When you need a boost but caffeine is off the menu, this zingy fruit tea helps you get up & glow. Bursting with tropical flavours, it will have you energised and glowing in no time, whether you're pregnant or not.
We only use whole leaf, natural ingredients to ensure that you get the full flavour and goodness of the fruits and flowers.
Our whole leaf, plastic free, biodegradable tea bags are plant based and release fewer tannins into a brew, ensuring it is gently uplifting and smooth.
Grapes are used as the base of this tea blend. This means that along with vitamin C, you also get a gentle natural sugar lift. It's the perfect way to replicate caffeine in the healthiest way possible.
Crafted for pregnancy and beyond - you can enjoy this blend whether you're pregnant, breastfeeding or simply caffeine conscious and reducing your caffeine intake.
There's no time of life where a cup of Get Up & Glow isn't a good idea!
Totally tropical – perfectly balanced sweetness and tartness
Hibiscus Flowers - give this infusion its bright red colour, and tart sweetness that will wake up your palate.
Rosehips - have a unique sweet, fruity and deliciously tangy flavour, with warm butterscotch and vanilla notes
Grapes - balance the tart flavour with sweetness, to enhance the tropical flavours of the natural botanicals.
We don’t recommend adding milk or sugar, but follow your cravings and personal taste!
How is this a good alternative to caffeine?
Like the fresh fruits that they’re made from, the fruit in our Get Up and Glow blend have lots of health benefits. They contain a variety of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. The grapes, hibiscus flowers and rosehip peels, all contain vitamin C which will help your immune system and help to protect you picking up colds – horrific in pregnancy.
The natural, low levels of sugar that naturally occur in the fruit infusion will also give you a pick up when you need it, without flooding your system with sugar.
It’ll have you revitalised, refreshed and ready to get up and glow whether you’re pregnant, or a hard working mum.
Is hibiscus safe in pregnancy?
The short answer is yes - the NHS has no issues with hibiscus in pregnancy, but recommends not drinking more than 3 cups a day.
Google might terrify you and say that it's dangerous. But this is based on an animal study, where mice were given a huge quantity and had problems. This sounds scary, but bear in mind - the mice are given 1g of hibiscus per kg weight. This is the equivalent of a woman weighing 60kg eating 60g of hibiscus a day. One of our Get Up & Glow tea bags weighs 2.5g and has 10% hibiscus in (0.25g). You will only get around 60% of the polyphenols in the tea bag in an infusion, so per bag, 0.15g max is extracted. You'd therefore need to drink 400,000 cups a day to have the same dose and risk a similar effect (even if our bodies are different).
Study summary here: https://www.contraceptionjournal.org/article/0010-7824(86)90061-2/fulltext. So providing you don’t reach this level of hibiscus in your diet, you can definitely continue to enjoy the tea.
- Hot Brew
- Iced Tea
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.
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.
