Freshly harvested nettles!

 

Yes, to be clear. To be open and moving and free. These are the qualities this tea brings in as our bodies awake from their winter stagnation.  Nettles, dandelion and cleavers are all supporting our bodies to flush out the old and make way for the new. These spring weeds, plus alfalfa, make a mineral packed powerhouse of spring time energy.  Holy basil (tied with nettles for first place as my favorite herb) is the great balancer in a group of plants known as adaptogens. Adaptogens support our bodies to adapt to stress of any kind (even the simple stress of a change of season). It also supports immune and respiratory function and sharpens memory.  The sage helps clear out the sinuses and the licorice enhances the action of all the other herbs, plus adds its silky sweetness to balance all that green vitality. Yum.

Suggested Use:

Steep 1 Tbsp per cup of hot water for 20+ minutes, covered. The longer it is steeped, the more minerals are extracted. You can even let it steep overnight.

Ingredients: nettles, alfalfa, tulsi (holy basil), dandelion leaf, cleavers, sage, licorice (licorice is optional).
