Greek Mountain Tea

$ 9.00

Tasting Notes: Light gold liquor with fresh notes of lemon thyme and a peppery finish.

Greek Mountain Tea has long been used in the Mediterranean as an herbal remedy for everything from inflammation to respiratory illnesses. Modern science has shown that this gorgeous mountain herb also helps to lower blood pressure and improve gut health. 

Naturally caffeine-free, Greek Mountain Tea is also known as Ironwort or its Latin name, Sideritis. Greek Mountain Tea brews a lovely pale straw liquor and gives off herbaceous aromas of sage and lemon thyme. 

A beautiful way to end the day, Greek Mountain Tea is rich in antioxidants - including flavonoids! - and is also thought to help with anemia, preventing osteoporosis, respiratory ailments, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and stomach ulcers.   

Ingredients: Mountain Tea (also known as Ironwort or Sideritis)

Herbal Infusions, blends that do not include the leaf of the camellia sinensis plant, can all be brewed just off the boil (around 205 degrees) for 3 to 6 minutes depending on your taste. Since they lack the naturally occuring tannin that tea has, there is more flexibility in brewing time and temperature.

About Herbal Tea

What is Herbal Tea?

Herbal Infusions, sometimes called "tisanes" are exactly what they sound like, blended or singular herbs, fruits, and flowers designed to be brewed and enjoyed like tea but lacking the inclusion of the leaves of camellia sinensis, the tea plant. We, at Saratoga Tea & Honey Co., do not stand behind the chemical processes that are used to render away the natural caffeine in tea and instead choose to offer these naturally caffeine free (and naturally delicious) infusions as the alternative for those sensitive to caffeine or looking for something at the end of the day.
