If one is to get the most from this,as with nettle "tea" that you can buy here,one must make an infusion. Its like making tea,but you must allow it to sit for a minimum of 4 hours. Best to leave overnight. 1 OZ/28 grams of herb per quart/liter of water. I heat water to only 80C like making green tea. You get heaps more out of the herb if you infuse it. Ive proved it. You feel the difference. If you only allow 10 minutes,when you strain it,the dried milky tops have not dissolved properly. But an overnight infusion DOES even dissolve those. There is lots of goodness in those milky dried tops as well. This brand has "milky tops" and thats a good thing. It indicates it was picked at its best time in growth cycle.If something takes 6 months to grow,is it going to give up most of whats in it in 10 minutes? Dont think so. Try an infusion and see the difference it makes. The prices here are excellent and shipping to Australia is just the same as in Australia for the same thing. Bonza Mate!

Best dry nettle tea I've tried

I've used several different brands and this one smelled the freshest and seemed to have the most potent healing properties. I'm using it during my pregnancy and it has prevented anemia and fatigue because of the easily-assimilated iron content. A must-have for anyone looking for a nutritious, mild-tasting tea :)
Great tea - but do we have to buy so much at once!

Wow, this is a BIG bag of tea. Share with pregnant friends! This was WONDERFUL for my restless leg syndrome during pregnancy. the nettle tea bags just didnt' cut it - fresh is best. I often take a cup now when I'm just feeling a bit run down. It has a strong diuretic effect which can be useful - but it can make you need to get up in the middle of the night if you take it before bed. Mild taste, not unlike regular green tea, but less bitter. Highly recommended as a cheap way to improve nutrition, especially in pregnancy and breastfeeding, or for mild iron deficiency.
