Is it safe to drink Tazo Zen Green Tea while pregnant?

The ingredients on the box read ‘green tea, lemon verbena, spearmint leaves, lemongrass, and other natural flavours.’
I know that pregnant women aren’t supposed to drink herbal teas in large quantities, but I’m not sure how much of the tea comprises herbs. Also, how many cups constitute a lot–more than one a day? Does anyone have more insight on this tea or teas that are blended with herbs?
Thanks.

  1. It’s very simple. You know you are not supposed to drink anyting “herbal” So dont drink it. Not even a sip. Just stay away from it. I don’t know how much or how little is safe. But it dosnt matter, just dont drink or eat herbal stuff.

  2. as long as it is caffeine free, then it is ok. I just had a baby and I asked my doctor and that is what he told me. Remember that Green tea is also an antioxidant, and it is cleansing your system out of all unwanted purities that can possibly be harmful to your child.

  3. tea IS made from herbs. they made from tea bush leaves.
    tea contains Caffine and that’s why women who are pregnant should not drink it coz caffine can affect the infant.
    Green tea is no different it actually has as much caffine as coffee.
    this is from the following website:

    Most people are quick to agree that pregnant women should cut caffeine out of their diets. But current research has shown that a moderate intake of caffeine won’t do any harm to developing fetus. Moderate intake would equal approximately 3 cups of coffee per day (300-400mg of caffeine).
    you should read the whole article it has good info.
