As an herbal tea, nettle holds up very well in the cup, offering herbaceous notes that are superb either on their own or with a dash of honey. Nettles can be brewed the way you would any herbal or loose-leaf tea, then strained into the cup before drinking. And in case you're wondering, no, the tea doesn't sting! Enjoy the sweet nectar of nature today.
HOT BREWING METHOD: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
