This has a strong grassy taste however very good for your skin, hair and teeth etc.  I also mix it with horsetail and spray on my hair daily to help new growth.  It works!  (I also add bamboo tea to the mixture as it is naturally high in silica.)  I am waiting for Shanti to stock bamboo tea so that I can keep my suppliers limited to hopefully 1 or 2.

Nettle is one of my favourite herbal infusions. It very good for the immune system and seems to help build some resistance against allergies and colds. I love it as a bedtime infusion. I would definitely recommend it. smile

Urtica dioica - Also known as Stinging Nettle is an absolutely amazing anti-inflammatory used in traditional medicine but is also clinically known to aid kidney and urinary tract disorders,  reduce hemorrhaging and flu symptoms as well as an excellent remedy for sensitive scalp issues. As an aside, Urtica dioica, is a wasteland species. You can find it in rural Ontario, overgrown fields and ditches. A word to the wise if you are wild-harvesting, wear gloves. However, fresh Stinging Nettles when applied to sites of arthritis provide a great deal of relief. For tea or drying, soak the leaves and stems in COLD water for 5-7 minutes (up to 10). This neutralizes the oxalic acid which causes the stinging and can then be used without the pain. Be sure to collect from non-contaminated soil.

If you are of the adventurous type, travel to England and join a Stinging Nettle Eating Contest.

I mix nettle tea with other mineral rich teas and make an infusion (let sit over night). I drink this throughout my work day and have great energy.

I tried a sample of nettle, wary of the taste of herbs, in order to add something else with iron to my daily intake. Nettle is actually quite nice! It has a pleasant, sweet, grassy taste. It is pretty light in flavour actually. I know drinking nettle tea has several benefits, if you are considering trying it out I would recommend it smile
