First of all, I’m a tea newbie! But I thought I’ve give it a try when I needed a little boost after going back to work and starting the pumping game. I got the original recipe from this website, but I added a other few things I found from other websites to. I ordered most of my herbs from MountainRose Herbs online for about $25 and had WAY too much. Enough to share with multiple friends. I mixed it all together in a mason pint jar and then brewed a pot at a time or in individual cups. You can make your own tea bags like this, or I used a loose tea infuser like this.

 

Here’s my recipe!

  • 1/2 cup nettle leaf, dried
  • 1/2 cup red raspberry leaf, dried (nourishing tonic for the reproductive system, high in calcium)
  • 1/4 cup alfalfa leaf, dried
  • 1/4 cup dandelion leaf, dried
  • 1/4 cup fennel seed (Increase milk production and tone the digestive system, curtailing colic and indigestion)
  • 1/4 cup blessed thistle, dried (Stimulates the milk flow and helps restore vitality)
  • 1/4 cup fenugreek seed
  • 1-2 TBLS fenugreek powder (strong stuff!)
  • ground cinnamon, to flavor

Mix it all together in a container (I used a mason jar) and enjoy! About 1 TBLS per cup of tea.
