This extraordinary plant’s comforting, mellow, honey-scented sprigs make a delicate herbal infusion ideal for any time of the day. It takes one hour to assemble just 15 bouquets.
Good quality Mountain Tea has a delicate, herbaceous flavor that reminds of honey. It is naturally caffeine-free. It flourishes on rocky slopes over 1.000 meters, and many Greek mountains are home to little-known, local varieties. This selection comes from a beautiful organic farm near Grevena in Northern Greece. The supplier was among the first to cultivate the green and purple-hued variety of the area, which has a significantly higher concentration of flavonoids, antioxidants, and phenolic content than its commercially available rivals.
Answering to the Latin name Sideritis, this herb was, in the past, a traditional folk remedy used to boost the immune system and aid the body against all sorts of ailments. Recent research shows that long-term use is highly beneficial for the organism, and its extracts can enhance memory and learning.
Use all parts of the plant. You’ll need 1 tsp (approximately 1g) per 250 ml cup, dosage on taste. Brew for 4-5 minutes at 95°C, covered. Strain and serve.
For optimal quality, place your bouquet in a long pasta jar or any airtight container. Properly storing your herbs is very important as it expands their life span. Avoid direct sunlight and humidity.
