Who here loves tea? I am not going to lie to you fine folks, I was not a tea fan until I met my husband. Even then I would drink it just because. I never really WANTED to drink tea, until I saw these things.
I mean, really? Who wouldn’t want to drink tea with those in your cup? This is so much more fun than cracking open a soda (and so much more healthy), or even using a boring tea bag. You know what’s even BETTER about loose leaf tea? You will know exactly what is being put into your tea. I, however, don’t have any idea how to make a delicious tea. I know that you blend certain spices and herbs with your tea, but that seems like an awful lot of work. Don’t fear, Our Sweet Earth is here! (Cheesy, I know, but it’s the truth! They saved my butt, I will explain later.)
Our Sweet Earth is a wonderful shop on Etsy. Shannon, the owner, makes the perfect tea! She sent me Mother’s Milk Tea, Red Chai, African Lavender, Passionate, and Peppermint Rose to review. All of her teas are Organic and made for women at any time in their life. All of her teas have wonderful health benefits. One that I didn’t get to try, but sounded fantastic promotes heart health! These are a few that I got to try.
Mother’s Milk Tea: It’s delicious and soothing, and helps promote healthy lactation. This definitely helped me when I made a huge mistake (I will explain that a little later on). Shannon will also tweak the tea for you if it doesn’t work. How wonderful is that?
Red Chai: I LOVE Chai tea. LOVE it. I had never experienced Red Chai before, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. It’s slightly spicy it includes an abundant amount of ginger, which is perfect for the expectant Mother with morning sickness. It also has Red Roobios which is bursting with antioxidants.
African Lavender: This was delicious. Very soothing and smooth tasting. This also has RedRoobios and lavender. Packed with antioxidants and relaxing properties.
Passionate: I was SO excited to try this tea. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! This tea had a tart taste, It was very different and I really loved it. My husband tried it and didn’t care for it too much, I guess it just depends on your palate. This tea is tart with a touch of sweetness. Hibiscus is the base to this tea and it’s packed with vitamin C, one of the worlds most powerful antioxidants.
Peppermint Rose: This tea has the taste and the function. Peppermint is so refreshing and stimulating. It is also effective for nausea. Chamomile is gentle and incredibly effective for stress relief and tension. Rose gives this a delicious flavor, and helps rid the body and blood of toxins.
Over all I had SO much fun trying these teas out. They were all delicious and healthy for me AND baby, since I am breastfeeding. All of these teas are caffeine free and help promote health for Momma and baby! I will continue using these teas!
You can purchase these teas and many more over here at: Our Sweet Earth.
All of these opinions were my own. I did receive these for free to review.
Now onto how this tea saved my butt. As most of you know I just had my son 3 short weeks ago. On Easter he was 10 days old. I had been breast feeding and everything was going swimmingly, until Easter.
Now most of you, who have breast fed, or maybe a few that have not may realize what a huge mistake I had made. In hindsight I want to kick myself for it, but maybe it was the lack of sleep, or the feeling of just pushing a tiny human out of my hoo-ha that made me feel invincible. I am not. I fudge stuff up quite regularly. Ask Amy, she will tell you. So- Easter. I had been pumping to build up my supply which I had enough saved for a few days… then this awful thought creeped into my head.
How about you just feed him what you already pumped on Easter.
I mean, it sounds good, right? No lugging a pump around. No throwing a blanket over to nurse while running to 4 dinners.
Do you know what happens when you don’t pump or nurse for 12 hours with a not even two week old baby? Well, I can only speak for myself, but the 4 ounces I was getting extra after feeding him turned into drops. Nothing.
So I started drinking Mother’s Milk Tea by Our Sweet Earth, the next day I saw an increase in my milk supply. Not only is this tea delicious, it helped me regain my sanity, and learn a life lesson without it being too painful. So THANK YOU Our Sweet Earth!
