Why have I never heard of nettle tea?

I am obsessed with tea, thought I'd heard of most types by now.

Just to clarify; nettle is an herbal infusion and not an actual tea. Seems that anything infused with hot water is called "tea." We have on our website information about tea and several health studies regarding tea. visit us at Tealaden dot com

I've familiar with this. In college, I worked at this gourmet coffee place that also sold about 20 types of loose-leaf teas. Every now & then a customer would point out types to me, and say "Now you realize that isn't a real tea right? It's not from a tea leaf...". Kind of funny.

Regular tea, herbal "tea".. I drink it all.

Very funny, Mith ;)

Nice website, but I'm still none the wiser on how to make 'nettle infusion' properly :(

Lol, I have no idea, but that's how you make in an MMORPG. And it's listed as good for hangovers.

My batch tasted like spinach, and that's the last thing I want for a hangover.

4 hours to infuse! Well, if I find myself with a spare 4 hours and an ounce of nettles, I'll be sure to brew it up.

Happy to be the guinea pig, thanks for the link.
