Nettle is a common ingredient in folk medicine because of its high iron content and diuretic properties.

While usually consumed for health reasons, Nettle Leaf is a caffeine-free herbal tea that can also be enjoyed for its flavor — however it often doesn’t make a convert until the third or fourth try.

Its green leaves brew a vivid yellow cup that has a distinct aroma of damp hay and dandelion. The thick, herbaceous brew lingers in the upper palate with sweet, grassy notes that give way to savory, buttery tarragon.

How to use;
The basic method of hot infusion with dried herbs and flowers is- take 2-3 tablespoons of dried herbs in a teapot, pour hot water over it and cover for 10-30 minutes.
Hot water will draw out the anti-oxidants, enzymes, vitamins, flavonoids, and oils from the botanicals.
Sweeten your tea with honey, stevia leaves, or natural fruit juice.
