As an allergy sufferer, I really have to thank Bonnie for this sample! I used to drink (bagged) nettle tea before moving to California as my hay fever would always get the best of me. Well, since I moving away from my adoptive home, I’m in need of some relief – and BAD! The attacks I have in Indiana have hit me like a ton of bricks. An allergist appointment is in the future to receive shots to help me combat the effects of nature.
Anyway, this nettle tea is fantastic! I remember the bagged version never tasting nearly this good – I always had to choke it down! But Butiki’s version is really wonderful. The artichoke taste is really something I can get behind too! Artichokes are kind of expensive here, and I used to eat them all the time in Cally-land. So between helping lessen the effects of allergies and the fond memories of eating artichokes, I think we have a real winner here!
I only used one Blue Nettle cigar for about 3 or 4 ounces and resteeped. Looking forward to Amy oh’s way of cold brewing these bad boys too! This is going to be a daily drink.
Just placed a Butiki order and included the largest package of this offered. Hopefully I can ration out what Bonnie sent me until it arrives! :)
