Organic Greek Mountain Tea - Sideritis Scardica
Sideritis Scardica from Mt. Olympus
Grown on upper slopes of Mount Olympus (altitude 900m). The light and woody aroma will remind you of the wild Greek hillsides. Best served straight with some organic honey. Or, for a Hong Kong local twist, brewed with Lychee infused red tea with honey to taste.
What is Mountain Tea?
Mountain tea, also called ironwart or shepherd’s tea, is known since ancient times for its extraordinary virtues. Mountain tea is traditionally used in Balkan and Mediterranean countries as herbal tea. It is rich in flavonoids. Ironwort 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, sinus congestion, even pain and mild anxiety.
How to brew Greek Mountain Tea?
Break off a few whole springs (3-5g) and steep in boiling water for 5-8 minutes.
Or, to brew as decoction, place in pot of water on high heat and bring to a boil then starin.
