    Definitely depends what your health concerns are - I wouldn't consider tea or coffee to be unhealthy.
    There are lots of lovely infusions that can be bought/made. If you like chai, you can make the same kinds of spice mixtures without any tea & use that - it's delicious!
    Caro is a nice cereal-based drink. Chicory root and wattleseed also make for good caffeine-free coffee replacements.

    Just re-read...you're just looking for alternatives, not suggesting they're unhealthy hey? I'd also highly recommend making your own chai if you like it

    If you're not avoiding caffeine, Madame Flavour have a really nice range. The Choc Orange Ceylon is my fave

    If you're avoiding caffeine, then a rooibos is a good option. Lovely flavour

    Not if your wish is to cut down on caffeine!

    I wasn't sure if the OP was wanting to cut out caffeine or not, she didn't say.

    T2 have some delicious stuff, just check the ingredients. Some are sweetened

    Silly question....would it say it's been sweetened or added sugar?

    T2 are not what I would call healthy 😁
    I cut out coffee and tea a few months ago I replaced it with a milk shake, which I have every morning. I don't eat breakfast so needed something to replace my morning coffee.

    I make up a liter as my kids love it too.

    1 liter of milk (I use soy)
    1-2 heaped tsp of cocao.
    1-2 tsps (depending of how sweet you like it) of rice malt
    Some times I'll add fruit as a replacement sweetener.

    You can also add nutritional powders if that's your thing.
