Do you think its harmful to drink oolong tea?

While in your first trimester. Or just in general during pregnancy? Because I now in the history of Oolong Tea, it is caffeinated and promotes and assists in weight-loss. Due to the extreme effects of those claims. I was not sure if it could affect pregnancy, as to the development or well being of the child.

  • Naa, I doubt it will do a thing. It is certainly no worse than having a coke or something. As with many things, just don't drink a gallon of it and you'll be fine. =)

  • How much will your be drinking? It it's just a cup or so a day, you should be fine. I'd speak with an herbalist to be sure.
