Thank you Mandala! That does help! I figure I have 35 days left til my EDD (10-15-10) and I have enough tea bags to get me through for the next 5-6 days, which means I need bulk for 29-30 days. I read somewhere else to start drinking 1 oz infusions daily for the last 3 weeks or so, which is 21 oz all by itself. So to be safe I just put in an order at Mountain Rose Herbs for 2 lbs and with shipping it came out to $25.15, not bad. (I live in California and they are in Eugene, OR. I hope it's here in the next 6 days!!!)
Your book says to take 3 TBSP a day so I wonder if that comes out to an oz per day. Would be nice to know roughly what the weight of 3 Tbsp is, but I suppose it depends on the density of the herb. I have never purchased any tea or herb in bulk before, but I'll probably use my food scale to make my tea. 2 lbs is probably excessive, but I am going to try making the RRLT and orange juice popscicles in addition to my tea, and ice chips, so it doesn't go to waste.
Btw way, if you have 3 weeks left you are 2 ahead of me. Yay for October moms! When is your EDD, 10/1? Good luck and I hope the tea helps you! I didn't know much about it til THIS pregnancy otherwise I would have used it with my son too.
