Origin: The mountain tea selected for this blend is Sideritis scardica that grows on Mount Olympus. Its medicinal properties were known since antiquity: the name “Sideritis” [= of iron] was used for all plants that were believed to cure wounds inflicted by iron swords. Olympus, the mythical residence of the Ancient Greek gods, is also a rare ecosystem. It is a paradise of diverse and unique flora: home to over 1500 plant species, it includes areas where almost all plant life is locally endemic. The region is a protected national park and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, ranked among the most prized in the world in terms of flora. Mountain tea is grown with the latest organic methods, combining respect for the natural environment with ideal cultivation practices. Cultivating plants in areas where they grow wild does not disturb the local ecosystem and yields a mountain tea with distinct nutritional and flavor properties.
Uses: Hot beverage: Heat 250 ml water to 95°C. Steep the pyramid for 3-5 minutes. Ideally, cover the cup to preserve the tea’s aromas and active ingredients. Then remove the pyramid and, if you wish, add Symbeeosis honey or stevia.
Cold beverage: Prepare like a hot beverage but with half the water, then add cold water or ice.
Tip: To make your beverage stronger, use less water per pyramid. To make it lighter, use more.
Recipe: A refreshing pitcher with rich flavor and antioxidant elements. Fresh fruit add their freshness and aromas. Ideal throughout the day.
Ingredients: 4-5 Greek Organic Mountain Tea Flowers sprigs, 2 fresh mint sprigs, fresh wild berries or fruit of your choice
Method: In a pitcher, add 3 cups of water and 5 Greek Organic Mountain Tea Flowers sprigs. Keep covered in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours. Remove the mountain tea flower sprigs from the pitcher before serving. Strain and serve in a glass with the fresh mint sprigs and the wild berries or other fruit of your choice.
