Before I discovered my love of loose leaf tea, Traditional Medicinals was one of my favorite go-to bagged brews. Pregnancy spurred me into finding an affordable, easy to brew, but still tasty tea that would help support my body during such a hormonal time. Organic Pregnancy Tea has fit the bill!
I steep two bags to a cup for a stronger flavor. I use boiling hot water, cover my cup, and steep for at least 10 minutes, but not quite 15. I add about a half teaspoon of sugar to the cup as well.
The tea brews up a fairly dark brown color and is light and minty tasting. I don’t find this tea bitter or astringent like at all, which some of the bagged medicinal teas have issues with. This is a great morning and afternoon tea since the minty taste is quite refreshing. It does end with a bit of a dry mouth, but following up this cup with a glass of water is a good idea for pregnant ladies!
Not sure how much of an effect on my pregnancy or birth this tea has had or will have (baby is due in about 6 weeks!) but I’ve also not been consistent in drinking it. I may try to be better about having at least a cup a day until the end of the pregnancy now as a bit of an experiment!
