Super Iced Tea
This is one of my favorite beverages right now! Red raspberry leaf and stinging nettle are packed with vitamins and minerals that make them super foods for our health. So nourishing for the prenatal and postpartum season and a superfood for everyone’s health! Here are some of the benefits of these two herbs:
Red Raspberry leaf tea:
-Helps shorten labor and results in fewer medical interventions, including cesarean. -Additionally, the uterus needs a lot of vitamins and minerals to function properly and red raspberry leaf tea offers a great profile of them. Red raspberry leaf is rich in vitamins and minerals, containing vitamins C, and certain antioxidants. One of those antioxidants is called "rutin" which helps to reduce inflammation.
-Red raspberry leaf tea is not exclusively for women! It is great for men's prostate health and has been shown to lower unhealthy blood pressure and blood sugar levels, as well as to treat acne, adrenal fatigue, sore throat, canker sores, and colds, and fevers.
Stinging Nettle tea:
-Highly nutritious, rich in many minerals, like iron, magnesium, Vitamin A, C, K and B Vitamins .
-Anti-histamine properties effective in treating asthma, eczema, and joint pain.
-Also studies are showing nettles help to lower blood pressure, blood sugar, and reduce enlarged prostate. 
2 Tbsp. Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
2 Tbsp. Stinging Nettle Tea
*I love to source my teas in bulk from Frontier Coop
1 Quart Boiling Water
4 Tbsp. Lemon juice
Organic Stevia or Raw Honey to taste
Add teas to mason jar or French press. Allow to steep for minimum of 15-20. (I often let mine go for around an hour. The longer it steeps the more I dilute it and the further this batch of tea goes!)
Pour tea into open container (I use a large measuring cup) and cool in the fridge.
Once tea is cooled, pour it into a gallon jar and dilute it about 50% with cold water and ice cubes. Add lemon juice and sweetener.
Serve and enjoy!
