Smooth, mild earthy and Anise aroma
Greek Mountain Tea is also known as shepherd's tea, Olympos tea and Parnassos tea, is a genus of flowering plants well known for their use as herbal medicine, commonly as an herbal tea. The most common English name other than Mountain Tea is Shepherd's Tea because Greek shepherds use the plants to make a brewed tea while tending their flocks high in the hills. They are abundant in Mediterranean regions, the Balkans, the Iberian Peninsula and Macaronesia, but can also be found in Central Europe and temperate Asia
The tea is aptly named: The plant used to make it is found on rocky slopes at elevations over 3,200 feet. These plants are hardy flowering perennials that have adapted to survive with little water and little soil. The tea contains high levels of antioxidants and large amounts of essential oils, flavonoids, sterols, and other phytonutrients. Mountain Tea is enormously popular in Greece and is brewed most often in winter when levels of physical activity decrease and colds, aches, and pains increase. It is said to have a positive effect on almost anything that ails you, but mostly it is used to combat colds, respiratory problems, indigestion, and mild anxiety. It is said to bolster the immune system and is valued for its antioxidants, as an anti-inflammatory and to reduce fever.
