From Tea Story

Traditional and popular winter hot drink with medicinal qualities.

Mountain tea is a mild aromatic tea with slight citrusy undertones. It is enormously popular in Greece where the health benefits of this wild, natural tea are very well known. It is used to treat a whole host of ailments, like aiding digestion, strengthening the immune system, suppressing colds, flu and other viruses, allergies, shortness of breath, sinus congestion and even pain and mild anxiety. It is also used as an anti-inflammatory and to reduce fever.

Mountain tea grows on rocky slopes at altitudes of between 800-1500m above sea level, it is a hardy flowering perennial that survives with little water and little soil.

This tea is made from the dried leaves, flowers and stalks of the Sideritis syriaca (ironwort) plant.

The resulting tea is bright, floral, lemony and herby— tasting, strangely, exactly the way the Greek countryside smells in the spring and summer. Taken with a little honey it is warming and comforting. This does seem like the type of herbal that you would want to drink when suffering or trying to stave off a cold and also seems like it might settle your stomach. It’s one of the most delicious herbal teas around.It also makes a nice evening brew, as it’s caffeine-free and very soothing. Delicious natural medicine! It also has a great potential as a Detox cleanser – highly recomended.
