Question about Jasmine Tea During Pregnancy.....

I haven't been pregnant since 2006 and I know I remember something about jasmine tea, not being ok during pregnancy. I just need some confirmation I dearly love my Lipton's "Green Tea, Passion fruit and Jasmine tea".   I don't want to give it up unless I absolutely have to.

In moderation, it's just fine.  It's the caffiene that we're usually wanred away from, as long as you stay hydrated (lots of juice/water), and don't drink nothing BUT your tea, it's perfectly fine :)

"

Warning

   It isn't recommended to consume jasmine tea in big quantities, especially in cases of pregnancy. It is also not recommended to consume jasmine tea on an empty stomach, to prevent causing high acidity. After 5 pm it is best if the consumption of jasmine tea is ceased to prevent insomnia."

It doesn't say why though.

"Jasmine is sometimes used in aromatherapy during labor to help ease the labor; however, Jasmine should not be consumed during pregnancy" - http://www.crazyfortea.com/jasmineherb.html

I've been looking online many places for the answer to your same question, I found several places that say in moderation and such like that, but then I came accross this one. I think probably better safe than sorry, but you can always try to check with your doctor to be sure.
