Beauty Teas - try our stunningly beautiful beauty teas!

We have carefully researched the herbs and teas that can be used to enhance our beauty at Mama Tea and the result is a stunning selection of beauty teas. 

AHPRODITE BEAUTY TEA

This tea contains Sencha Green Tea, Kukicha green tea, Pai Mu Tan white tea, dragon fruit pieces, lemon grass, flavouring, freeze-dried kiwifruit, raspberry pieces and pomegranate arils.

Aphrodite Beauty Tea a daily beauty essential; creating beauty from the inside out! We have blended together teas and herbs that are all natural collagen boosters for the skin. Collagen is vital for strengthening blood vessels and giving skin its natural elasticity and strength. The degradation of collagen causes wrinkles and other skin issues. The body makes collagen naturally but it is always good to supply the body with the raw ingredients to maintain the collagen you have and add more.


Ahrodite Beauty Tea has a very high percentage of both green tea and white tea. 79% of this tea is Pai Mu Tan White tea.

A recent study showed that both white tea and green tea contained anti-aging and antioxidant qualities that helped to maintain collagen naturally in the skin. See extract of Study here.

White tea has a very high polyphenol count which in incredibly important when attempting to maintain skin elasticity. The study referred to above, showed that extracts in white tea inhibit wrinkle production by strengthening elastin and collagen, which helps to prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles.


Green tea is also an essential tea to drink if trying to assist the maintenance and production of collagen naturally. Green tea contains catechins which are phytonutrients that act as antioxidants and prevent the breakdown of collagen.

The exotic dragon fruit looks pretty but it also helps you stay pretty with it's amazing collagen boosting properties. A member of the cacti family, it is the harsh growing environment of the dragon fruit that has contributed to it's magnificent anti ageing properties. This plant needs to conserve water to survive, therefore it contains high level of saccharides which means that it also helps your skin stay hydrated and this in turn helps to keep skin tight and firm.

All good reasons to pour yourself a cuppa of this beauty tea!

 

Try New Mama - our delicious breastfeeding herbal tea

FENNEL, FENUGREEK and NETTLE

All three herbs above are known as "galactagogues" - they are herbs that help your body to produce breast milk and get it flowing. All of them are in New Mama - our breastfeeding herbal tea.

We have also included lemon balm, a herb that helps with the "baby blues".

Breastfeeding is difficult for a lot of women at first......getting baby to latch on, coping with the lack of sleep and the sheer exhaustion of a new baby. Getting the milk flowing is one thing you no longer have to worry about, as New Mama solves this problem. 

Mama Tea was started by a mama, Anna Louise Simpson, who had been through difficult pregnancies and struggled with breastfeeding. She worked with a Master Tea Blender and a top Medical herbalist to create this wonderful herbal tea for new mamas.

Use rooibos tea to get a little glow.......

New Mama contains three herbs which are known as  “galactagogues” – they are all natural and are nettle, fennel and fenugreek. All of these natural herbs have been used for years for women trying to aid breast milk production and are responsible for working with a breastfeeding woman’s hormones to create breast milk and get flow going.

 

Number 2 - Mastitis relief

Anna, the Mama of Mama Tea, who created the Mama Tea range not only wanted to help women with breastfeeding but Anna has Mastitis whilst she was breastfeeding, therefore Anna really wanted to include Red Clover in New Mama breastfeeding herbal tea. This lovely herb not only tastes lovely but will also help women relieve the symptoms of mastitis.

Reason 3 – Help with the “baby blues”

Most new mamas suffer from the “baby blues” due to hormonal changes after childbirth. Some go on to experience post-natal depression in various forms. Anna is open about her experience with post-natal depression and wanted to specifically include a herb to help naturally lift the mood. This is why she included Lemon Balm in our breastfeeding tea. Perfectly safe for baby whilst breastfeeding and also helps mama.

Morning Mama - Ginger Herbal Tea

Morning Sickness

If you are one of the unlucky ones like Anna (founder of Mama Tea), you thought that your daily “morning” sickness would subside after week 12 and you would be wrong. Anna suffered with morning sickness until week 24 with her first pregnancy and week 20 with her second baby. She recalls how it felt:
“I would wake up and feel sick, so I would have a teeny tiny slice of toast and it would subside for all of…..2 minutes. I then tried NOT eating and it became much worse. I tried eating more and the same. It was delicate balancing act with food to ensure you were eating the right foods and just the right balance of food. Awful! I remember my husband buying ginger nut biscuits but the smell was too overpowering, so the only person that ate ginger nut biscuits to help with morning sickness in our household was my husband!”

When Anna decided to create a natural range of teas to help with pregnancy and breastfeeding, she was very careful to blend the ginger morning sickness tea so that it was not too overpowering and was a subtle taste and smell.

Morning Mama Ginger and Chamomile Herbal Tea


Morning Mama ginger tea is a delicious ginger tea blend that is completely natural and caffeine-free. Morning Mama has some lovely goodies blended in, all to help combat morning sickness.

Anna blended in whole chamomile heads, lemon peel and orange peel. She also added a touch of lemon balm. The reason for including all of these extra herbs is that ALL of them help with nausea and sickness, so Morning Mama is a powerful morning sickness remedy!


Morning Mama Review


We received this testimonial only last week – have a read – Morning Mama helped this customer to keep working at the early stages of her pregnancy….

“I started using Morning Mama Tea when I was 6 weeks pregnant. I was sceptical about the tea helping,but the nausea and sickness was unbearable. I can honestly say that the tea has helped me cope with the nausea and helped me to manage working whilst not feeling my best. This is my third pregnancy and the nausea has stayed with me until I was 23 weeks. I found brewing the tea in a thermos cup great as I could sip the tea throughout the day and the tea stayed hot”.

Melanie, 27 weeks pregnant and mother of two beautiful girls.


If you are suffering with morning sickness, give Morning Mama a go and please let us know if it has helped you too!

All the best

Anna
