Co-Founder Bethan Thomas spoke on the new HotTea Mama tea blends saying, "I have a degree in Tea Science and, when Kate was pregnant, she would often ask me for advice on what she could drink. I would tap into my knowledge to recommend herbs and blends that could help her with morning sickness, or be a satisfying replacement for caffeinated drinks. This research helped me, too, when I was expecting my first child. We kept asking ourselves, why is nobody offering this kind of product? We had no answer, but we loved the concept. Our teas have won awards and we’re now selling over a million teabags a year. Our costumers came to us asking about PCOS, fertility, endometriosis, PMS and menopause, and we saw there was a gap in the market for a product or two that targeted these issues. We’re delighted with what we’ve created and look forward to this new journey.”
