I know that there are concerns with harvesting stinging nettle over knee high for comsumption as greens. My question is: Are there concerns with using the leaves from adult nettle plants for making tea? If so, what are these concerns?

there shouldn't be. my understanding is that silica is involved, which I don't believe is water soluble.
