From the very beginning, the quality of our herbal teas was extremely important to us. But until they are infused by you and spread their unique taste, they experience a long and far journey.
Mountain farmers have extracted seeds from the wild plant of mountain tea and, after intensive trials and controls, have grown seedlings from them. These are planted after the growing period of 3 months in soil approved for organic farming. It takes 2 years for a seedling to develop sufficient root system in lean soil. From the 3rd year and for another 5 years it blooms. It is harvested during the flowering period.
After the drying phase, which can take up to 4 weeks, the flower stalks come to the Mediterranean Soil workshop to be processed and refined by us: quality mountain tea for your enjoyment.
Several species of these plants are known. With us you get SIDERITIS SCARDICA AND RAESERI. Mountain tea grows only in higher mountain regions and develops a particularly spicy and strong note in combination with a pleasantly mild taste, which makes it unmistakable.
