An instantly invigorating boost with delicious spicy flavor, this unexpected blend of mountain tea and fiery ginger has excellent detoxing and other beneficial properties. Traditionally known and used medicinally, mountain tea has antioxidant and energizing effects; it enhances memory function and strengthens the immune system. The ginger root, with its distinctive zingy flavor, has been used since antiquity as a natural tonic and digestive, and to ease breathing in colds and allergies. Thanks to its high antioxidant content, it also strengthens the immune system.
For even greater potency, the blend is fortified with the active dry extract of Sideritis Scardica.
The mountain tea selected for this blend is Sideritis scardica that grows on Mount Olympus, the mythical residence of the Ancient Greek gods, but also an invaluable ecosystem. Olympus is a paradise of diverse and unique flora: home to over 1500 plant species, it includes areas where almost all plant life is locally endemic. The region is a protected national park and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, ranked among the most prized in the world in terms of flora. This is where we get our mountain tea, grown with contemporary organic practices and with respect for the environment. The region’s ideal natural conditions, our innovative farming practices, and our approach of working with nature rather than exploiting it, produce a mountain tea with exceptional nutritional and flavor properties. Our ginger is also grown organically.
