Greek Mountain Tea
Rich in antioxidants and traditionally having a variety of uses, the infusion of the delicate herb has been part of the Greek diet since ancient times, mentioned by Greek Mythology as the food of the Titans. Greek Mountain Tea (siderite) prefers growing on rocky hillsides over 1000 meters of altitude and each mountain has its own varietal. The Daphnis & Chloe selection comes from a family farm on Mount Parnon, which for years has been cultivating the local variety of the region.
During the winter months there’s no better way to end your day than the sweet, floral fragrance of Greek Mountain Tea coming out of a smoking hot tea cup. Use all parts of the plant. Stems leaves and flowers are equally fragrant and beneficial. Good quality Mountain Tea has a delicate, herbaceous flavor and is naturally caffeine-free. You’ll need 2 springs (1g) per tea cup, dosage on taste. With your fingers or with a pair of scissors, cut springs in 1.5 inch pieces. Simmer for 6 minutes in hot water, covered. Strain and serve alone or with honey, warm or at room temperature.
