The tea consists of two ingredients - fennel and fenugreek seeds. Fennel seeds are sold at most grocery stores, but I had to hunt down the fenugreek seeds at a local health food store. Fennel is mainly a digestive aid and fenugreek helps to boost milk supply. The tea has a very mild flavor so if your palette wants something stronger you might punch it up a bit with some sliced ginger or lemon.
1 part fenugreek seeds
2 part fennel seeds
Mix seeds in a small jar with a lid. Shake the jar to distribute evenly. In a tea ball or filter place 1/2 teaspoon of the seed mixture and steep in a mug for 5-10 minutes.
I like to make a bigger batch in a thermos and drink it throughout the day. As far as I know, I haven't had any problems with my milk supply, but I figure it doesn't hurt to drink this tea instead of my usual mint or chamomile. Plus, I kind of feel like a mystical medicine woman making my own tea blend to boost my milk and help my baby. His chubby cheeks are a pretty good indication that I'm doing something right! Speaking of milk, it's time for him to eat again. Please excuse me while I get comfy with my boppy pillow, book, and mystical medicine woman tea. It's time to do my mommy job!
