Miriam, congratulations!!!

To make herbal infusions you need an ounce of herb per quart, so a 1/4 ounce of herb for 8 ounce, cup, of water. This is about 7 grams then. Remember though that the herb is also infused in water for at least 4 hours before drinking.

Four cups is not too much at all, if this is what you enjoy, wonderful!!

Hi I am 45 years old and just found out I am pregnant.....teehee, surprise. We have 3 boys, 8, 5, 2. I started drinking Raspberry Leaf tea, 4 cups a day and noticed that the quantites of herbs in the various tea bags I had in the cabinet were all different. What is a recommended gram amount I should have per cup, 8oz of water? These tea bags varied as much as 2grams to 1.2 grams. Is 4 cups too much? it felt like it was the right amount to me. Cheers, Miriam
