Taste notes Nettle tea

How strong is nettle tea?​

Nettle tea is unique in its strength and versatility. The strength of the tea can easily be adjusted to your personal preference. Let the tea steep for a shorter time for a milder effect or longer for a stronger, more pronounced taste. Our nettle tea retains its mild, fresh character even when steeped for longer, minimizing the risk of a bitter taste. This makes it a perfect choice for both new and experienced tea drinkers.

How strong is nettle tea?

For the perfect cup of nettle tea, start with fresh or dried nettle leaves. Use hot, but not boiling, water to retain the delicate flavors and nutrients. Let the tea steep for three to five minutes for a light and refreshing taste, or a little longer if you're looking for a more powerful effect. Our nettle tea is versatile and can be enjoyed hot or cold, making it ideal for any season and occasion.

Kirsten's Tip

An interesting way to use nettle tea is to integrate it into your skin care routine. Make a facial steam bath with nettle tea to purify and revitalize your skin. The steam opens your pores while the nettle releases its cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties. This can help make your skin brighter and fresher.

Health benefits of nettle tea

Stinging nettle is extremely healthy and is packed with vitamins and minerals. It also has a purifying effect on the human body.

The following is an explanation of the valuable elements and associated properties that nettle contains:

  • Vit. B1: energy supply and beneficial for the nervous system and heart
  • Vit. B2: energy supply
  • Vit. B5: energy supply and construction and breakdown of proteins and fats
  • Vit. B11 (folic acid): production of red and white blood cells
  • Vit. A: good for growth and skin, hair, nails and eyes
  • Vit. C: strengthens immune system and increases absorption of iron from food
  • Vit. E: regulates metabolism
  • Vit. K: regulates blood clotting

Minerals: iron, silicon, calcium, potassium, boron, sodium, copper, magnesium, zinc, sulfur, manganese, chromium and certain nitrates.

We highlight a number of important minerals:

Iron is an important element in red blood cells. The red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body. With an iron deficiency, this does not function properly, which can lead to fatigue.

Calcium is important for building bones and keeping them strong and healthy.

Sodium and potassium are important for maintaining fluid balance and blood pressure.

Magnesium  is essential for the proper transmission of nerve impulses and the control, formation and functioning of muscles.

Stinging nettle has a positive effect on benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and urinary tract infections.

The most recognized health benefit of using nettles is its positive effect against benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as an enlarged prostate and urinary tract infections. Clinical studies indicate that nettles contain components that affect the hormones responsible for BPH. (source: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov /11509966/)

Stinging nettle helps relieve osteoarthritis and joint pain

Research shows that nettles help relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint pain, usually in the case of pain in hands, knees, hips and spine. Nettles even work in combination with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which can reduce the use of NSAIDs. Stewed nettle leaves were used for the research. Further research must show whether this also applies to nettle tea. (source: https://www.ncbi.nlm .nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6100552/)
