Mountain Tea | Bouquet
This gorgeous plant is the national herbal infusion of Greece, and it’s been part of their diet since ancient times. Daphnis and Chloe's selection comes from a beautiful organic farm in Grevena.
These handmade bouquets of Mountain Tea are among the most elaborate products they make at Daphnis and Chloe. Their supplier was among the first to cultivate the green and purple-hued variety of the area, which has a significantly higher concentration in flavonoids, antioxidants, and phenolic content than its commercially available rivals.
Answering the Latin name Sideritis, this herb has traditionally served as a folk remedy for inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders, and the common cold. Recent research shows that its extracts can enhance memory and learning.
The southing, mellow sprigs of this extraordinary herb make a delicate herbal infusion, ideal for any time of the day.
Good quality Mountain Tea has a delicate, herbaceous flavor and is naturally caffeine-free. Use all parts of the plant. You’ll need 2-3 springs (1g) per cup, dosage on taste. Simmer for 5mins at 95C, covered. Strain and serve warm or at room temperature.
