Greek Mountain Tea uses the dried flowers, leaves and stems of the native Greek plant Sideritis (also known as Ironwort). It was first brewed as a tea by Greek shepherds whilst tending their flocks on the mountainsides, and is widely used in herbal medicine as well as for herbal teas. In ancient times, the herbs were used topically to treat battle wounds, and have long been considered a remedy for colds, indigestion, and a general boost to the immune system. As well as having a deliciously sweet, floral flavour, Greek Mountain Tea is packed with natural antioxidants, and has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, it can help with pain relief, allergy treatment, respiratory issues and mild abdominal discomfort.
