Material from Nettle was split to Urtica on 16 August 2013. The former page's history now serves to provide attribution for that content in the latter page, and it must not be deleted so long as the latter page exists.

This version of the "Nettle" article was agreed on the talk page to be a mixture of information about plants with stinging hairs in general, the family Urticaceae, the genus Urtica and the species (and its subspecies) Urtica dioica. As part of sorting this out, I have converted this page to an article, with some new material, and some moved from "Nettle" and rewritten. Peter coxhead (talk) 17:02, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
In Germany, stinging nettles are drunk as tea. Common tea mixtures are with blackberry leaves, liquorice root and fennel, or with green tea (the latter called "Detox" by one company). Stinging nettle tea has the reputation of being healthy. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:07, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
