Raspberry leaf tea has traditionally been used to help ease your baby's entrance into the world. It has been linked to shorter and more straightforward births in research. As well as potentially helping recovery too.It's believed to help due to the fragarine that is found in raspberry leaves and the positive effect it has on uterine strength.
We've blended red raspberry leaves with whole peppermint to create a sweet, refreshing and comforting cuppa. It can not only help prepare for labour but also help aid digestion.
This tea is designed to be drunk from the third trimester. We recommend drinking 1 cup per day from 32 - 33 weeks, and providing you don't have braxton hicks as a result, increase this to 2 cups per day from 33 - 34 weeks. Then drink up to 3 cups a day from 34 weeks until your baby arrives.
About Our Ingredients
Refreshingly minty and herbaceous.
Raspberry leaf does not taste like raspberries! It has a flavour akin to green tea, with subtle vegetal notes and a slight bitterness.
Whole leaf peppermint is sweeter and with a more intense mint flavour compared to a traditional tea bag.
In combination, they have a sweet and herby taste, with a thick mouthfeel.
We don’t recommend adding milk or sugar, but follow your cravings and personal taste!
Will Raspberry leaf make my baby come early?
The short answer is no. There's no real evidence to show that drinking raspberry leaf when you're overdue will kick things off. Instead, the evidence shows that it can lead to a shorter second stage and fewer interventions when you're delivering your baby. This is why we recommend drinking it as part of your birth preparation from 32 weeks.
When should I start drinking this tea?
You can start drinking raspberry leaf tea at 32 weeks. We recommend having 1 cup a day from 32 weeks, 2 cups from 33 weeks, and a maximum of 3 cups from 33 weeks until your baby arrives.
How much Raspberry Leaf is in this tea?
It is 40% raspberry leaf and 60% peppermint. This is to give a natural sweetness to balance the flavour, and the peppermint can also help heartburn, which is a major issue for many women at the end of pregnancy. Also, the raspberry leaf we use is whole leaf, so you can get more of it's benefits compared to dust, which is found in a normal tea bag, this can lose its goodness to the air quickly after production.
Are there any occasions when you should not drink Raspberry Leaf Tea?
If you're pregnant, there are a few occasions not to drink raspberry leaf. We recommend talking to your midwife or healthcare provider for specific guidance if you have any concerns.
How to brew?
Each of our packs has simple instructions on it, but essentially you should use 1 tea bag per person, and freshly boiled water for all except Newborn Wonder. This tea works best with 80 degree water (let your kettle sit for 5 minutes with the lid open after boiling). Brew for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like it.
