Herbal Tea While Breastfeeding

I love, love, love herbal tea, particularly during winter. I like the flavor, but really I just enjoy having a nice hot drink. I didn't drink any while pregnant, so this is my second winter without any. I'm exhausted and cold tonight and aching for a nice hot cup of tea.

I tried googling to see what kinds of teas are safe while breastfeeding, and basically everyone says, "we don't know".

Does anyone have any thoughts/advice to share? My favorite tea is Tension Tamer from Celestial Seasonings, but I also enjoy Sleepytime and Mama Bear's Cold Care (even if I'm not sick).

If herbal tea truly is out, is there any other way I can flavor hot water? I don't like hot chocolate, and I don't care for coffee, decaf or otherwise.

Herbal Tea While Breastfeeding

I always stick with Earth Mama Angel Baby brand teas while pregnant. They have an easy little chart on the box that shows what's safe while pregnant or nursing. Their Peaceful Mama tea is what I usually drink.

I love hot lemon water!! The quality of lemon juice makes a difference. My DH loves hot lemon water with honey.

Also, yes hot lemon water (I like with honey) is yummy too. Maybe add some raspberry syrup or something too? Never tried that in hot water, just carbonated mineral water. Makes it like an Italian soda.
