I seem to have been quite adventurous in the herbal department and have tried some truly frightening teas lately. Nettle leaves. Both the wet leaves and resulting infusion have a revolting earthy, wet grass aroma – which tell you that what you are about to drink must be incredibly good for you. The flavour itself is surprisngly mild and slightly astringent. The real kicker is the aftertaste though, which I had to get rid of by gargling some ginger root. The note I jotted down about this tea simply says “Bad. So bad”.
I’d consume this for health reasons only, but how badly do you want the so-called health benefits from this? Blergh!

Are the health benefits supposed to be much greater than say a nice tasting green tea?

LiberTEAS

Nettle is good for allergies, as it helps reduce inflammation and helps relieve the symptoms associated with allergies. It is also good for high blood pressure, and helps to boost the immune system. If you really want the health benefits of nettle, I recommend brewing it as part of a blend… that way you won’t taste the nettle (or the other components of the blend will help counteract the offending flavor of the nettle) but you’ll still get the benefits of it.

Miss Sweet

Hmm interesting. I did figure this one would be better in a blend, its quite bad on its own!

LiberTEAS

I use Nettle in my allergi-TEA blend. Mostly, what you taste in this blend is the peppermint.

Is there is specific tea/blend that is considered to be the healthiest of all?
