After going through all that trouble of plucking stinging nettles, I wanted more than just one recipe out of it. So I set aside some of the leaves and brewed them to make tea.
Stinging nettle tea tasted like any other herbal tea, maybe with a slight vegetal taste. Not something I would crave unless I was in the mood for feeling healthy.
Stinging Nettle Tea
For one pot of tea, you'll need:
Handful of stinging nettle leaves, carefully washed and plucked
You could dry the leaves and save them to brew later, but I used fresh nettle leaves for my pot of tea.
And ummm, you do know how to brew a pot of tea, don't you? :)
Like my mismatched Wedgwood tea cup set? Well, the plate is Wedgwood, the cup was a remarkably similar color so if you don't look too closely, it works as a set. Both were thrift store finds.
