Seriously, green tea is great for expectant mothers! A Japanese study found that regular drinkers of green tea had double the zinc intake of non-green tea drinkers - apparently, this is A Good Thing, as zinc is one of those 'must have' minerals for pregnant women.
I've no idea how to go about organising 'shower parties' or what' would be expected (we in the UK don't have such a thing), but I think I'd go for simple blends: an Earl Grey, a Ceylon, an Assam TGFOP with a nice malty twist. A Sencha, and some Gunpowder. Perhaps a Keemun, for variety. Also: flavoured teas, black and green: mango, strawberry, etc., for the people who perhaps don't go for tea as such. You'd probably have to throw in a decaff alternative for those
kind of people
Don't think it matters whether you go for a fruit infusion, Rooibos, or straight decaff.
Have no idea whether this is of any help, but good luck!!
