Nettle Tea–Straight Up or With Flare
Nettles are very nourishing and blood building. They relieve toxins, hot flashes, allergies and anemia--a wonderful addition to the diet.
I brew up a large pan of nettle tea in the spring and leave it out on the counter to drink at room temperature. If you find the flavor of nettles a little boring try adding in a sprig of peppermint or lemon balm. Clara likes it mixed with blueberry tea.
