    Peppermint is fine but not chamomile I'm afraid. I do miss my Chamomile tea, ooh and Fennel I used to love Fennel.

    Ooh that's interesting :) Excuse my ignorance, I didn't know there was a religion that wasn't allowed caffiene, do you mind me asking what religion it is?

    You can also drink white tea and green tea (leaf tea variants) which are milder- I think the white has no caffeine, but the green might have a small amount? You would need to check for definite. If it is ok, clipper teas also do a white with mint tea which is totally addictive. You can find clipper teas in most supermarkets. They also do a white with ginger, which is still a leaf tea and a white with cinammon but these are harder to find- wholefood stores usually have them. I have not had the white with cinammon, just in case, but I think it would be allowed on SS.

    I am turning into a tea bore!

    Smartie, your username is makin me hungry, hehe!! I love Smarties, lol. I haven't craved any choc on CD though, probably because i live off just Choc mint milkshakes and choc CD bars, lol.

    I'm sorry i cant help you with your question but i think you've had your question answered by all the lovely people on here :).

    Good luck with your weightloss journey :) xx
