Tea Review: Nettle in the Kettle (Nepal Tea LLC)

Nettle in the Kettle
Nepal Tea LLC
Type: Herbal
Origin: Nepal, Kanchanjangha Tea Estate
Product Description: Considered a nutritive tonic, our nettle tea is solely made from organic stinging nettle leaves. A relaxing and detoxifying beverage.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 4 minutes

The dry leaf aroma has salty marine notes, as well as notes of seasoned wood and sweet oats.

The red-brown infusion has a sweet, spicy, earthy, and mossy aroma.  The taste is mellow, mildly earthy, and distinctly "nettle" with a long and intriguing caramelized sugar-like finish.

This was a good reminder that I do enjoy nettle tea.  It's mellow and the flavor holds up well throughout three steepings with none of the hard-to-ignore medicinal notes present in some other tisanes.  Note that the sample I reviewed was loose leaf and this tisane is currently only sold in tea bags. 

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
