so i realized how much pregancy and mothers milk teas are and how much you should drink them... 16 bags for $5... recommended 2-3 cups a day... thats a lot.  so i found online they sell the herbs in bulk... i have 1 lb of pregnancy tea herbs, 1 lbs of mothers milk tea herbs and a mesh tea infuser in the cart... just under $60 + shipping.

im 31 weeks... im planning on drinking a lot more of the pregnancy tea (im trying for a vbac, i like the taste... why not right?) and i will be returning to work when lo is only 2 months and i'll be pumping (and im scared!!)

so... talk me into it!!! (its a big one time payment, thats whats freaking me out...)

Hey if you like it and will use it, I would do it.  Tea can get spendy!

seriously, im usually really cheap with stuff, but i like tea and if it can also help with all this, well, im down haha.  i could be spending the money on worse things (even though i was hoping to go on a mini shopping spree this weekend lol)

Why not search for the teas in bulk, to reduce the price?

Just to warn you if you've never tried that tea, it tastes very strongly of anise (black licorice). And IMO there's some sort of weird icky undertone to it. I choked down one cup and decided it wasn't worth it. (Full disclosure: I told my husband it was like drinking a hot cup of licorice flavored ass.) So... honestly, I would not invest much in it until you've tried it and know you can drink all of that.
