Greek Mountain Tea is a single varietal, whole leaf, organic tea, pure and unprocessed. It is made from the dried flowers, leaves and stems of the native Sideritis plant which grows throughout the mountainous regions of Greece at very high elevations - typically over 3,000 feet. It is known for its high levels of antioxidants and contains large amounts of essential oils and more than 60 other compounds, including saponines, flavonoids and polyphenols.
For thousands of years, Greek families have been drinking the tea because they believe it has an abundance of health benefits. Research has shown Greek Mountain Tea to be rich in antioxidants and indicates that it assists in the prevention of osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and even cancer and has a positive effect on a myriad of different ailments including colds, fevers, respiratory problems, digestion problems, and anxiety.
