Another fantastic Thank You goes out to Earth Mama Angel Baby for letting me do another great review/giveaway & thank you to all of you wonderful readers who entered! :)
This is my 2nd review of Earth Mama Angel Baby. First time around I was sent some great products for my pregnancy and for baby once she arrives.
EMAB is focusing on herbs and breastfeeding herbs for June. Now that I am officially in my 3rd Trimester, Julie (a EMAB rep) was kind enough to send me their 3rd Trimester Tea to review!!
This tea along with Earth Mama Angel Baby's other teas are 100% Certified Organic. The tea is made with a blend of vitamin and mineral packed herbs that was formulated especially to nurture all those mama parts gearing up for the joyous arrival of our angel baby. Some of the great herbs included are red raspberry leaf (an all-around great pregnancy herb), iron-rich stinging nettle, calming chamomile and rosehips (both full of vitamins and bioflavonoids), and calcium filled oat straw.
My opinion of the tea?! AMAZING! Seriously... it's sooo delicious. I instantly brewed it once it came in the mail. 1 hour later... I had to have more.. it was that good. I really don't like any tea just plain so to this tea I even add a couple teaspoons of sugar and it is just perfect.
I even tweeted @BlogsMama_EMAB to make sure I wasn't drinking too much of it because I wanted more.
Earth Mama Angel Baby now has a twitter dedicated to our burning questions about their products (@EMAB_HQ) and they answered me saying that 3 cups/day was the perfect amount and I have definitely been using it up! When I'm stressed out or anything I just drink this tea and I feel relaxed and ready to go.
Red Raspberry Leaf is very beneficial to the uterine and pelvic muscles which explains why I feel more relaxed. Red Raspberry Leaf contains many minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C and calcium. It also contains an alkaloid called fragrine, which lends tone to the uterus. Studies have shown that if you drink one cup of tea per day in the 1st trimester and 2 cups in the 2nd trimester and switching to the infusion in the 3rd trimester it ensures a strong uterus, is good for you nutritionally and prevents miscarriage. Some say it is advised to not use it in the first trimester, particularly if you have a history of miscarriage so I'd always ask your Doctor first of course.
(just look at the herbs!!!)
You instantly smell all the wonderful herbs and how sweet they are. The aroma by itself makes you want to constantly drink it. The raspberry is the first thing you smell but it's not overwhelming or anything.
Like any tea, just simply pour hot water over the tea bag and let it steep for about 5 minutes (or shorter if you want a lighter taste) and enjoy!
Of course I love how this tea is organic and uncaffeinated so it's in no way harmful to baby.
Three... yes 3 readers will win a box of EMAB tea of your choice!!!
