Additional Info

Head Start  is the perfect tea for any tired tea-lover or new mum.

It is a delicate  blend of white peony tea and whole rosebuds. 

White tea is high in both caffeine and theanine. Whilst the caffeine level in a cup of Head Start is higher than a normal builder's brew, the theanine gives it a slow release effect for a long, gentle boost.

As well as being higher in caffeine than black tea, White Peony white tea has also been shown to be high in anti-oxidants.

Rosebuds have been used for millennia to ease period cramps, and we've included them to bring a delicious aroma but also comfort.

Delicately floral – mellow white tea and fragrant rose.

White Peony has a soft, delicate flavour with notes of melon and cucumber

Rose buds are sweet and floral

In combination, the tea is uplifting, delicate and balanced.

How much caffeine is in Head Start?

The white tea that we use as the base of this blend, means it has c. 90mg per cup. This is lower than a filter coffee which has c. 140mg per cup. But it is higher than a cup of builder's tea (75mg). It is safe to have when pregnant or breastfeeding, as NHS guidelines are that you should limit caffeine to 200mg per day. Just be aware that you shouldn't have more than 2 cups of this tea a day. And also just be aware that chocolate and soft drinks also have some caffeine in them. There's a great caffeine calculator to help you monitor caffeine intake, made by Tommy's

What is Theanine?

The white tea in this blend is very high in a compound called theanine. This is a relaxing chemical, which gives the tea a gentle slow release effect.

How can Rosebuds help post-birth?

Rosebuds have been used for millennia in the Middle East to ease menstrual cramps and pains. We believe it can therefore help relieve cramps that you may suffer from postnatally, either after a c-section or natural birth.

  • Hot Brew
  • Iced Tea
  • hot_brew_image
  • Each of our packs has simple instructions on it, but essentially you should use 1 tea bag per person, and freshly boiled water for all except Head Start. This tea works best with 80-degree water (let your kettle sit for 5 minutes with the lid open after boiling). Brew for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like it.

  • hot_brew_image
  • Use 1 bag per 300ml of water (this is the average size of a water glass) Add freshly boiled water, as if you were making a normal cuppa. Place the glass, with the tea bag still in, in your fridge to cool. Enjoy once cool - add lots of ice and fruit if you're feeling fancy.
