Third was born on Thursday and we are both back home and doing well. He was a big baby – 10 lbs 5 oz – but the delivery went quickly and with no complications. I’m feeling sore still, but I’m healing well and my Mom will be here for the next week to help out. I tend to be exhausted and emotional during pregnancy, but immediately start feeling better once the baby is born, so I am very glad to no longer be pregnant. And, as an added bonus, tea and food are appealing again. Life is pretty good.
I drank this tea with meals a couple of times at the hospital. I thought it would be an ordinary Chamomile, and might not have picked it if I’d known it was a blend. Chamomile is very easy to overwhelm in a blend, and far too many of them contain mint, which I like on its own, but not blended with Chamomile. This was pretty good, though. The chamomile came through nice and strong, with a subtle orange spice flavor as well. I recommend a shorter steep time, though. The second time I drank this I let it steep a while and could taste the licorice root, which I don’t particularly care for. I probably won’t go out and buy this, but I appreciated the chance to try it and wouldn’t turn down another cup if it was an option offered by a friend or a restaurant.
