  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp dried nettle leaves


  • Bring water to boil in a small saucepan.
  • Add dried nettle leaves
  • Cover and allow to steep at least 4 hours, and up to 8 hours.


Using fresh nettle leaves: If you are lucky enough to be able to source fresh nettles, you can use approximately 1/4 cup and steep for a bit less time if desired.
Drinking hot vs. cold: This is purely a personal preference. I prefer warm tea so re-heat before drinking. Some people prefer cooled tea, or even iced tea.
Sweetener: I drink my infusion unsweetened, but you can add raw honey, maple syrup, or other suitable sweetener if you prefer.
You can also add another herb for flavor, such as peppermint, spearmint, ginger, etc.
