During the winter months, there’s no better way to end your day than the earthy, floral fragrance of Greek Mountain Tea coming out of a smoking hot teacup. This gorgeous plant is our national herbal infusion, and it’s been part of our diet since ancient times, mentioned by Greek Mythology as the food of the Titans. It’s been traditionally used as a folk remedy for inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders, and the common cold. Recent research shows that its extracts can enhance memory and learning, plus it’s packed with antioxidants!
Sourcing: Mountain Tea flourishes on rocky slopes over 1.000 meters of altitude, with many mountains being home to little known, local varietals. Our selection comes from a wonderful organic farm in Grevena. Our supplier was among the first to cultivate the gorgeous, 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.
How to Use: Use all parts of the plant. Good quality Mountain Tea has a delicate, herbaceous flavor and is naturally caffeine-free. You’ll need 2 springs (1g) per cup, dosage on taste. Simmer for 5-6 minutes at 100C, covered. Strain and serve alone or with honey, warm or at room temperature.
