Take a sip
New mums and mums-to-be are very busy people, and often just taking the time to brew a cup of tea can seem like a challenge. But staying well hydrated is important for health, especially while pregnant or breastfeeding. Along with drinking plenty of water, sipping on a soothing cup of caffeine-free herbal tea can be a delicious way to take time out and support your own wellbeing. Pukka’s new Motherkind Pregnancy and Motherkind Baby teas have been specially created by master herbsmith Sebastian Pole to help nurture the female body during this special time. Made using the finest-quality, sustainably-sourced organic ingredients including herbs, fruits and flowers, the teas gently infuse to make a delicious cuppa that can be enjoyed at any time of day. All Pukka’s teas are free from artificial ingredients and are made with bags that will always be bleach and plastic-free, 100 percent biodegradable and compostable.
