Greek Mountain Tea

These handmade bouquets of Mountain Tea are among the most elaborate products at Daphnis and Chloe. It takes their most skilled workers an entire hour to put together just 15 of them. The southing, mellow sprigs of this extraordinary herb make a delicate herbal infusion, ideal for any time of the day.

Travel Story

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.

Mountain Tea flourishes on rocky slopes over 1.000 meters of altitude, with many Greek mountains being home to little-known, local varietals. Our selection comes from a beautiful organic farm in Grevena. Our 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.
