I'm drinking yorkshire decaf, it's the only decaf I've tried that tastes like proper builders tea, the others are a bit weak and flowery for me. I'll drink a normal caffeinated cup of tea if out or at someone's house. I'm not a fan of fruity or herbal teas.
Yorkshire decaf for me too, and some 'proper tea' once a day. Drank rooibos last time but can't stomach it this time for some reason. DH starts the day with an espresso and it's killing me not being able to join him!
I'm 17 weeks and have only just managed to stomach tea again. I quite like twinings decaf but am frankly allowing myself the odd cup of "normal tea" now and then as I'm off coffee completely. Quite like berry based fruit teas, again twinings.
I have my normal tetley tea 4 or 5 times a day. But then also enjoy runny eggs medium steaks etc if we listened to all the recommendations out there while preggers we would be complete gibbering wrecks!!!
I couldn't stomach normal tea with morning sickness in the first trimester. I switched to decaf but only had a couple a day, compared to the pre-pregnancy 4-5 a day! Even now (32 weeks) tea doesn't taste particularly good. I mostly have decaf with maybe one caffeinated cup a day.
Don't forget that green tea has caffiene in it if you're drinking it!
Great thread thanks Ladies. I had no idea some teas were off limits (other than caffeine which I know should be limited).
I'm off tea for lent anyway which has coincided with my first trimester (now 7 weeks) but I normally drink around 2-3 cups black tea and 1-2 cups green tea most days. now I know to restrict them. Didn't know about green tea and folic acid, but have been taking FA every day since November so hope it will be ok.
I drank redbush tea (I bought a vanilla one that I drank twice before it turning my stomach massively) and tetley decaf. I would happily drink normal tea if not in my own home. I drink my tea very weak so I didn't feel it was a massive issue.
I also used to drink fresh ginger root and honey tea. It was amazing in the early sickness days.
