The Benefits of Raspberry Leaf Tea

13 Jan

I love when life gives me signs. At least ones that point out that I’m going in the correct direction!

When my German sister-in-law was here for the holidays, she drank a million cups of tea a day, and said she does that every day (I forgot to ask her if it was just a winter thing). So I started getting in the habit of drinking tea again too because I don’t like caffeine and I always need a warm drink alternative to coffee. I had also been sick with a sore throat so tea with some honey did the trick quite well and was much more tasty than throat-numbing medicines.

My usual favorite tea is Bigelow’s I Love Lemon tea. But after a couple weeks of this I decided to branch out. In my mother’s cupboard was Raspberry Leaf Tea, and I thought that sounded familiar so I decided to brew a cup. It was good, and when I got home I continued making that tea (and drinking it out of the awesome new mug my SIL got me from a Brussels’ Starbucks).

Not but two or three days later I’m reading Outlander and nearing the end of the novel, the heroine meets an old lady who says, “I see you’re not pregnant yet. Drink raspberry leaf tea every day and that will get you knocked up.”

      It’s pretty good! I like how mild it is and i think it would be great as a iced summer tea too! Tea is the best!
