Foraged hand made nettle tea
Freshly foraged nettle tea, collect nettles and hang them up to dry somewhere warm. When you pick the nettles is important, here is a great article about the best times to harvest:
Once crispy dry rub them between gloved hands. Once they're broken up a bit they don't sting anymore. Store in an air tight jar.
To make the tea put a tablespoon in a small pot which is enough for two small mugs. You can also add a few mint leaves and leave for approx 15 mins. Then strain ( It is pretty potent after just a few minutes if you don't want to wait)
