What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Tasty but no miracle remedy!
I tried this tea in my first trimester. I've always been a tea drinker, and I really like ginger teas. Although this tasted pretty good, it did not take away my morning sickness or make me feel any better at all. The smell of it now reminds me of all the vomiting and I can't bear it. This is unfortunate, because I really wanted to like it, and was desperate for a cure! If anything, a straight rooibos or vanilla rooibos was more soothing for me. Its worth a try, but don't build up your expectations :)
Love it ~ Don't sweat the nettle.
I have been enjoying this tea daily in my second and third trimesters. Don't let the concerns over nettle fool you, since the Ministry uses only "aerial parts" there's nothing to worry about - it's the root that is not recommended during pregnancy. Since I'm avoiding mint, it was tricky to find a mama tea, but this one is delicious and good for me. I also love that the Ministry doesn't use string, paper, or staples on their tea bags. Great product, great company.
Safe & tasty
My midwives have said nettle is safe. Also I'm pretty sure this company has done the research before selling a product. With our 4th little one on the way I have never had any worries drinking this tea ever. It's tasty.
This tea is very safe and I have been drinking it for years. My oldest daughter uses it faithfully to ease cramping during her cycle. She is miserable when she forgets to drink this beginning three days before, but feels great when she remembers.
This tea tastes fine--just like all Republic of Tea teas. However, it contains stinging nettle. Stinging nettle should be avoided during pregnancy. Everything else in this tea is absolutely perfect for a pregnant woman. Why put nettle in it!?
