Tea For Two – Tea and Pregnancy

Exciting, nauseating, terrifying – pregnancy is the first big loop in the life changing roller coaster that is parenthood. Whether it’s your first or fifth child you are faced with a million decisions and no ‘hard and fast’ 100% reliable rule books. Everyone has an opinion and it can be difficult to hear your own thoughts over the hum of expectation and advice.  Finding a way to hit pause and enjoy the tiny miracle you are creating may feel like another item on the pregnancy to do list. But it can also be as simple as wrapping your hands around a cup of Madura Tea.

Celebrating you

Rituals slow life’s frenetic pace. They quieten the mind and allow us to hear our true thoughts. Daily rituals don’t have to be grand or complex; they can be as straight forward as making a cup of tea.  There is something soothing about the process of boiling water, waiting for the bubbles to cease and then pouring it over loose leaves or a tea bag and breathing in the fragrant aroma. A dash of milk, squeeze of lemon or dollop of honey and you’re ready to sip and savour. You might start each day with a cuppa, running the process on autopilot while washing last night’s dishes or making today’s lunch. Or that cuppa could be a much needed screen break or chance to stretch your legs between conference calls. When you’re drinking for two the small act of brewing a pot of tea can have a big impact on your wellbeing.  Each sip is a chance for time out, a chance to relax and nurture the other VIP in the room – you.

Tea for two

Pregnancy probably isn’t the time to start experimenting with new tastes. And with so much around you changing, there’s a lot to be said for the familiar. There’s no reason why you can’t continue drinking your favourite Madura Tea throughout your pregnancy. It’s pure, healthy and naturally low in caffeine.  If you are being extra cautious about your caffeine intake you can always practice a little DIY decaffeination. Simply steep the leaves or your tea bag for approx. 20 seconds, dump the water, then refill your cup with hot water and steep again – most of the caffeine will be removed.

Lovers of Madura’s herbal infusions will enjoy extra benefits from drinking the ginger and peppermint blends, as they are known to alleviate morning sickness. Of course as with all aspects of pregnancy if you have any questions about what’s best for your situation, always consult your doctor.

Lasting legacy

Pregnancy heightens the senses and sharpens your focus on what you’re putting into your body.  Conscientious consumption comes to the fore and you instinctively seek out natural products that enhance your wellbeing and nurture the life growing within. Free from contaminants and handcrafted using the finest quality leaves, Madura tea ticks those boxes and more. Every aspect of the product development, tasting, grading, blending and packing is Australian – ensuring excellence from plantation to cup and safeguarding home grown industry.  At the heart of the award-winning tea company is a desire to tread lightly on the earth. This commitment to sustainability is reflected in a concerted effort to reduce Madura’s carbon footprint. The installation of more than 400 solar panels enables the company to draw the plantation’s electricity needs from the sun with any excess power being fed back into the grid.  That humble cup of tea that refreshes and rehydrates is a powerful legacy for the next generation.
