Re: Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

There is a thread in the Aug DDC that might help too (I think you're due the week after me )

I got mine from amazon (the traditional medicinals tea bags) in bulk, and I know quite a few friends have ordered it loose leaf online as well. I did find the bags (same brand as mine) at GNC store for about $4.50 a box, but it's cheaper to order it online

You can start drinking it anytime. Some reccomend to wait until you're term because it can give you contractions, but it doesn't really start labor (atleast not from my experience or does give me contractions though)

I thought I saw a 'rule of thumb' that it was 1-2 cups daily for the first tri, 2-3 cups in the second tri, and 3-4 in the 3rd. Personally I make 2 cups and cool it for ice tea and I'll bump it up to 3-4 cups in the next few weeks (around 36wks, I'm currently just over 33)
