Description

Good quality Mountain Tea has a delicate, herbaceous flavor and is naturally caffeine-free. Use all parts of the plant.  You’ll need 2-3 springs (1g) per cup, dosage on taste. Simmer for 5mins at 95C, covered. Strain and serve warm or at room temperature.

Mountain Tea flourishes on rocky slopes over 1.000 meters of altitude, with many Greek mountains being home to little known, local varietals. Our selection comes from a beautiful organic farm in Grevena. Our supplier was among the first to cultivate the green and purple-hued variety of the area, which has a significantly higher concentration in flavonoids, antioxidants, and phenolic content than its commercially available rivals.

Answering the Latin name Sideritis, this herb has traditionally served as a folk remedy for inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders, and the common cold. Recent research shows that its extracts can enhance memory and learning.
