The liquid is a deep amber color with a definite green tint. It smells minty and slightly vegetal. The taste is mint but also chamomile. It’s only the slightest bit bitter.

This is definitely a feel better tea, one you might crave when feeling sick. I felt yesterday that I might be coming down with a cold, but today I feel pretty much back to normal. Maybe it was the citrus tea or maybe it has something to do with the multivitamins I started taking. I’m not sure, but I thought it would be best to banish any remnants of sickness with a cup of this tea.

My stomach is bothering me today, so I decided to try this. I don’t know if the bag I have is old, but this didn’t really have much punch, even when steeping for the full recommended 10 minutes. Meh.

At first I was hesitant about this tea, I thought it didn’t taste as clean as the Yogi brand of Peppermint (which I couldn’t find at the store last night). But it is an easy, smooth tea that is absolutely delicious! Very happy with this tea’s taste and fresh smell. :)

I’m 1.5 weeks from my due date! I’m sooooo ready to meet this baby and also to get my body back. I had the easiest pregnancy up until the last couple months. I’ve gained more weight than I should have and I’m not all that tall. I think my body wasn’t built to handle this much weight, so I’m pretty much in constant pain. Sleeping is the worst. Any time I’m laying down, I hurt everywhere: hips, thighs, abdomen, back. It’s obnoxious! I get about an hour of sleep and then I wake up in so much pain that the only way to get rid of it is to stand up and walk around, which obviously means I’m exhausted and fatigued. This is much harder than I had anticipated. I walk at the speed of a 95-year-old lady. I constantly feel like I have to pee even when there’s no pee in me. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because I vomit in my sleep. Yuck. I feel helpless. It’s rather pitiful. I can’t wait to be normal again. And of course, it’s all worth it. But that doesn’t make the pain any less at this moment. At least I’m not afraid of labor anymore! The number one word to describe how I feel about labor is excited! Bring it on! Well, that was a huge digression but at least an on topic one. :)

ON TO THE TEA!

I tend to steep this once for 5 minutes and then again for 15. That way I get two cups out of one teabag. Today I kind of forgot about it and steeped it for 20 minutes out of the gate. Whoops! Anyway, this tea is a surprise. I guess I always assumed red raspberry leaf would be red and taste like raspberries. But it’s the color of your average herbal (a dark amber) and tastes like mint. Watered down mint; it’s not super strong.

Overall, it’s an enjoyable tea. It’s obviously not something I would drink if I wasn’t pregnant, but I can recommend it to other women in their third trimester. Now I have no idea if this will bring on labor any faster, but it’s supposed to be good for me. So I plan on drinking two cups a day until I run out of tea or the baby arrives, whichever comes first. Let’s hope it’s the latter. :) Come on, baby! We want to meet you!

Bless your heart! I remember those days. You are right though, it’s all going to be worth it when you’re holding that sweet baby. Good luck. Remember you’re stronger than you think!

The last few weeks were definitely worse than the delivery for me. Knowing that the end is in sight really makes a difference. Arnica lotion really helped with my aches and pains. I know you can buy it, or you can make it yourself: http://healthimpactnews.com/2012/pain-relieving-coconut-oil-arnica-salve-recipe/ . It’s really good for tension headaches, bruises, and soreness from exercising as well.

I love raspberry leaf tea!

Thanks all! The end is in sight. :) And thanks for the link, rosebudmelissa! I’ve never heard of arnica before, but I’ll be sure to check it out. :)

Drinking this single bag someone sent me while back. Glad its just one, not my sort of thing. Too much woo. Doesn’t taste too bad, once I added some lemon, but not something I will buy.

Flavors: Licorice

It’s pretty awesome. It tastes exactly how it’s described and not bitter at all. Pretty effective sleep aid, way more effective than that of Tazo

The hospital sent me home with a couple bags of this, so I decided to give it a try. It tastes mostly of black licorice (from the anise), and I quite like it. Which is interesting since I don’t like any of the teas I’ve tried that have been flavored with actual licorice.

Flavors: Anise

I ain’t drinking this one for fun…. Although surprisingly it tastes pretty good. It’s minty and full of warm spices, like an Italian Christmas cookie. I loaded it with honey because I desperately need this sore throat to pull a Meg Ryan and go into hiding.

It’s not bad. Like all Traditional Medicinal teas that I’ve had, it feels good going down. I hope it supplements the DayQuil. I was lucky enough to get sick on my days off, so hopefully today will be the worst of it.

Backlog. I got some of this recently and tried it for the first time last night. I was surprised at how good it was. The roasted and slightly bitter taste reminded me a lot of coffee but without the acid reflux I get from coffee. I had mine with soymilk and it was yummy. The only negative thing is that dandelion root is a diuretic; after drinking a big mug of this I was in the bathroom constantly! So if you’re feeling bloated this might be a good thing. Otherwise I will need to be careful with this stuff and stick to a smaller cup. Yowsa!

This is great for liver cleansing, which is part of why you’ll end up peeing so much ;) I like it cold-steeped with lemon in it or mixed with other berry-flavored herbals.

I am not a fan of ginger. I wish I was though as I know the many health benefits associated with it. I just don’t like the taste, especially if it’s on it’s own. This tea has a strong, natural ginger taste which I think lovers of ginger would appreciate. I drink it when I’m sick as I know it helps, even though I do not enjoy the taste. It deserves a higher rating than I’ve given it but I just can’t rate it higher because I don’t like ginger! However, I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a good ginger tea.

Herbal tea of the morning. I think I will try to drink a bit less caffeine than I did yesterday, but I feel like I need to drink a lot of fluids. I guess it’s herbal tea & decafs this morning, especially since it’s cold in my apartment.

This is just a basic herbal concoction that is supposed to be good for your liver with different plants like burdock, dandelion, cleavers and stinging nettle. The lemon myrtle is the only thing that gives it much flavor. this is better with a little sweetener, but does that cancel out the effects of the detox? I guess that’s a personal decision. I don’t know if this really works but it certainly can’t hurt anything (unless you have a pre-existing liver or gastro ailment) … Flavor is not wonderful but bearable. I used two teabags in a 10 oz. mug and steeped for 15 minutes per the directions.
