According to "Wildman" Steve Brill ( http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/ ), Nettle reportedly tastes very good with Catnip http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/v ... =12ndkfk4f. I've never tried it, but I read it in one of his books (which is really interesting, BTW).
Yeah, I love nettle but I've abstained from drinking it for a while because it's winter and the wild stuff hasn't come up yet. Ya'know, I'd prefer to get it local, and we've got a ton of slender nettle crowding a nearby pond. It's just so rich and green, though, isn't it? Like, much greener than green tea.
You can also use them like spinach leaves, but when I tried it it turned out horrible and I had to choke them down- they must have just been too mature, or something.
