Iced Lactation Tea | The Perfect Summer Drink

Iced Lactation Tea | The Perfect Summer Drink

Posted by Kelly Northey on 16th Nov 2019

Now that we're well and truly into summer here in Australia, we all know how important keeping our fluids up is, but it's easy to fall into the trap of either not drinking enough or drinking unhealthy options. All too often too these seemingly health options are cleverly disguised to appear so, but can be full of sugar and other nasties.
If you're breastfeeding too, then there's even more need to keep your fluid uptake at an even higher level and we know how boring water can get when you have to drink so much of it!
However, did you know that infusing your water with a natural tea blend is a great way to change it up and keep it interesting? If you use our 100% organic, caffeine free Lactation Tea it will not only taste beautiful, refreshing and soothing, but it can also help boost your milk supply too!

Health Benefits of Iced Tea

Antioxidants

A natural, unsweetened Ice Tea contains antioxidants which will help your body fight off disease as well as help slow down the aging process and even help towards healthier skin - who doesn't want all these benefits?

Caffeine Free

Choosing a natural, herbal tea like our Lactation Tea will give you a caffeine and guilt free drink you can enjoy safely while breastfeeding or drink at any time of day or night without it disturbing your body's sleep patterns or doing any of the damage to your overall health that caffeine can do.

Can Help You Lose Weight

A natural Iced Tea can even help you lose weight as it will have zero calories, but is a great way to still get that 'sweet hit' when you feel you need something instead of reaching for a chocolate bar!
Many people find too that replacing any sugary drinks you would usually drink with Iced Tea has helped them reduce their overall sugar daily sugar intake and help lose weight too.

Ensure it's 100% Organic

Like all beverages with health benefits, they're going to be the highest quality of ingredients with the highest amounts of nutrients minus any hidden nasties if you choose only 100% organic blends. Our Lactation Tea is sourced from an ACO (Australian Certified Organic) Processor so you can rest assured of only the best tea for your health.

Added Benefits of Drinking Iced Lactation Tea

Milk boosting ingredients like Aniseed, Fennel, Fenugreek and Marshmallow root are the obvious benefit to drinking an Iced Lactation Tea this summer, but if you choose our Lactation Tea to brew your tea from, it also contains a whole host of other uniquely blended additions designed to help overall health of new mums and in fact anyone at all!

Lavender isn't just included in our tea because of it's calming scent. Did you konw that lavender tea can also help support digestive health by soothing all manner of digestive issues and that it also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help irritated stomach muscles, eliminating stomach pain?

Alfalfa Leaf included in our Lactation Tea contains phytoestrogens or plant-estrogens, which can increase breast tissue and milk supply?!
No wonder it’s been used for centuries as a galactagogue (milk boosting) ingredient!
It’s also rich in antioxidants, low in saturated fat, can help stimulate digestion, decrease inflammation in the body, help regulate blood sugar and even may help lower cholesterol!

Our Lactation Tea has zero added sugar, yet still remains naturally sweet enough to drink without needing sweetner, so if used to replace any fruit juice or soft drinks you usually would consume during the warmer months means you can drastically lower your sugar intake in this regard which is a huge plus for your health overall.

How To Make Iced Lactation Tea

The beautiful thing about this is it's simplicity!

Just add the usual amount of our Lactation Tea loose leaf tea to your teapot, tea infuser, brewpot (like this cold brew pot) or whatever you would usually make it in.

  • Add hot water and then chill in the fridge until cold.
  • Serve with ice or add a squeeze of lemon or some fresh mint to change up the taste and voila! You have Iced Lactation Tea on hand to sip throughout the day.

We find our tea is naturally sweet thanks to it's unique blend of ingredients that it doesn't require any sweetening, but you can add a dash of honey for an extra sweet treat.
Or you can also add additional health boosting ingredients to it such as your daily Apple Cider Vinegar shots to help alkalize the body and this is an equally tasty way to drink this daily.

Your body will thank you and if you're breastfeeding, so will your baby!
