This might be why I like it so much.

I read something interesting at the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine...Michael Moore's school. He shared a list of plants that are best as a COLD Infusion
http://www.swsbm.com/ManualsMM/CldInfus.txt Nettle, Urtica dioica, third from the bottom.
Nettle is also found on the Standard Infusion list

I think it is partly a matter of readjusting our sense of taste. The average American diet Abhors bitters, Any food that isn't sweet or salty is considered bland.
