I can't describe it, other than to say it isn't generally bad (though I recall one brand , not sure which, was hideous). I must have drunk a lot because over 3 years later I can still taste it on the back of my tongue!
I still don't really know if I did it right at all, ButteryJam. I think I did both but I can't be too sure have blocked out the memory
I did it daily, for about 5 mins, from about 36/7 weeks but only until about 38.5 or 39 weeks. I really just could not reach after that, and I went into labour at 39 +5.
Just checked the brand of tea I have left, and it's called 'Health and Healthier', which came in teabags. I can't find a link to it. But I think I mostly used a loose-leaf tea, can't remember what that one was called. Any health store should have it, just ask. And yes, I think capsules do the exact same job.
