Unblock Nursing Tea is the only herbal tea on the market that deals with engorgement. 80% of women have blockage issues while breastfeeding, now they have a solution!*
Originally mentioned in a 1'500 years old Chinese medicine book, our recipe has been used for centuries by Chinese women to deal with engorgement and blocked milk ducts.
Each tea bag is individually packed in an aluminium container so that your herbs arrive to you as fresh and fragrant as when they were packaged.
No trickery in Unblock Nursing Tea! We add nothing to our teas: no artificial aroma, no preservative, no sugar, nothing! We're 100% natural plants, the way traditional Chinese herbalism has always been done.
Unblock Nursing Tea is produced in an FDA-registered facility that follows Current Good Manufacturing Principles (CGMPs). We also rigorously lab-test our teas to make they aren't harmful to you or your baby.
According to Traditional Chinese Herbalism, any blockage in the breasts is primarily because your Qi (life force) is itself blocked and cannot properly flow through your breasts. Another key reason for a blockage-related issues is an accumulation of Heat. This is why according to Chinese Medicine your breasts sometimes feel hot to the touch when they are engorged or blocked.
Our goal with Unblock Nursing Tea is to target both these issues: to unblock your Qi and to cool down any Heat. That's why it's packed with herbs that have a Qi-tonifying action and herbs that have a cooling action.
Meridians, according to Traditional Chinese Herbalism, are the pathways through which your Qi flows. When it comes to the breasts, two meridians are generally concerned. Your Stomach Meridian because it runs through your breasts and your Liver Meridian because it runs through your nipples. Issues like clogged ducts, engorgement or uneven milk supply are thus handled with herbs that target both Liver and Stomach. The aim is to tonify the flow of Qi and to cool down any Heat in those meridians.
Unblock Nursing Tea is full of herbs that target your Liver and Stomach Meridians. Mostly Cold in nature, these herbs aim to unblock your Qi flow and to cool down accumulated Heat*.
For instance dandelions, one of our main ingredients, target both the Liver and Stomach Meridians. A Cold herb in nature, it belongs to the category of “Herbs that clear Heat and relieve Toxicity”. That makes it ideal to deal with occasional clogged ducts*.
Another ingredient, honeysuckle flowers, also target the Stomach Meridian and “clear Heat and relieve Toxicity”. Chinese herbalism often uses them together with dandelions to relieve swollen areas*.

A nursing mom must-have! I have breastfed four babies and this is by far the best product to clear engorgement and clogged ducts. Clogged ducts can be incredibly painful but this relieves the pain and helps get things moving again. Such a shame I only discovered this tea at baby number 4, this would have saved me from a lot of pain for the first 3!
After a bad case of mastitis that lasted over a month (which is immensely painful!), and out of ideas to solve the issue, a lactation consultant recommended I try this new product. I immediately gave it a try. After months of trying to massage it out by hand expression and bruising myself, after just 2 days of taking the tea - I saw results!!!! While it was small progress, it was progress. I kept at it during about 5 more days, drinking the recommended 3 tea bags a day, and the issue that had me scream in pain for so many weeks totally disappeared!!! As someone who has both an oversupply and chronic mastitis, I highly recommend this to all nursing moms!
I was a little skeptical when reading about this. Chinese medicine always has me suspicious. I still decided to give it a try because I had real bad clogged duct issues. I have to say that it works, no doubt about that. I've tried it on 3 different occasions now when I've had clogged ducts and it cleared the issue every time in 1 to 2 days, it's really effective. It tastes good too which is nice. The only slight criticism I might have is that I tend to have slight digestion issues when I take it, my stools get much looser than usual. No big deal for me given how well it works, loose stools are a cheap price to pay for this :-)
Nothing short of a miracle! I was seriously getting ready to give up breastfeeding. It had become way too painful, I kept having blocked ducts and mastitis. I tried all the common solutions (hot shower, massage, cabbage leafs, etc.) and nothing worked. Until Unblock Nursing tea: I took it and within a few hours the swelling in my breasts started reducing. By the next day, all my issues were resolved, pain-free breastfeeding again! I couldn't recommend it highly enough!
I tried this because one of my breasts kept having less milk than the other. And it worked like crazy! In just a couple of days of drinking this my milk supply was the same again in both breasts. Very efficient product!
It must be my body type, I always get plugs. I’ve done everything that could help: supplement with vitamin C, lecithin, breastfeed/pump every 3 hours and I still got mastitis. I was desperate for relief and ordered Me & Qi's Unblock Tea which was recommended by my lactation consultant. Honestly, this tea is a game changer! I haven’t gotten a single plug since taking this tea, it's been weeks! Also I can sleep a little longer between feeds/pumps! If you’re as desperate as I was, take the plunge and give the tea a try. I’m so happy I did!
