With many of our medicinal teas we start with a broad answer to the issue at hand. Over time, as more people discover the tea, I will start getting asked questions about specific issues or conditions or facets of a larger problem. This causes me to research, oftentimes taking a day to familiarize myself with the known reasons and issues, and the current treatment modalities in Western Medicine – in order to figure out how they work, and what interactions with herbs there may be.
Without fail, one of these questions will end up making me decide we need another tea.
Our ‘New Hope’ was designed as a general fertility tea, and continues to be one of our most popular. However, there are a few health conditions that cause infertility that need different answers. One of these is PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). After doing my normal burst research, I discovered that it is far more common than I would have expected, and seemed incredibly frustrating to deal with. While I was working on looking deeper into some of the herbs, I received a second request for assistance with this particular condition.
When all was said and done, it turned out to be one of our most colourful and attractive teas, as well as having a pleasant flavour, and having the right ingredients to help with the symptoms of PCOS that lead to infertility.
