Seems prickly at first, but truly nurturing and supportive.
A traditional spring tonic—known to support joint health.*
Reason to Love
Although it might seem off-putting at first—what with the prickly sting and all—once you’ve become friends with nettle you’ve got a friend for life. A tonic, often drunk in the spring when nettle’s pokey presence is prevalent, we love nettle’s green, hay-like taste nearly as much as we love its ability to support the whole body.*
Pleasantly refreshing, hay-like and slightly bitter.
Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over 1 tea bag.
Cover cup & Steep for 10 minutes.
Squeeze tea bag to ensure maximum goodness in your cup.
Enjoy 3-4 cups daily.
Walentyna is just one of the many wild collectors who gathers our stinging nettle by hand (without gloves!). Typically, she rides her bike into the fields near her home in a small town in Poland. She finds a good spot and strolls through the meadows gathering nettle. She strips the leaves off the stem, then brings them to her home where she carefully dries them in her attic—a clean, dry place specifically used for herbs. She is part of a collector network that has been using the premiums they earn from wild collection to improve their quality of life.
