“May your food be thy medicine and thy medicine be your food”

Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.), Father of western Medicine

Today, almost 300 years after being recorded for the first time, sideritis scardica is still the King of herbs which grow in the near-mediteranean countries. Its rich aroma and special properties make it an essential and ideally everyday element of the world-famous mediteranean diet.

“The highest quality tea, comes from the highest mountains”, says an ancient Chinese saying. “The highest Greek mountains” we would add.

From the mountaintops of Olympus, home of the ancient Gods, we bring to you one of the most important herbs with a constant presence in the mediteranenan diet for centuries.

In Greece it is known as “Mountain Tea” It is an aromatic herb. It is an aromatic herb found on the Greek mountains in an altitude of over 1000 metres.
