melanie’s story

I started using Morning Mama Tea when I was 6 weeks pregnant. I was sceptical about the tea helping,but the nausea and sickness was unbearable. I can honestly say that the has helped me cope with the nausea and helped me to manage working whilst not feeling my best. This is my third pregnancy and the nausea has stayed with me until I was 23 weeks. I found brewing the tea in a thermos cup great as I could sip the tea throughout the day and the tea stayed hot.

Mama Tea – why do we know a thing or two about herbal tea?


Why do we know so much about herbal tea at Mama Tea, you may ask? Is it because the Mama decided that no-one was blending herbal teas to taste good and came up with some lovely teas as a trial…?

Inner Balance Herbal Tea | Mama Tea Well Being Herbal Teas

Nope.

Is it because we used a Master Tea Blender to help get those lovely teas just right?

Reiki Energy | Herbal Tea | Mama Tea Well Being Tea

Nope.

Is it because we use only the best herbal suppliers in the world?

Goji Goddess | Herbal Tea | Mama Tea Well Being Tea

Nope.

Is it because we know one of the top medical herbalists in the UK and have sought her advice for many of our blends?

Well Being Tea Gift | Mama Tea

No…it is because of all of these reasons!!! We care about our teas and we care about our customers. Put them together and you get Mama Tea!

GOJI BERRIES

Goji berries have been used since ancient times as a method of increasing feelings of wellbeing.

Reason for every goddess to fill her cup with these little black jewels.

STRAWBERRIES

Scientists at the University of Warwick have been studying the beneficial effects of strawberries on our cardiovascular health, particularly around how they prevent the development of heart disease and diabetes.

Professor Paul Thornalley from Warwick Medical School heads the team that discovered extracts from strawberries positively activate a protein in our bodies called ‘Nrf2′ which is shown to increase antioxidant and other protective activities. This protein works to decrease blood lipids and cholesterol, the very things which can lead to cardiovascular problems.

Professor Thornalley explained: “We’ve discovered the science behind how strawberries work to increase our in-built defences to keep cells, organs and blood vessels healthy and which can reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular problems such as heart disease and diabetes.

WOW. Simply WOW!!

So, this beautiful goddess is off to make herself a cuppa and to get healthy at the same time!

Why drink “pregnancy herbal tea”?


Pregnancy and Herbal Tea

Mama Tea Pregnancy Tea

Why drink a special “pregnancy tea” I hear you say. There are thousands of herbal teas out there, so why a special one for pregnancy?

Well, there are some herbs that are not ideal during pregnancy and some that should only be taken at certain times. However, caffeine is probably more harmful than any of the herbal teas that you could buy in your supermarket, so please do not be alarmed. You would also have to drink a LOT of unsuitable herbal tea for it to have a huge effect. Saying that, there are some things to be aware of.

Spearmint Tea and Pregnancy

cool mama herbal tea | Mama Tea Pregnancy Tea

Spearmint tea is better during pregnancy than peppermint tea. Although both are from the same family of herbs, they are quite different in terms of their chemical make-up. Peppermint slightly irritates the uterus lining, whereas spearmint is completely harmless. Spearmint tea like Mama Tea’s Cool Mama tea also help relieve pregnancy heartburn as we have blended it with chamomile and marshmallow leaf, so go for spearmint instead. BUY HERE

Raspberry Leaf and Pregnancy

Mama Tea Pregnancy Tea

Raspberry leaf, hibiscus, motherwort and rosehip all stimulate the uterus, which is not recommended before week 38 of pregnancy, so avoid all of these types of teas at the start of pregnancy. Saying that, towards the end of pregnancy, around week 38 onwards, these herbs are actually extremely beneficial for a pregnant woman. All of these herbs will “tone” the uterus and help the body prepare for birth. Increase the amount you are drinking towards week 40 and these herbal teas will actually stimulate the uterus so much that they can help you go into labour naturally and also increase the intensity of your contractions.

ready mama herbal tea | Mama Tea Pregnancy Tea

There are lots of raspberry leaf teas on the market but very few combine all four of these powerful uterine stimulants. Mama Tea has solved this with their birth preparation tea, Ready Mama as this tea combines all four of these herbs. Mama Tea has also included some lovely rose petals to make this tea smell and taste lovely with the added benefit that rose petals calm the central nervous system. BUY HERE

Rooibos and Pregnancy

Rooibos or redbush tea is a herb that has been used in South Africa by pregnant women for a long time. It is a powerful antioxidant, more than green tea! And it is completely safe to use in pregnancy, so ditch the caffeinated teas and coffees and try a rooibos tea instead.

Rooibos herbal tea | Well being tea | mama tea

At Mama Tea, we wanted our rooibos tea, Glowing Mama, to have some little pregnancy “extras”, so we also added dandelion and elderflower which both help with fluid retention and also some echinacea, nature’s natural antibiotic, for an all-round pregnancy tea! BUY HERE

Drink Mama Tea during your pregnancy for the right herbs at the right time and your peace of mind.
