Greek Organic Mountain Tea


Tea (tsai tou vounou)

This tea is enjoyed throughout Greece, not only for its mild, smooth, deliciously appealing flavour, but also for its health benefits. Known locally as Tsai Tou Vounou – meaning ‘Tea of the mountain’ -it is often gathered wild; the dried leaves and flowers of the Sideritis plants (ironwort) are infused with boiling water to produce a drink that is slightly earthy with floral notes and subtle notes with hints of citrus and mint.

It has traditionally used to aid digestion, strengthen the immune system and suppress common cold, the flu and other viruses, allergies and shortness of breath, sinus congestion; even pain and mild anxiety. This panacea may have some basis in fact as the plant is known to be anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant.
