Alcohol free, tea total, mulled wine recipe

Pack of Get Up & Glow fruit tea on a Christmas tree mat, next to a wine glass full of tea mulled wine


Christmas can be a slightly depressing time to be pregnant, with most people out drinking mulled wine and prosecco in the evenings, and strong coffee in the morning.

No such luck if you’re growing a tiny human.

In solidarity with those who can’t drink this Christmas time, we’ve put together an alternative mulled wine recipe, using our Get Up & Glow tea bag, spices and a spatter of orange juice.  You can enjoy the festive spirit, with none of the ‘spirit’!


A Mulled Wine Christmas Pregnancy Tea           

Ho, Ho, Ho

You will need… (per person)

1 x Get Up & Glow whole leaf tea bag

1 x star anise

3 x cloves

2 x cardamom pods

100ml freshly boiled water

50ml orange juice


How to do it

Steep the Get Up & Glow tea bags and spices in the freshly boiled water for 15 minutes in a saucepan, make it super strong
