Discover the unique riches of Cretan nature in one exceptional beverage. Enjoy a distinctive blend made of endemic Cretan mountain tea, commonly known as malotira, and dittany, the island’s most iconic herb. In Crete, local mountain tea has been prevalent and popular since antiquity; today, thanks to widespread recognition of its important therapeutic and medicinal properties, it is increasingly sought after by nutritionists, high-performance athletes, and natural health advocates all over the world. It is invigorating, with significant antioxidant properties; it aids memory and strengthens the body’s natural defenses. Dittany, also endemic to Crete, has been used medicinally for centuries, to promote improved digestive function and alleviate gastrointestinal discomfort. Both of these medicinal herbs are an integral part of the Cretan diet, which is scientifically recognized for its high nutritional value and contribution to well-being and longevity.

For even greater potency, the blend is fortified with the active dry extract from 3 mountain tea varieties (Sideritis scardica, Sideritis perfoliata, Sideritis raeseri). The patented extraction method for this active dry extract mixture guarantees its powerful antioxidant properties.

Origin

Crete, a legendary place, is famous the world over for its history, its culture, and its unique natural heritage – and for the good health and longevity of its inhabitants. The mountain tea we have chosen is endemic to Crete and is cultivated at an altitude of 750 meters; it is commonly known as malotira or Cretan mountain tea and is distinguished for its invigorating properties. Dittany, an aromatic herb that is endemic – and iconic – to Crete, comes from cultivations in the island’s south, at an altitude of 400 meters. The genetic material for both crops comes from wild populations, so our cultivations help preserve protected local flora.

Hot beverage: Heat 250 ml water to 95°C. Steep the pyramid for 3-5 minutes. Ideally, cover the cup to preserve the tea’s aromas and active ingredients. Then remove the pyramid and, if you wish, add Symbeeosis honey or stevia.
Cold beverage: Prepare like a hot beverage but with half the water, then add cold water or ice
Tip: To make your beverage stronger, use less water per pyramid. To make it lighter, use more.

Be symbiotic

You may add Symbeeosis honey or stevia to taste, and orange peels.

DIY ideas

Use the metal container as a flowerpot to grow dittany at home.
