Description: A rejuvenating and invigorating blend of mountain tea and refreshing mint that also facilitates digestion. Traditionally known and used for its beneficial properties, drinking mountain tea has antioxidant and invigorating effects; it enhances memory function and strengthens the immune system. Mint has been known for centuries to relieve gastrointestinal discomfort by easing the digestion process. Its distinctive fresh and cool flavor delivers a sense of refreshment and vitality.
For even greater potency, the blend is fortified with the active dry extract of Sideritis Scardica.
Origin: The mountain tea selected for this blend is Sideritis scardica that grows on Mount Olympus, the mythical residence of the Ancient Greek gods, but also an invaluable ecosystem. Olympus 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. This is where we get our mountain tea, grown with contemporary organic practices and with respect for the environment. The region’s ideal natural conditions, our innovative farming practices, and our approach of working with nature rather than exploiting it, produce a mountain tea with exceptional nutritional and flavor properties.
Our mint (Mentha x piperita) is grown with the most modern biological practices and with respect for the natural environment in the Thessalian plain. The selection of the appropriate variety that in this area finds the ideal natural conditions, in combination with our careful practices, results in a mint of exceptional quality, rich in active ingredients.
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: Combine Greek Organic Mountain Tea and Mint with fresh spearmint leaves and mint sprigs for enhanced flavor and tonic properties. Enjoy this cold beverage at any time of day.
