When I make mine, I simmer about 4 quarts of water, and while it's heating up, I put a handful of loose tea into three quart-sized mason jars. Then I ladle the hot water into the jars and put the lids on, then I leave them overnight, and strain into a 2-quart pitcher in the morning, and put it in the fridge and drink out of that for a couple of days.
DD's labor was 12 hours and DS's labor was 8 hours, so I'm hoping the tea had something to do with it, and I plan on drinking tea with this one, too, although it's my first winter pregnancy so I might be drinking it hot this time.
Thanks, This would work well with my schedule. I'll try it out as soon as I get the quart jars.
Thanks so much.
