GREEK MOUNTAIN TEA is unique in the world of herbal infusions. It is made from the dried flowers, leaves and stems of the native Greek Sideritis plant which grows throughout the mountainous regions of Greece at very high elevations – typically over 900 meters. This rather modest plant, with its tiny pale yellow flowers, is known for its high levels of antioxidants and contains large amounts of essential oils and a broad range of other phyto-nutrients. Go ahead and treat that cold with a good rest, a nutritious soup, and quite a few mugs of this natural “medicine”! The ancient Greek philosopher Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, hailed Greek Mountain Tea for its benefits to the immune system and the respiratory system. For thousands of years, Greek families have been drinking the tea because they believe it has an abundance of health benefits. Greek Mountain Tea is also known as Shepherds Tea, because Greek shepherds would use the herb to make tea while tending their flocks high in the mountains. It has a very special, distinct flavour, not to be compared with other (black-green-white) tea varieties. Its taste is surprisingly pleasant (especially compared to its smell while brewing!) and could be described as herbal- a-bit pepperminty- and quite lemon-y. Offers such a complexity of flavor! If you like your tea sweet, please, do consider a totally natural sweetener, such as one of our many wonderful Honeys. This choice will reward you even more!
