From Traditional Medicinals

Organic Raspberry Leaf tea supports the female system* by aiding healthy menstruation as well as toning the uterus.* For millennia European and Native American women have safely used raspberry leaf for irregular menstruation, menstrual cramps and during pregnancy.* Today naturopaths and nurse-midwives often recommend raspberry leaf tea for these traditional uses. Raspberry leaf has a robust, full-bodied flavor reminiscent of fine black tea, making it an excellent choice for a caffeine-free breakfast or afternoon tea.

Drinking this as someone recommended it during the last trimester of pregnancy. I like it better steeped at 15 minutes than I do at 10. And actually the one time I forgot about it for longer it tasted better. It has a semblance to a Ceylon black tea, and is an enjoyable cup for me. I will drink this until baby comes (she’s due 10/24!!!) and maybe for cramps and such down the road.

It seems odd to me that Raspberry Leaf would be recommended during pregnancy (even third trimester) because I’ve always understood it to be a big no-no, specifically in early months. Congratulations, though!!

Uniquity

That sounded weird, and of course I can’t edit it. I guess I’m wondering what the raspberry leaf does that’s beneficial in later months while it’s dangerous in early ones. If that makes sense!

Meghann M

I believe in the early months it is shunned due to risk of miscarraige, but I don’t remember why. I know many have recommended it in the third trimester for uterine muscle toning and overall uterus health. On the American Association of Pregnancy’s website it is an herb that is “considered safe” during pregnancy. That’s about all I know, though, and I am no doctor, so hopefully any other pregnant women would check with their dr before taking this tea.

Uniquity

Thanks for the info, Meghann. I did some extra research after as well and apparently this is one of those items that’s in hot debate. You’d think “we’d” have proven it one way or another by now. : )

Sigh… I’m still here. Baby is now 5 days overdue and I’m on day 6 of pre-labour contractions, but nothing regular enough to send me to the hospital to deliver this kid! I’m exhausted. I’m weary. I’m ready to meet this little boy of mine!

I’ve tried everything: walking, cleaning the bathroom, cleaning the kitchen, climbing stairs 40x, walking some more, driving on bumpy roads (effects my bladder more than my uterus), more walking, shoveling snow, eating pineapple, and now… drinking mug after mug of this tea.

I’ll be honest. This tea tastes… like… leaves, but not in a vegetal, spinachy kind of way. It tastes like vegetation. Not the most pleasant taste, but if it advances my labour then I’ll drink as much as I can stomach! Let’s get this baby out, shall we?

Eeeek!! I hope everything goes well!! Sending well-wishes your way :)

Cavocorax

I hope it works!

This is probably TMI but I used to belong to La Leche League and they used to recommend massaging your nipples or trying to get your milk started could help release those hormones and get the baby out!

Indigobloom

Oh dear! can they induce labour for you? can’t wait to hear about your little one :)

This is actually drinkable, unlike Alvita’a raspberry leaf, which tastes like dirt to me!

I can’t stand the taste of this tea, but I want to drink it for its health benefits. I’ve tried combining it with orange spice herbal tea, peppermint tea, and mint medly … Any other suggestions?

I have some grenadine syrup that adds some nice pomegranity flavor; wonder if that would cover up whatever it is that you don’t care for….

Twilight

I hadn’t even thought of adding anything as powerful as that, but that should work! Thanks.

Azure Luna

what sort of flavors do u tend to like? I like like it b/c it doesn’t taste like chamomile to me which i can’t take at all unless it has something added to it.

Twilight

For herbals I really like peppermint, but I don’t drink a lot of herbal in the first place.

Well, my body has decided that it’s time to remind me that I’m fertile (took long enough), and for the past few days there has never been a cup of this far from me.

I think I’m in the very small minority here in that I really like the taste of this. My mother got it for me some years ago because painkillers normally don’t work very well on me and I can get pretty crippling cramps at times. It doesn’t always do anything, and maybe it’s a bit of a placebo affect because I like the taste of the tea, but it can really help with my cramps. No experience on any other related benefits, but this is my number one cramp tea.

I also find that I actually enjoy the taste better when I’m on period? I suppose someone could come up with some kind of “it’s because of hormones” explanation, but really, all I care about is that I really like this tea and it’s great for my cramps.

nope you are not the only one. I like the taste of this to!!
Actually, I got a tin of it from Tea Emporium but it’s going stale because I only have some every so often, when I need it…

because of the research of the herb that is in this tea i have decided to use this tea as a easy way to get the nutrition for my pregnancy

p.s. thank you Susan Weed for all your knowledge on women heath and teas I am going to open my mind to the experience and try not to connect it to anything to avoid attaching the taste to any thing else. so I’m not minding the smell though one sec and i tell you if i like the taste :)…. actually hot i don’t mind it at all i was trying at all odds no to hate the taste i can’t really explain how it tastes but nothing like it smells. i could summon it all up to being pregnant but I’m betting it’s just all how you go in .. if u have an open mind and know why you’re drinking it i guess it’s not as bad. I defendanty like it compared to some of the other herbal tastes I have endured in the past lol i will be keeping this in my cupboard and using it regularly

Earthy tasting. Added nothing more than honey to help sweeten but I don’t think I added enough. Not really a excellent tasting tea but can be made to taste better.

Today I was in need of some pain relief so I brewed a cup of this. I then promptly forgot about it and let it steep for probably around 25 minutes. Interestingly enough ,it didn’t taste like I had over-brewed it, and it didn’t taste as bland as usual. Not a bad cup, and certainly helps the cramps, wether it’s a placebo or not. :)

Personally, I think this tea tastes horrible. I’m drinking it for the health benefits (we’re trying to conceive). I did follow another reviewer’s tip of steeping it for closer to 15 minutes and it did improve the taste.

I agree. What is it even supposed to taste like? To me, it may as well be old tree leaves.

Gentle relief for menstrual cramps. I drink this tea solely for this purpose. Tastes better with honey.
