Just about describes it's taste perfectly. If I hadn't experienced the wonders of nettle and raspberry leaf infusion during Chase's pregnancy, I wouldn't be touching the stuff. But here it is and here I am, not anemic (was during the first 4 pregnancies), chugging my heavily sugared cup every morning to make my midwife proud. I also did not bleed heavily after Chase's birth, which seemed to be a real enough concern for my previous physicians in that they pumped me full of pitocin following birth. Their theory, or experience, was that redheads bleed more.
Benefits of bothherbs can be read here. I highly recommend making an infusion of the two together, with a generous helping of sugar or honey to slide you past it's lesser qualities and, of course, I'm not a midwife, so consult yours before indulging. :)
