Greek mountain tea
During the winter months, there’s no better way to end your day than the sweet, floral fragrance of Greek Mountain Tea coming out of a smoking hot teacup. This gorgeous flowering plant is our national herbal infusion, and it has been part of our diet since ancient times, mentioned by Greek Mythology as the food of the Titans. Packed with health benefits, it has been traditionally used as a healer by folk medicine for the treatment of inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders and common cold. Recent research shows that its extracts can enhance memory and learning, as scientists are studying the plant’s correlation to the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.
Mountain Tea flourishes on rocky slopes over 1.000 meters of altitude, with many mountains being home to little known, local varietals. The selection comes from a wonderful organic farm in Grevena. The 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. Stems leaves and flowers are equally fragrant and beneficial. Good quality Mountain Tea has a delicate, herbaceous flavour and is naturally caffeine-free. You’ll need 2 springs (1g) per tea cup, dosage on taste. With your fingers or with a pair of scissors, cut springs in 3cm / 1.5 inch pieces. Simmer for 5 minutes at 100C, covered. Strain and serve alone or with honey, warm or at room temperature.
