Mountain tea is soothing and good for you but when it comes to Pure Natura's mountain tea from the legendary island of Crete, you are dealing with a panacea. It is hand-picked on the Crete's lofty mountains and has come to bring Greek Mother Nature's health benefits through its elegant herbal aroma, heartwarming taste, and countless beneficial properties.
Mountain tea has been proving for centuries how invaluable its contribution to health is by ranking first among popular Greek infusions. Its delicate taste and beneficial effects as a herbal remedy have nurtured the body and mind of a long line of Greek countryside generations. The mountain tea offered by Pure Natura is grown and hand-harvested in Heraklion, Crete. It is then packaged in its natural, unprocessed state to ensure that its invaluable traits retain their original benefits.
The scientific name of mountain tea is Sideritis, the Greek word for "sideros" meaning "iron" since in antiquity it was used in treating wounds caused by iron weapons during battles. That thoroughly Greek and thoroughly traditional herbal infusion is also known as Dioscorides' Sideritis after the ancient Greek physician, pharmacologist, and botanist Dioscorides who was the one who extolled the virtues of mountain tea. It grows and is cultivated throughout Greece since it remains the most popular infusion around: 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 ones which prefer rocky soil and high altitudes. Mountain tea is highly valued for its healing properties and is traditionally drunk by those who wish to alleviate colds and upper respiratory tract inflammations and to combat indigestion and gastrointestinal disorders. It is also considered an effective home remedy for spasms and aches.
Today, in a rare case of agreement between folk medicine and science, tradition's claims about the benefits of mountain tea have been verified by science. As a result, demand for mountain tea has skyrocketed. No surprise there: it soothes, it's caffeine-free, and offers endless moments of relaxation! What's more, it can be consumed at any time of the day or night since unlike other teas mountain tea is not a stimulant but a relaxant.
