As the days grow warmer, there's nothing quite like a refreshing glass of iced tea to quench your thirst.

But why settle for ordinary when you can elevate your tea experience with the health benefits of Organic Nettle?

Our Organic Nettle Leaf tea, a staple in herbal medicine, is not just a beverage but a potent source of nutrients. Rich in vitamins A, C, K, and B, iron and calcium; nettle tea offers a unique blend of health benefits.

It's commonly known for its anti-inflammatory properties, ability to support urinary tract health, and its role in alleviating allergy symptoms.

When combined with the zesty freshness of lime, this Lime and Nettle Iced Tea becomes more than just a drink – it's a revitalising tonic that's perfect for those hot summer days.

 

Lime and Nettle Iced Tea

Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes
Brewing Time: 
3-4 minutes
Servings: 
4

Ingredients:

  • 4 bags of Planet Organic Nettle Tea
  • 4 cups of boiling water
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Lime slices for garnish
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional to muddle and garnish)
  • Honey or agave syrup, to taste
  • Ice cubes

 

Method:

  1. Steep the Tea: Begin by steeping the nettle tea bags in boiling water. Allow them to infuse for 3-5 minutes to extract the full flavour and benefits.

  2. Cool and Flavour: Remove the tea bags and let the tea cool to room temperature. Once cooled, add the fresh lime juice. Stir well to combine the flavours.

  3. Sweeten to Taste: If you prefer a sweeter drink, add honey or agave syrup to your liking. Stir until the sweetener is fully dissolved.

  4. Chill: Refrigerate the tea for around an hour or until it's thoroughly chilled. Or speed this up by adding ice to your brew.

  5. Serve: Fill glasses with ice cubes. Pour the chilled nettle and lime tea over the ice. Garnish with lime slices and, if desired, a few fresh mint leaves for an extra refreshing touch.

  6. Enjoy: Stir gently and enjoy the invigorating blend of nettle's herbal notes and the tangy kick of lime.

 

This Lime and Nettle Iced Tea is not just a delightful summer beverage but a healthy alternative to flavoured or sugary drinks, that supports your well-being with every sip.

Enjoy it during the warm days, knowing you're nourishing your body with the natural goodness of organic nettle.
