Organic Mountain Tea On The Stem from Greece


Greek mountain tea is made from freshly handpicked herbs from the foothills of Mount Taygetus located in Southern Peloponnese. It is available mostly in dried form in health food stores and some grocery stores. It is know to help with digestive health and contains natural antioxidants. These plants have anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-spasmodic properties.

Brewing Greek Mountain Tea

When brewing Greek mountain tea, you can use the flowers, stem and leaves of the plant. Add about 2 tablespoons into a teapot and fill with boiling water, letting it steep for 5-10 minutes. You can add honey as well as milk or lemon to flavor the tea. Greek mountain tea has a very distinctive earthy taste and if you use the flowers, a slight floral scent.
