I bought this because a Greek internet friend had been raving about it. Often consumed when one is feeling a little under the weather-but can be drunk any time. My friend had me put the stalks directly in my cup with the leaves on them. After that, I removed the stalks as best as possible and then poured through my tea strainer into a different cup. It’s good, but not exciting. A bit lemony, as TG suggests. Mild spice notes. Caffeine-free, good for bedtime. I probably won’t buy it again, but I would drink it if offered

According my opinion the real tea!
It is not processed naturally dry in the sun and with unique flavor!

My Greek friend gave me a sample of this and I’m just trying it now. It smells herby (but not vegetative) and a little bit spicy. I would place the flavour somewhere between orageno and catnip. The plant has a unique taste to it. Sort of faintly lemony or peppery with an after taste similar to soap. It might not be something I would drink every day, but I find the flavour unique and pleasant.

I want to start drinking this a few times per month for health reasons. It is said this herb help to prevent colds/flus, lowers blood pressure, relieves sinus congestion, and is an anti-inflammatory. I used two small dried stalks to brew one 350 ml cup, but I will be re-steeping it again shortly. It doesn’t seem to get overly strong if you leave the leaves in. I brewed mine for about 10 minutes because I forgot to check it and it was colourless so I thought it wasn’t done. It is quite forgiving that way.
