This organic nettle leaf is harvested from large, deep-rooted stands in Europe and infuses into a tea that is dark and rich in flavor. The leaves can be steeped as nettle tea, incorporated into herbal infusion blends, and added to soups and broths.
Nettle has been used worldwide for centuries in a variety of countries and cultures. It has been eaten as a wild food plant, applied topically to the skin, and drunk as an herbal tea. It was used extensively for its fibers and was woven into cloth. Nettle fibers were considered to be high quality and comparable to flax or hemp in Northern Europe. Nettle supports healthy urinary function and has mild diuretic action and helps to maintain upper respiratory health.
