  • It depends on what the tea contains. There are certain herbs used in tea that are contra-indicated during pregnancy. Pesonally, I would recommend rooibos tea, It's naturally caffeine-free and high in anti-oxidants.

  • I'd rather have caffeine than risk a herb tea that has something in it that could cause miscarriage.
