Plum Passion is the best non caffienated tea ever!  It’s from Harney and Sons

Also hot chocolate is a good choice, if you make it with skim milk you get extra protein.

Teavana usually has on its website a suggested tea safe for pregnant women.

ETA: maybe I’m remembering incorrectly and it was information for an employee in the store.

It says “Very finely cut pieces of organic hibiscus, organic ginseng, cinnamon, rose hips, orange peel, ginger, and passion fruit.”

@mrscandyv:  I’ve never heard you can’t have cinnamon.  Is it because it can cause your blood sugar to drop?  If that’s the reason then you need quite a bit for that to happen.  Then again, my theory on pregnancy was no drugs (besides Tylenol), no alcohol, no raw fish and pretty much everything else was good).

@mrscandyv:  I didn’t realize you were supposed to give up most tea and coffee while you were pregnant.. isn’t that a bit extreme? Is this something everyone should do? Genuinely curious. I just asked my SO and he said no it wasn’t necessary.

I second the Harney suggestion. They have some amazing teas. The Vanilla Comoro is decaf. I usually add a little sugar but I’m sure it would be nice by itself. Hot chocolate?

There are also some pregnancy teas that are allegedly safe from Amazon.  Most of these have ginger in them for MS and I can’t stand the taste of ginger personally in tea.  Some of these you might be able to find at Whole Foods: Yogi Mother to Be  Traditional Medicinals Pregnancy Tea and TM’s Organic Pregnancy Tea.

I too wish there were definite guidelines regarding tea (and kombucha, but that’s a diff topic.)  I also was reading about kind of making your tea using decaf black and adding fruit for flavoring- might be good for iced tea.

I enjoyed rooibos chai lattes while pregnant.

@canarydiamond:  yes it is pretty common. Caffeine is not great for baby. Herbal teas can have different effects so you need to be careful about which you’re ingesting. I’ve read both in the mayo clinic book as well as what to expect when you’re expecting, both of which are widely read and used as the pregnancy bibles.

My favorite warm beverage is a steamer 🙂 I’ve found this drink to be kind of a regional thing- never even heard of it back in California! Basically it’s just a cup of steamed milk with flavoring syrup in it. I usually get a sugar free white chocolate. So, you get the benefits of milk and the tastiness of a warm beverage! You can use whatever flavoring syrups they have, with or without sugar. I used to adore hot chocolate, but this is even better 🙂
