Ugh. I ran out of my homegrown nettles and purchased some from the local health food store. I believe they get theirs from Frontier and I have to say, the taste is NOTHING like the previous batches. If this were my first experience with nettles, I don't think I'd like it very much.
In their defense, this has steeped longer than 8 hours, probably more like 12 hours but still, I've over steeped the stuff growing in my backyard several times and the taste wasn't even close to this.
Just goes to show, try several sources because not all plant sources taste the same!
