Are there any alternate ways to ingest Raspberry leaf tea? Can I bake it into cookies or cake or something?
I know I can go buy tablets but I’ve already got a nice big packet of loose leaf tea and despite drinking my body weight in various teas most days for the last seven months I’ve suddenly gone off all tea entirely.

not sure but wouldnt cooking it make it lose the vitamin content or whatever?

You could smoke it?
Haha just kidding!!
Not funny. I'm not sure. Perhaps in recipes where you can use tea substitute it for your Raspberry leaf. Like a raspberry leaf tea cake?

You could grind it if you have a grinder and mix it with honey and spread it on your toast.
Tea is way easier.

I used to let the tea cool and add heaps of honey. I'm not usually a tea drinker. it became bearable the more I had it. I would only make it about 1/2 a mug size

I started off making the raspberry leaf tea like an ordinary cup of tea - ie nice big mug, nice and hot, sip it while at my desk etc. Anyway, I like tea and herbal teas but found it hard work getting through 3 cups a day of raspberry leaf as it isn't IMO overly tasty. I don't think it will ever take off as a new popular tea flavour for non-pregnant people.
So instead I would put the teabag into a small teacup of boiling water and leave it to "steep" for a while, to get as much out of the teabag as possible.
When it had cooled to lukewarm I would drink it down in a couple of big sips.
I found it easy to get through 2 or 3 cups a day like this. I drank gallons of the stuff with my first pregnancy but ended up having an emergency c-section. I have since had 2 more c-sections so didn't bother with it again. However when I was pregnant for the first time I did read quite a bit of positve stuff about it so I think definitely worth a try.

i do tablets, the tea is horrid (although mixing it with mint of some description hides the worst of it)

Thanks for the ideas – I keep hearing that other people don’t like the taste. I honestly like it mind the taste at all, I have just gone off all types of tea.
I think the let it cool and drink it cold water might be the way to go.

I had heard that RL was great at the end of pregnancy, and yesterday at my midwife appointment (35w) the midwife suggested i start RL and i just didnt ask her more questions.
So my question is what does it help with? Can i buy tablets? I am struggling keeping up my water intake, so adding another fluid into my diet would not work.
