HIGH IN ANTIMICROBRIALS
Our rare Certified Organic Greek Mountain Tea is carefully grown at high altitude on Mount Olympus, is harvested by hand and picked at optimum maturity. It has a mild floral flavour which is easy to drink. It is naturally caffeine free so you can enjoy it at any time of the day. We recommend adding a teaspoon of Hellenic Gift Organic Honey to help create a delicious taste! We know you will find it irresistible too.
HOW IS THE TEA COLLECTED?
On harvest day, it is immediately collected and air dried in undercover, open drying stations on Mount Olympus. It is dried for seven days to achieve the correct moisture content thereby ensuring the essential oils are captured within the tea. This step is critical for the development of the complex herbal flavours and health benefits of the tea.
Incorrect drying methods such as air blowers or metal vats destroy most of the incredible health-related active ingredients. Hellenic Gift Greek Mountain Tea contains natural antioxidants such as flavonoids, which have the beneficial attributes of reducing the risk of heart disease, asthma, and stroke.
Hellenic Gift Organic Greek Mountain Tea is certified by BIO HELLAS, the leading certification authority in Greece. No irradiation occurs in our harvesting process and no chemicals or pesticides are ever used in producing our tea. The specific variety of Hellenic Gift Greek Mountain Tea is Organic Sideritis Scardica. We believe the Organic Sideritis Scardica is the King of Greek Mountain Teas and we only package whole stalk tea for our customers. You see exactly what you are brewing every time!
