Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Nettle Leaf Tea can be made into a hot herbal drink by infusing the herb in boiling water. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.


Use 1 - 3 tsp nettle leaf per 1 cup of boiling water 3 times a day.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

I ordered this and Eyebright leaf tea to help with my hayfever which hasn’t been a problem for years but for some reason has come back with a vengeance this year? I combine these and drink one cup every morning and it really helps with the sneezing and itchy eyes. Great service and product. I would definitely buy again.

Delicious, surprisingly like green tea. I make a detox-style blend with dandelion leaf and it tastes amazing! Very impressed.

Writing as a long term customer, the nettle tea is now better than it was a while ago, when it contained more stalk than leaf, BUT, disappointed to see the packaging has now swapped from paper to plastic bags, which, unless I am mistaken, are non-biodegradeable.
