Urtica dioica, an annual herb of the Urticaceae family, is the source of nettle leaf. Commonly referred to as "stinging nettle" because to the tingling sensation produced when touched by the hollow hairs found on the stem and leaves. Although nettles were formerly native to Europe, they are now a global phenomenon. They thrive in damp environments and soils. We source our organic nettle leaf from sprawling, long-established stands in Albania, a country where the majority of farmers use wild-crafted methods. The finest quality is ensured by a meticulous selection process that begins in the spring, when the plant is mature but not yet blooming.

Countless indigenous communities around the world have relied on nettle leaf for thousands of years. As well as being a popular herbal drink in Northern Europe, nettles were highly prized for their fibres, which could be spun into attractive fabric that resembled flax or hemp. The plants were also enjoyed as a wild culinary treat.

Numerous health benefits are associated with nettle leaf. It is a mild diuretic that promotes normal urine function. The health of your upper lungs will also benefit from it. Our Albania nettle leaf, when steeped in tea, has a robust, earthy flavour and a pleasant amber hue. It's an incredibly stimulating event. Among our organic North American nettles is one that is ideal for those seeking a milder flavour.

A dioecious plant, nettle leaf features delicate green leaves held aloft by a sturdy stalk of the same colour. An very serrated edge adorns every leaf. These stinging nettles have both stinging and nonstinging hairs covering them. When touched, these hairs, known as trichomes, release a distinct paresthesia. The incredible Urticaceae family is exemplified by Nettle Leaf, which offers an unrivalled journey of flavour and wellness.
