Making nettle tea is about as easy as falling off a log! You just take some nettle leaves,(fresh or dried),and boil them for at least a few minutes,pour off the juice, add sugar and drink it. I've tried it and I thought it was pretty good. You can use either stinging nettle,(opposite leaves), or wood nettle,(alternate leaves). jim d

what's nettle tea good for? Funnily enough, if you rub stinging nettle all over your body, it only stings on the places where you have toxins under your skin. The pain's quite nice after a while. Sort of.

Nettle tea is great for gout (pain in the big joints of the feet) I found it cleared my condition and now I drink it for a few days every couple of weeks. I use nettle tea bags from Holland & Barrett. About three cups per day. My gout has been gone for years now

I live in Hamburg and I see swathes of nettles cut down in the city's nature parks in summer - clearly by private persons - so they are either having wonderful sex or have dreadful gout or something.....

How do you know this isn't POISINESS or that they're the right sort of nettles or that a badger hasn't urinated on them ?
