It’s that time again, back to school! For our family, that means picking up the pace! My son will be starting 1st grade this year, which is a big milestone for him. He’s excited to see his old friends, but a little scared of what kind of teacher he’ll receive this school year.
For my husband and I, we both work for local school districts, so that means being caffeinated and energized for the kids that depend on us!
From the tired mama to the overworked teacher, I got you! These are my recommendations of the best coffee and tea options that will help you make it through another school year.
Secret Squirrel Cold Brew Coffee is very delish! Secret Squirrel easily rivals the flavor of expensive coffee house drinks. It’s also a much better value! Every blend is non-GMO and made from organic ingredients. Grab a bottle and throw it in your mini-fridge or insulated lunch cooler. These are a great pick-me-up in the middle of the day or a good way to get yourself mentally prepared to begin the day!
Here’s a list of their yummy blends:
Dark Chocolate Mocha – This is my husband’s favorite blend. He said that it reminded him of a dark chocolate brownie.
Black Coffee – This has all the classic cold brew flavor that I love. Simple, smooth black coffee chilled to perfection.
Caffe Latte – Back to basics – cream and coffee. This is a great way to start the day.
Vietnamese Coffee – Delicious! This blend satisfied my sweet tooth! So creamy, sweet, and fulfilling.
Chicory Coffee – This was the first flavor I tried and I was instantly hooked. Normally, I’m not a fan of chicory coffee, but the smoothness of this blend with a hint of sweetness was really good!
You can’t go wrong with the all-natural ingredients and convenient size. My husband and I have really enjoyed the quality and taste of Secret Squirrel Cold Brew Coffee.
When I think back to school, I immediately think about fall. I’m such a sucker for a beautiful autumn morning, with a slight chill in the air. Mornings like that always make me want to start the day with a delicious cup of Community Coffee Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Pie Blend.
This coffee perfectly captures the essence of fall! It blends a touch of pecan pie sweetness with a hint of pumpkin spice. I love to cozy up with a warm cup of Community Coffee Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Pie, wrap myself in a fleece blanket, and read a great book!
I’ve really been enjoying Community Coffee Private Reserve Signature Espresso. Instead of drinking this in the morning, I’ve been enjoying it as a treat in the afternoon. I love this dark-roasted blend; it is very full-bodied and rich with a hint of sweetness. I recommend adding a little frothed milk for the full espresso experience, it is so good!
Tea has been a life saver for me during the school year. From a sore throat to maintaining overall wellness, tea is always something I try to keep well stocked in our cabinets.
Wendigo Tea Company offers some very unique blends. The company was started by Foxy Shazam band member, Sky White. He desired to create some of the world’s best tea blends and pursued his passion. All of the blends are created to be purposeful and delicious.
Siren Throat Health Herbal Tea is a blend for anyone who depends daily on their voices – from singers to parents. This blend is organic and made from Ginger Root, Marshmallow Root, Licorice Root, Slippery Elm Bark, Rosehips, and Hibiscus Flowers. This is a powerful medley of herbs designed to aid with respiratory health and throat health. (However, please do not drink this tea if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant.) This is an essential to keep handy during cold and flu season!
My husband and I are big fans of chai tea. We’ve recently been blown away by Wendigo’s Firebird Chai. This full-powered chai is made from Indian Estate black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, black pepper & all spice. I really love that this blend requires no added sweeteners.
The complexity and high quality of the ingredients allows for a full flavor experience. Until Firebird Chai, I’ve always had to add almond milk and stevia to chai. This blend is so satisfying after a long day, I can instantly feel my body starting to relax with each sip.
Nessy Jasmine Tea is pure comfort in a cup! The jasmine buds are rolled into small “pearls” that unwind when they make contact with hot water. The smell of this tea is so lovely! I highly recommend enjoying a warm bubble bath while sipping this blend.
The EZ Brew Coffee and Tea Maker from Wendigo Tea Company is an easy way to brew loose leaf tea. The brewer is BPA-free and makes 16oz of your favorite tea. Steep the leaves inside and when it’s ready, set it on top of your cup. The EZ Brew will perfectly strain the tea without getting any leaves into your tea. I love that this brewer is very uncomplicated.
Some mornings there is zero time to wait for my coffee maker. If we’re rushing to be on time for my son’s swim class, I need something I can fill in my travel mug and go. Dunkin’ Donuts recently came out with a time-saving option for busy days, Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew Coffee Packs. This is an iced coffee you can easily brew at home!
The night before, I fill my iced tea pitcher with cold filtered water and add the coffee pack. I put it into the fridge and let it steep overnight, and in the morning it’s ready to drink! Very easy to prepare and the pitchers lasts several days for my husband and I.
I hope I’ve helped make your mornings a little easier. These coffee and tea options have made a big difference in our household. I feel like this fall, we’ll be ready for anything!
