 The Mother's Pure, Organic, Raspberry Leaf Tea is an ideal beverage for reproductive women, athletes, the elderly,
anyone in recovery, teenagers and children.

Men in mid-life crisis, with exhausted adrenals, and dieters are well-advised to drink soothing, refreshing Mother Tea, hot or cold, several times a day.   Rinse your teapot with hot water, add a handful of organic, air-dried Mother Tea, and water brought just to a boil, let steep twelve minutes. Milk is not generally added, although honey, lemon, and mint have, in adventurous households. Most of us enjoy it beautifully plain. If you intend to keep it overnight it is best to store it in your refrigerator.  

Cloth diapers are not the same as they were 20 years ago.  Now modern cloth diapers and diaper covers are stylish, economical, and environmentally friendly.  Check out these great cloth diapers and organic baby clothes here today!

Mother Tea Popsicles are a delight not to be missed in this lifetime. Simply pour cooled tea into an ice-cube tray and remove when frozen.

Besides being consumed regularly during pregnancy, women often drink raspberry tea during labor. This is because raspberry leaves contain an alkaloid called fragarine, which is said to make labor easier due to its effectiveness as a tonic for the pelvic muscles and uterus.

When taken after birthing, raspberry tea facilitates placental delivery, helps decrease uterine swelling, and helps prevent postpartum bleeding. Drinking raspberry tea until the time of birthing is so nutritious, it helps to ensure that the colostrum (the first breast milk) will be especially rich. However, it is not used excessively during lactation due to its astringent properties that can decrease milk supply.

When menopausal women use raspberry leaf, it helps promote healthy uterine tone and minimize hot flashes.

Henry Box, an English Quaker herbalist, said, A tea made from red raspberry leaves is the best gift God gave to women. Now, that might be exaggerating things a bit, but it does show great appreciation for such a versatile herb.

     An old Latin saying tells of this herb: "Let it be awarded to the fairest of these womankind." Women, especially, benefit from the herb's normalizing properities. Tea conoisseurs will be surprised by the robust and distinctive taste of Raspberry leaf. Reminiscent of fine imported black teas, its deep amber color and full-bodied flavor will please the most discriminating tea drinkers.
     The raspberry plant is best known for its luscious red berries, with their fragrant, cooling and succulent taste. The leaves of this widely cultivated shrub are also valuable. They are best harvested in the spring, just before the flowers mature.

The Tall and the Short of It

If you are curious how tall your child might get to try this new formula:
For boys take their three year old height in centimeters, multiply it by 1.29, and then add 54.9 cm. For girls, the calculation is the same, but add only 43.3 cm.

At Least They Tried

The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild amid cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later they were both eaten by a killer whale.

"Among the teachings of Baha'u'llah is one requiring man, under all conditions and circumstances, to be forgiving, to love his enemy and to consider an ill-wisher as a well-wisher.  Not that he should consider one as being an enemy and then put up with him, or to simply
endure him, or to consider one as inimical and be forebearing towards
...Nay, rather, you must see your enemies as friends, ill-wishers as
well-wishers and treat them accordingly.  That is to say, your love and kindness must be real."
(Abdu'l-Baha, quoted in "Star of the West",
Vol IV, No.11, p. 191)

My first bale of The Tea lasted through most of my pregnancy. My four-year-old son, who just weaned, and I, absolutely loved it. I ran out in my ninth month and got some from the bulk food store. It wasn't the same; I had to throw it out. I was amazed at the difference. Send another bale quick.

Rinse your teapot with hot water, and empty it. Add a handful of organic, air-dried in the dark Mother Tea leaves. Cover with boiling water, and let steep ten minutes. If you just want to make a cup, use one teaspoon of our leaves. The Mother Tea is precious hot or cold; if you intend to keep it overnight, it is best stored in the refrigerator.

Iced Mother Tea is delicious plain, with ice, a slice of lemon and a dash of brown sugar.

The Mother Tea Popsicles are a delight not to be missed in this lifetime. Simply pour cooled tea into an ice-cube tray and remove when frozen. Please let us know of your experiences with The Mother Tea.

Pliny the Elder first wrote about Rubus Idaeus, around 50 A.D. The Roman scholar and author of 37 books made mention of "raspberry leaf tea that is famous, soothing and aromatic, best known as a curer of problems connected with women: frigidity, menstrual discomfort, labour pains and difficult menopause."

The Ojibwa Indians understood the value of raspberry leaf tea also. They knew it helped mothers have a healthy pregnancy, quick labour, a strong baby and breastfeeding success. Today, raspberry leaves are notable partus preaparaturae, and can be freely recommended throughout pregnancy, during birth,and while breastfeeding.

Store your tea in a tin or glass container, in your refrigerator, if you have room, or in a cupboard. Large amounts keep very well in a freezer.

The Mother Tea contains potassium (441 ppm.), calcium (121 ppm.), magnesium (93 ppm.) and the important trace minerals, magnesium, zinc, iron and chromium.

The Mother Tea is a gentle, soothing drink, morning, noon and night. It is appreciated by pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, athletes, people under stress, children, teenagers, the elderly and anyone in recovery.
