Finely chop four heaped teaspoons of fresh nettle. Boil four cups of filtered water and remove from the heat. Add the nettle to the water and steep for 20 minutes with the lid on. Drink hot or cold.
You can also tie up your bundles of fresh nettle to dry, and enjoy nettle tea all spring long. Use 1 teaspoon dry tea to ounces water to make a strong, invigorating cup.
