    Default milkmaid tea

    I am having a lot of trouble taking fenugreek (i can't swallow pills and the powder tastes HORRIBLE) and found milkmaid tea tonight. Has anyone tried it? If so, how much should I drink and does it work?

    I drink milkmaid tea, but I have the loose version (not in teabags). I don't know if it comes that way anymore. Anyway-it also has fennel and a bunch of other herbs (anise and peppermint are two) which masks the fenugreek, and I think it tastes and smells pretty good. Maybe someone else will chime in on amounts, but I only drink it max once/day. I know if you drink a lot of it, your pee will smell like molasses or something

    I think this is what you want to have happen if you are trying to up your supply with fenugreek

    Could you mix it into oatmeal or something?

    Ah, I see. I never needed to up my supply too much, but sometimes I needed a little boost

    I just went and looked at my jar, and it says to drink it 2-3 times a day.

    Is this the stuff you found?

    Yes that is the one that i found. it definitely tastes better than the fenugreek powder. I didn't even think about trying it in oatmeal. It may help mask the taste better, the fenugreek overpowers everything i mix it with. Thanks everyone!
