I've been drinking one cup of either peppermint, raspberry, or lemon honey chamomile herbal tea for the past few days, but that might be such a good idea. I wanted to share this article I found with you. Think I might get some black decaf tea today.

Huh, good information. I hadn't heard anything like that, and I see to recall peppermint tea being recommended often for MS? Oh, well. I hate tea anyway.

Yeah, I read that somewhere too. It's confusing, but I guess it's better to err on the side of caution...and there's always minty gum!

I hate that there's always conflicting information everywhere! Drives me bonkers.

This is a nice guide to teas by the American Pregnancy Association.

Drinking Herbal Teas during Pregnancy

According to this, many commercial herbal teas are safe.

Thanks for posting this. I love tea, especially as it gets cooler. I hadn't even thought that some may not be good.

Thanks for the link. It seems like a much more legitimate source. I like the list of herbs and whether they are likely safe or unsafe.

I had DH pick up some decaf lipton yesterday. I add a bit (....ok, maybe more than a bit...) of honey to that and it's delicious.
