The power of herbs


Herbs have been with us since we first walked this Earth. We have infused them into tinctures and teas since cave dwelling times. The knowledge of herbs is an ancient and mystical intelligence and one that has never left us.


In today’s world, it is easy to become cynical and to put to one side such ancient practices. However, in doing this, we stop listening to our higher selves and we avoid an ancient knowledge so powerful and healing that we must be crazy!

Mama Tea was founded by a mother looking to use that knowledge to heal herself and others, simply by using the healing powers of herbs. Mama Tea is the only tea company to use Mother Wort for example. Mother Wort is an ancient herb used to aid women’s menstruation and uterus contractions. It is very effective and yet we are the only company still to use such an ancient herb.


Another powerful use of herbs is through the healing power of a recipe or a blend of many herbs to reach an overall healing effect. In ancient times, we would have called this a spell!

Mama Tea’s New Mama Breastfeeding Tea is a perfect example of that. In this tea, we have blended three galactagogues – nettle leaf,  fennel and fenugreek, all there to promote the production and flow of breast milk. We have also included lemon balm for post-natal depression and red clover to ease the effects of mastitis.

The overall effect of this recipe is to stimulate breastfeeding for the new breastfeeding mum as well as easing some of the less savoury side effects.

We need to embrace our ancient heritage and use what nature gave us!


The best Breastfeeding Tea?

New Mama Breastfeeding Tea

Why is New Mama the best breastfeeding tea on the market? It is not just because of it’s amazing taste and flavour…there are lots of reasons. We asked Anna Louise Simpson, Founder and Mama of Mama Tea why New Mama was so good:


Interviewer: Lots of new mums swear by your New Mama breastfeeding tea. Why is that?

Anna-Louise: Well, we use three galactagogues for a start! Galactagogues help the body to produce and express breastmilk. We use nettle-leaf, fennel and fenugreek in New Mama so there is a very high chance that this tea will help to get new mums to breastfeed.

Interviewer: What other herbs are included in this breastfeeding tea?

Anna-Louise: We have also included red clover for mastitis and lemon balm for post-natal depression.

Interviewer: How important do you think herbs are for new mums and pregnant mums?

New Mama Breastfeeding Tea

Anna-Louise: I think herbs are one of the most important ways in which we can live a truly holistic life. Nature put them there for a reason and humans respond so well to them, that we would be crazy not to use them. All of our Mama Teas are 100% caffeine-free so all are safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

“Tea despatched very quickly. Tea has great flavour and i did notice a bit more breast milk being produced”.

“A lovely flavoursome tea! highly recommended. Brilliant friendly service”.

Tea and breastfeeding – why our tea is not only safe to drink but is the best!


When Anna Louise started Mama Tea , she was breastfeeding her second child. When she first started breastfeeding, she really struggled. Getting the baby to latch on and feed properly was tough. When the baby wasn’t feeding properly, it would cry a lot and in turn, this put huge amounts of pressure on this new mum. When you are at that vital stage, it is important to realise you are not alone. Lots of women struggle initially with breastfeeding. It is good to have a network of friends and support around you.

Breastfeeding Tea – The Story of New Mama Breastfeeding Herbal Tea

The Story of New Mama – Breastfeeding Tea

Breastfeeding Herbal Tea - New Mama

The Mama of Mama Tea, Anna Simpson, started Mama Tea whilst she was breastfeeding her second baby. Breastfeeding is one of the subjects that we feel is completely up to each individual woman to decide but there is no doubt that it is beneficial for both mama and baby.

Anna developed the delicious New Mama breastfeeding natural herbal tea to help women with their breast milk supply. So, what is the story of New Mama Breastfeeding herbal tea

The Start of the Story- Ingredients

Anna made sure there were some fantastic herbs in New Mama to help women to breastfeed their babies. She blended three “galatagogues” into the tea.

We have Nettle, Fennel and Fenugreek, all of which prompt the body to create breast milk and increase supply of breast milk.

Nettle Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Nettle Leaf – Urtica Dioca

Familiar to most of us as something that stings us when we’re out in the countryside, nettle leaves are also have lots of uses in herbal medicine. Nettle leaf is a powerful “galactagogue” that helps to produce breast milk and breast milk production,

History of Nettle

Stinging nettles were once used in a rather bizarre treatment known as urtication which involved beating paralysed limbs with stinging nettles in an attempt to stimulate sensations. The same remedy was also recommended for rheumatic pains while the Romans reputedly planted the small annual continental nettle (U. pilulifera) along British roads because they believed the country was so cold they would need to beat their bodies with nettles to keep warm. Nettles sting because the hairs on their stems and leaves contain histamine which is a potent skin irritant.

Fennel Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Fennel Seeds – Foeniculum Officinalis

Fennel symbolises longevity, courage and strength, the seeds are a rich source of minerals and nutrients. This herb is also a fantastic “galactagogue” that helps to create breast milk production and encourage breast milk production.


The Greeks called fennel “Marathron” which is derived from the herb meaning “to grow thin” and it seems to have been used as an early slimming aid. The Roman physician Galen classified it as hot and dry.

Fenugreek Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Fenugreek Seeds – Trigonella Foenum-Graecum

Fenugreek is familiar from Indian and Middle Eastern cookery and the herb gives a spicy flavour to curries, pickles and garnishes.


The herb rather than seeds, known as hilba, is used in tea in modern Egypt as a remedy for spasmodic abdominal pain – due to both digestive upsets and menstruation. In Ayurveda the plant (known as methi) is regarded as a good remedy in convalescence and debility helping to stimulate liver function and ease indigestion. The Chinese also regard fenugreek (Hu Lu Ba) as a kidney remedy – to warm the kidneys, dispel cold and relieve pain.

Anna was also conscious that many women suffer from mastitis during breastfeeding so she also blended red clover into the New Mama tea as this is proven to be an effective remedy for mastitis.

Anna also wanted to help women suffering with the baby blues so she also blended lemon balm in the New Mama tea to help mamas.

The Middle of the Story – Reviews

Reviews of New Mama breastfeeding herbal tea

The story of our breastfeeding tea would not be complete without looking at what some of our customers have said about New Mama tea. A customer once said to Anna – “This New Mama breastfeeding tea is feeding my baby” – it is comments like that, that make the Mama tearful and make Mama Tea the brand it is.

I was a bit dubious about this one as I’m not a fennel fan, but once I tasted it, wow … there is a real liquorice flavour that is delightful and leaves your mouth feeling alive and refreshed.

When I was breastfeeding my daughter I got to the point where I felt I wanted to naturally increase my milk supply and took Fenugreek supplements (which I felt really helped with my supply), this tea has the added advantage that it contains fennel, fenugreek and nettle, which are all galactagogues – herbs which help to promote milk production and flow.

I’m a little bit addicted to this herbal tea as I’m a big liquorice fan and will also be giving fennel another go!

New Mama:A lovely fennel, liquorice and lemon balm blend. A delicious breastfeeding tea that helps increase the milk supply.

Tried new mama for the 1st time at the secc! It was so good I had to buy some!! Will definitely be popping along to my nearest Tesco to get some more!!! A lovely aftertaste unlike most others!! As a breastfeeding mum it’s great to know this is beneficial for me & baby!!

I bought the New Mama tea and was a little scared when I opened the box because the smell was so strong! I shouldn’t have been as it was DELICIOUS!! I would recommend this product to anyone and have bought some for friends baby shower gifts too. Great customer services too by the way. Xxxx 

We have many more and will share them all on our website….if New Mama breastfeeding tea has meant something to you, please let us know
