Postpartum Recovery Tea Benefits

Updated: Sep 23, 2020

Postpartum Recovery Tea (代茶) is a nutritiously-packed Chinese herbal drink commonly served for new moms during the postpartum phase. This roasted rice tea has a hint of sweet fragrance and a warming effect to the stomach for better digestion. Under ancient Chinese tradition, nursing wives and postpartum caregivers would encourage one to drink this tea, in lieu of water, as a way of renourishing the body. At MotherlyCare, we believe this herbal tea is critical in the recovery process. However, as part of incorporating modern wellness approaches, we don’t discount the benefits of drinking warm or room temperature water for added hydration.

We highly recommend a few Postpartum Recovery Tea recipes for you to try. Drinking it daily can help new mom to promote blood circulation, and replenish “qi” and other organs such as liver, and kidney.

What is Postpartum Recovery Tea?

Postpartum Recovery Tea is a Chinese herbs infused Roasted Rice Tea, and is a drink commonly served during the postpartum phase in replacement of water, when new moms’ bodies are in a more vulnerable state.

The benefits of Postpartum Recovery Tea

  1. Postpartum Recovery Tea warms your stomach and keeps you hydrated, it can be even more soothing than drinking water. The fragrance of roasted rice and herbal tea also helps new moms increase their appetite.

  2. During the process of roasting the rice, the carbohydrates in them decomposes into active carbon, which absorbs excess fat in your stomach and has a slimming effect.

  3. With the carbohydrates in rice broken down, the sugar content also decreases (so you don’t have to worry about the risk of getting a high blood sugar level!).
