Take Time for Ten-Minute Mommy Timeout with Twinings



Can we be honest for a minute? The other day I put MYSELF down for a nap. And that’s when it struck me. I’ve been doing this parenting thing wrong. From that day forward, when my kids felt a bit overwhelming or work stressed me out, I took a ten-minute timeout with a steamy cup of Twinings of London tea in one of my favorite, delicious flavors.

Take a Mommy Time Out

Let’s face it; there’s nothing sweeter on a stressful and cold day than a soothing cup of herbal tea. But besides being a tasty and stress-relieving time out for mom, it is also the perfect caffeine-free pick-me-up. I love herbal tea because it’s a guilt-free drink I can enjoy any time of the day.



Let me tell you why I love these Twinnings flavors – and I would love to hear what your favorites are too!

Berry Fusion Twinings Herbal Tea for a Sweeter Treat

I love this berry fusion tea. It’s the perfect pick me up when I’m craving a sweet treat I won’t regret later. This blend includes rosehips (Vitamin C!), hibiscus, orange and blackberry leaves, apple pieces, licorice root and other natural fruit flavors. I usually like to add honey to my tea, but this flavor is perfect as is for my tastes.

Lemon Delight Twinings Herbal Tea for an Afternoon Pick-Me-Up!

This herbal blend includes everything awesomely lemony in one delicious blend. It’s perfect for a pick-me-up on a dreary afternoon or long night tackling some client work. I feel like this is a “sunny” cup of tea. The blend is a lovely white hibiscus, lemongrass, lemon peel, lemon verbena, and natural lemon flavor. Add a dash of honey to this one and ENJOY!

Beat the Blues with Buttermint Twinings Herbal Tea Blend

Peppermint blend teas are something I rely on when I need a mental awakening to perk me up when I’m dreary or blue. The Buttermint blend is fantastic because it mixes the fresh, uplifting flavor of peppermint with a natural vanilla flavor. Vanilla is one of my favorite soothing and calming options. Together it’s a perfect balance.

Next time you need a moment, make it a Twining’s cup of tea moment and see how brilliant this guilt-free self-care can honestly be. Do you have a favorite cup of tea or a favorite way to take time for yourself to de-stress?

I have tried the Berry Fusion before when I was at my friend’s house and I loved it! She’s my best friend so I just went into her kitchen, opened the cupboard and grabbed her box and put it in my bag. She just shook her head. Will definitely buy it again when I run out!

I must try this Buttermint, sounds like the best combo since Butterbeer! Also is it just me or does tea look a million times better next to a flaky pastry!!

I LOVEEEEEE tea! I recently made a trip to the UK and discovered Fortnum and Mason’s Smoky Earl Grey tea. There’s no turning back to low-quality tea bags for me now!

I never heard of Twinings I’m have to try it out. Also, my favorite tea brand is Yogi just because there are quotes in them! lol

I love tea and I like the idea of taking time for a ten-minute Mommy timeout! I would do this even if I myself have no kids. I do take care of my brother who has cancer and have been busy running back and forth to the hospital! I could use a twinnings timeout!

“There’s nothing sweeter on a stressful and cold day than a soothing cup of herbal tea!” You got that absolutely right! Such a nice way to break away from all the stresses. But I think I’d go for the Lemon Twinnings herbal tee…I always love that taste of lemon in almost all that I take.

Nothing better than being curled up on the sofa and kicking back with a tasty herbal tea.

I’m glad I’m not the only mom out there that would put myself in a timeout!! Also, Twinings is my favorite brand of tea!! I’m partial to their Irish breakfast tea and London breakfast blend. I have not had these other flavors, I’ll have to give them a try😊
