- Nettle Tea is one of my favorites. It's filled with vitamins, it's rich in scent, freshness and potency. If you like Nettles you'll love these nettles. If you've never had Nettles before you in for a mild tasting tea that doesn't get bitter and is one of natures best nutraceuticals (Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources that are purported to provide extra health benefits, in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foods). These Nettles contain protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, beta-carotene, along with vitamins A,C, D, and B complex, all in a form that is easy for the body to use.
- How to make a cup of Nettle Tea
Use a Your Favorite Cup and a Tea Strainer
I recommend adding a large pinch of Nettle to your strainer. Let it steep in very hot water for anywhere from 3 to 20 minutes. The longer the steeping time allows for more of the medicinal qualities of the Nettles to be released into the water.
