Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 quart water
  • 1/4-1/2 cup stinging nettles dried
  • 2 Tbsp spearmint leaf optional; dried
Instructions
  1. Heat kettle on the stove to just below a boil.

  2. In the meantime, place dried herbs in a quart jar.

  3. Pour hot water over the leaves, cap, and place in the fridge to steep for at least 4 hours [but it could be overnight]. 

  4. Once steeping is finished, strain tea through fine mesh sieve. You can either heat up and enjoy as a hot tea or simply enjoy as a cold beverage.

  5. Tip: You can also do a cold infusion by pouring COLD water over the loose leaf tea in your jar. Allow the jar to steep in the fridge for about 8 hours minimum to enjoy a full extraction.
