An aromatic blend of mountain tea and lavender, for a beverage that improves your mental and physical state, with noteworthy relaxing and anti-stress properties. Traditionally known and used for its beneficial properties, drinking mountain tea has an antioxidant and invigorating effect; it enhances memory function and strengthens the immune system. Lavender has naturally calming and soothing properties. It has been shown to alleviate tension and stress during the day, and to relax the body, and calm the senses in the evening for pleasant and restful sleep.
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 lavender is also grown organically.
3-4 Greek Organic Mountain Tea and Lavender pyramids, 5-6 dried rose petals, 1 vanilla bean, fresh lavender flowers
In a pitcher add 3 cups of water, 3 or 4 Greek Organic Mountain Tea and Lavender pyramids and the vanilla bean. Keep covered in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours. Remove the pyramids from the pitcher before serving. Serve in a glass with the fried rose petals and fresh lavender flowers.
Add honey to complement the blend’s soothing properties. If you wish, you can enhance your beverage with a simple natural flavor by adding fresh orange peels to improve mood, or a vanilla bean or cinnamon stick.
