The Greek land's most popular infusion, Terra Ferea's mountain tea is grown and hand-harvested, in Velestino, Thessaly. Its delicate flavor and herbal aroma soothe and benefit body and mind.
For centuries, mountain tea has been proving its worth by remaining the most popular Greek infusion. It has nurtured the body and mind of a long line of Greek countryside generations since it was appreciated not only for its delicate taste but also for its beneficial effects as a herbal remedy. Terra Ferea grows its mountain tea in the historical area of Velestino, Thessaly. After picking it by hand, the Terra Ferea people also package it by hand to ensure that no processing alters its precious traits.
The official name of mountain tea is Sideritis which is derived from the Greek word "sideros", meaning "iron" since in ancient times it was used to treat wounds caused by iron weapons during battles. Mountain tea has many names. It is also known as ironwort, shepherd's tea, and Dioscorides' Sideritis as that renowned ancient Greek physician, pharmacologist, and botanist was the one who extolled the virtues of mountain tea. It is a true, traditional Greek product. It grows and is cultivated throughout Greece since demand for it by both children and adults is always high. Greece boasts the largest consumption of mountain tea worldwide, with Spain following a close second. There are about 17 species of mountain tea growing on the mountain ranges of Greece with most of them being self-growing on rocky soil and at high altitudes. Mountain tea is traditionally drunk for its alleviating effects on colds and upper respiratory tract inflammations and for its ability to combat indigestion and gastrointestinal disorders. It is also considered an ideal cure for spasms, aches and is highly touted for its healing properties. Those benefits of mountain tea claimed by tradition have now become fact in a rare encounter between tradition and science which now corroborates the claims of tradition. As a result, demand for mountain tea has skyrocketed which comes as no surprise: it soothes, it's caffeine-free, and offers endless moments of relaxation!
