made using organic botanical ingredients – fruits, flowers, leaves, seeds, bark, and roots – so they are naturally tannin and caffeine-free.” ~Wildflower Botanicals

Which blend would you choose?

I was really curious to see what Zaedyn might think of the teas. He mostly drinks water, almond milk or breastmilk, smoothies, and coconut water so I knew that this would be something quite different for him. I loved watching his facial expressions as he tried the tea and turned into a Rock Star.

If you have been following along on Facebook, we had also received a lovely order of raw vegan chocolates from David’s family. Zaedyn really does have a very good memory and knew that it would not be a complete tea party without some chocolate. We love lovingearth products which you can purchase from Wildflower Botanicals as well. They are so yummy and well worth it. I love dark chocolate, and I have always enjoyed the combination of chocolate and mint. I was a bit hesitant about the orange & gubinge, but I have to say that I really like it. It isn’t a flavour that I would choose, but I am so glad that I have now. Apparently it is quite hard to keep stocked!

I cannot tell you which blend I like the best. I thought that it would be great to try each and see what we thought, but I can honestly say that they are all amazing. I love the different flavour combinations of each. It really is a lot of fun drinking a tea and thinking about an enchanted garden, Snow White, sweet dreams, rock star, Red Riding Hood, Gingerbread cottage, and Little Boy Blue. Many children seem to love tea parties, and this is an awesome way to have some fun and use your imagination alongside them as well as on your own. I know that I will be drinking them even when Zaedyn isn’t!

Lastly, just wanted to let you know about the Fe Blend (pregnancy) we ordered to help increase my iron storage and absorption of iron. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, just make sure to mention so that certain herbs can be left out. 1 tsp of Fe Blend per cup four times a day should be effective. As all the other teas, it is lovely. If you are interested in trying it out, enter the code AROHANUI at checkout for a 15% discount.

Vegan & Eco-Friendly Giveaway

Standard

Wow! I am so excited about such a HUGE response from some awesome vegan and eco-friendly New Zealand businesses. I hope that all of you are supporting them already, but since some of them might be new to you, this is a great time to check out their websites and Facebook pages. They have all been extremely generous in offering some amazing products which you will have a chance to win!

Rather than do a bunch of separate giveaways, I thought it might be fun to combine everything together and run one big giveaway through Rafflecopter on my Facebook page in hopes to gain even more awareness. Please take the time to share the photo or giveaway links with friends as there are lots of opportunities to win. All of these companies are making a huge effort whether their focus is on helping to protect our environment or providing cruelty-free alternatives, and I think that we can all help make an impact by supporting these companies as well.

Below you will find the details, and throughout the giveaway I will write some individual posts to give you more insight and our personal thoughts about each. However, it will just give you more reasons to be excited as we love all of these businesses and have had such positive experiences 🙂
