Tea for me:)

Now this may upset some readers, but I don’t like coffee, not even the smell.  In fact, when my hubby makes a pot, I open the window in the kitchen to help dissipate the smell. However,  I love tea. Chamomile, Green, Black,  Oolong and White teas. When I found out I was pregnant I knew I had to limit my caffeine intake. How could I have my cake and eat it too?, research of course!

I found an organic Chamomille that branded itself as a pregnancy tea.  Since I was sick throughout my entire  pregnancy, I didn’t keep much down, so my daily cup of Chamomile tea was a treat.  Once Little Pumpkin Doodle was born, I stopped drinking the pregnancy brand and resumed my normal tea consumption. While searching for some Earl Grey, I had read an article from Royal Majestea, and quickly realized that I should have been more careful about selecting tea that had pregnancy stamped on the label. Surprisingly, a common herbal tea to avoid during pregnancy is Chamomile. It does help with sleeplessness and inflammation, but it has been reported to have adverse effects on the uterus.  I contacted Royal Majestea, and the owner quickly called me back with facts about tea I never knew. For example, have you ever had a cup of Orange Pekoe (medium grade black tea) and wondered why you didn’t taste orange? Well, it’s because Orange Pekoe describes the grade and size of the tea leaves.

I can’t wait until Little Pumpkin Doodle is old enough to go enjoy a formal afternoon tea, with the funny hats and her pinky up in the air.  For now, LPD and I will play tea party at home and I’ll drink my Early Grey from Royal MajesteaSip. Relax. Repeat.

Hi There-I just started a new Facebook page & Facebook needs me to have 25 fans before I can get a user name for my page.  If you like this article, I’d really appreciate you being one of the first 25 people to like my page.  It would really help me and it only takes a few seconds.  Here’s the link http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mommys-Organics/164854546950417.

    I, like your husband love to have my morning coffee. But after being diagnosed with Lupus(an autoimmune disorder which causes inflammation in the body) I too needed to limit my caffeine intake. I knew there were many good reasons to drink green tea but I had know idea chamomille had anti-inflammatory properties. Thanks for the tip. I will be adding chamomille tea to my herbal fight against lupus.
