Green Tea — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Green Tea

Ladies what is a good type of Green Tea to drink? I am NOT a tea drinker, but I am looking to go all this cycle since it will be our last try for a little bit and I am willing to suffer through it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Also does anyone know if POM juice is highly acidic or not? I am alergic to the acidity in foods and juices...so I was wondering if anyone knew.

TIA!

Re: Green Tea

  • I drink Honest Tea's Moroccan Mint Green Tea and I love it. They also have a Just Green Tea, which I enjoy as well. Both are served cold. You can get it at Whole Foods.

    I'm not sure about POM, but I cut it with water anyways because it's a little sharp for my tastes.

  • I'm not sure about the acidity of POM juice. I have IBS and A LOT of food intolerances, and I can't drink it.....it gives me the runs, bad Embarrassed.

    I am thinking about green tea this month but I am allergic to black teas (which green tea actually is), so I'm kind of on the fence about it. I really don't need any more gastrointestinal upset than I already live with on a daily basis. I think I will just stick with my Benylin (guaifenesin) for CM.

  • As a side note, I really don't think green tea does a lot, I think 3000 mg a day of EPO does a lot more.

    Just discovered Teavana last month. <3 I was looking for an earl grey alternative and their white earl grey blend is fantastic.

  • I love Pomegranate Green Tea (I think it's Bigalow) and Lipton Green Tea with White Mangosteen and Peach. The last smells so good, it seems to fill up the entire room! lol.
