Anyone have a favorite website to order loose leaf tea?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I am wanting a nettle and RRL tea loose leaf blend.  I know a few local stores carry it here in Portland but unfortunately, I will have no time to get out this week and get some.  I checked Mountain Rose Herbs but can't find that blend.

 

Thought I would check here to see if you ladies had any suggestions.

 

Hope everyone is doing well. It has been a very busy time for me as my husband is finishing his thesis for grad school and I have been parenting a 3 year old smarty pants full time while taking care of most everything else.  But he graduates in 3 weeks!!!!

 

I am about15 weeks now and growing bigger everyday.  I am still amazed how much bigger I am this time around!

 

Take care, mamas and happy Sunday!

I Used Mountain Rose Herbs and just bought RRL and Nettle and mixed it myself. I also put alfalfa in there too.

Oh really?  I did not realize I could do that.  How much did you order of each? Like how much would be one tea serving? Tell me more about the alfalfa....

Thanks!

This is a really good post on all the good things about alfala.

One thing I think is really cool about it is it has lots of VitK so if you don't plan on getting baby the shot, baby can get some from your breastmilk if you have been drinking alfalfa during pregnancy. 

 

I do strong infusions into iced tea and drink a ton every day starting about half way through so I always order a lot of herbs. I order the most of RRL as that makes up 70% and then I do 15% and 15% for nettle and alfalfa. I make a pitcher every day and a half!

Great! Thank you! We are due on the same day:) Have you started drinking your tea yet?  I just started....

 

I haven't been pregnant in about 3 years so I am trying to remember all the things I want to be/should be doing.

Hippie - would you mind giving us the amounts you use of tea like measurements of teaspoons and how much water you use?  That would be awesome.

This is what I do as well. I really love MRH. The quality is great and the prices are reasonable.

I used to do Alfalfa as well, but it turns out that you just don't get much vit K with supplementing. You're body doesnt store it or transfer it to baby well, so I don't bother anymore.

I buy the pound sizes of RRL and Nettle.

and you do 50/50 RRL and Nettle?  I forgot to have dh pick up some Nettle when he went to the store yesterday.  Though I'm not sure they have it, but I think they do.
