Greek Mountain Tea (also known as "Sideritis" or ironwort) grows wild along the mountainous region of Magnesia, Greece, at an elevation of 2500 feet (800m). This rare tea is historically known as "Shepherd’s Tea" because Greek shepherds used the plantto make a brewed tea while tending to their flocks on the mountainsides.
The tea is hand-picked from Mt. Othris in Central Greece, and has been a secret of good health and well-being for centuries among our ancestors. It has been traditionally used to aid digestion, strengthen the immune system and suppress common cold, the flu and other viruses, allergies and shortness of breath, nasal congestion, even pain and mild anxiety. The tisane is commonly prepared by decoction, by boiling the stems, leaves and flowers in a pot of water, served with honey and lemon.
Contains no caffeine.
