Greek Mountain Tea (also known as Shepards Tea and Ironwort) derives from the Sideritis plant which grows high in the Mountains of Greece. It was used by the Ancient Greeks – and still in Greece today – for its many believed health benefits. The Greek philosopher and father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, hailed the Siderites plant for its benefits on the immune system, digestion, respiratory health and everyday aches and pains. Today modern research supports its anti-flammatory and antioxidant properties.
Dependent on your tastes and needs, add a table spoon of blossoms to a cup/pot with boiled water. Infuse tea for 6-9 minutes depending on desired strength.
