mother's milk tea... eek. :/

i have a feeling, just by the smell, that i am not going to like this tea. :/ what can i do to make it taste better, to avoid being completely ruined by the flavor?

You could add honey or sugar. I like it. I drink a pot per day. It really helps.

i was already thinking about adding sugar. man... i guess the only thing i can do is try it, and hope that the smell is more off-putting than the taste.

I wasn't a fan of the taste either, just the smell of fennel turns me off.
I used to brew it with some camomile tea at the same time, use a little sweetener (honey, sugar, agave nectar...any worked) and then drink it iced. It wasn't as bad that way.

So maybe try brewing it with a flavored tea that you do like? Hth.

Not the same but I add a capful of lemon juice, 1 sugar cube, and some local raw honey to my third trimester tea to spruce it up. Sometimes I steep it with peach tea for a different flavor.

okay, i may totally regret this... BUT - i used one milk tea bag, and one chai tea bag. i am going to add sugar, and put a tiny bit of milk in it. hoping it just tastes like a funky chai tea latte, lol.

btw, how much of this crap do i need to drink a day? lol

They say 5 cups is what you should try to drink.
