I have a bit of a sore throat this morning and could use a pick me up. I know that earl grey has a little bit of caffeine in it, but I don't really drink much caffeine at all nowadays. My main concern is the lavender pieces and bergamot oil in the tea. Does anyone know if this is safe to drink during pregnancy?
I'm big on drinking hot tea, so when I found out I was preggo, I did quite a bit of research on what is and isn't safe during pregnancy. I found this (link below) during a Google search, and it cleared up the question about Earl Grey for me. I know decaf still has SOME caffeine in it, but I don't drink anything else with caffeine, so I'm not that worried about it. Here's the link: (hope it works-I'm doing this from my phone!) http://www.fertilityfriends.co.uk/fo...?topic=88552.0
Thank you! I am having a cup now and feel very reassured. I stay away from caffeine most of the time (cut out coffee entirely, mostly because I can't stomach it at all right now), so I'm allowing myself this just this once.
