So what types of tea does Mama Tea have to offer and what is in them? Read on for details;
Ready Mama (Only to be used after 38 weeks of pregnancy)
About this tea
Traditional raspberry leaf and motherwort are blended with fruity hibiscus and rosehip to provide a powerful, fruity blend to prepare you for the day ahead. Great for anyone who likes fruity teas and perfect for pregnant women (after 38 weeks). Raspberry leaf and motherwort are both herbs that stimulate the uterus and help to cause contractions. The main point to make about this tea is that it tastes really lovely. Need we say more? Oh yes... it looks gorgeous as well!
The fresh, fruitiness of hibiscus blended with rosehip kicks hard to let you know it is there. Then mighty raspberry leaf sweeps a strong wave of flavour over the palate, leaving you with a glimpse of bright pink rose petals.
New Mama (Not to be used during Pregnancy)
About this tea
This gorgeous blend celebrates all things new. We have used liquorice root to sweeten up this lovely tea, so perfect for those of you who have a sweet tooth and normally find herbal teas a bit bitter. This tea is flowing with other goodies such as fennel and fenugreek seeds, lemon balm, red clover and nettle leaf. Perfect to enjoy if you like fennel teas, sweet things or are a new mother (get someone else to make it for you though – you deserve it!) All mums-to-be will have to wait for this one though, as we don’t recommend this one during pregnancy. Fennel, fenugreek and nettle are all galactagogues, which are herbs which help to promote milk production and flow. And if you like liquorice, you will love the taste of this tea!
Sweet liquorice instantly provides blessed relief, like a nap in the afternoon. This gives way to fennel and fenugreek, which swell to provide a warm, milky taste that leaves the palate full and satisfied.
The tea which I enjoyed the most had to be Cool Mama. It is brilliantly refreshing and full of taste. The smell was amazing too and I have to admit I did have a good sniff every time I took a drink! The only tea which I wasn't too keen on was the New Mama tea. My sense of smell just couldn't take the fennel. I could drink the tea fine as it tasted lovely but the smell of the fennel put me off which is a shame. I guess I'm just not cut out to love fennel!
You can purchase your very own Mama Tea in boxes of 20 or as loose-leaf tea. The boxes of 20 tea bags Retail for £2.95 which is very reasonable for herbal teas plus you can purchase them direct from the Mama Tea online shop.
Overall I would highly recommend these teas to all expecting mother and new mothers. Great care has been taken to establish could quality tasty tea and if you're a tea-a-holic like me then these are definitely for you. The New Mama tea would also make an excellent gift for a new breastfeeding mother. Pricing is great and very reasonable what more can I say? Just go and buy the stuff, you'll thank me for it later!
