Recently, I received wonderful news! A friend of my chatomo (tea-lover friends) is expecting a baby. Congratulations!!
Speaking of which, it is often talked about possible effect of caffeine on mothers-to-be. Caffeine is contained more or less not only in tea, but also in coffee, chocolate and some other drinks.
Of course, it is really important to pay extra attention to what you eat and what you drink. But, does this mean expectant mothers have to avoid all of them? What is Japanese common idea on Japanese tea?
Having said that, Sencha is not always something to avoid. There is a view to support as follows: Sencha contains zinc, which will benefit expectant mothers.
Generally speaking, many seem to drink tea as controlling caffeine, since tea could be a supporter for them to relax and spend happy "mothers-to-be" time.
