The beneficial effect of Greek mountain tea in case of cough and cold is known since ancient times. In recent years, e.g. by the University of Rostock, spectacular influences on mental and psychological health have been proven in tests with laboratory mice: it was found that the administration of this tea can reduce by 80 percent the toxic protein deposits in the brain which over the years accumulate, and that trigger dementia and Alzheimer's disease. In short, Greek mountain tea cleans up the brain thanks to its effect on the central nervous system. Watch also the interesting video on this website in chapter "About Greek mountain tea - effects on health". The video is in German and shows mice suffering from Alzheimer’s disease regaining their orientation in a water pool after the administration of Sideritis scardica. In addition to many other positive effects, this tea contains a lot of natural antioxidants and flavonoids that make free radicals harmless, with the result that the aging process is slowed down. Regarding the species sideritis scardica a corrective effect was observed in cardiac arrhythmia.
According to a Greek postgraduate study, cultivated mountain tea contains "more and better" essential oils than the wild-growing.
This Sideritis is planted in the triangle Greece / Albania / FYRO Macedonia at 700 meters above sea level and farmed organically. The raeseri is the most common Greek mountain tea and is meanwhile grown by many farmers because it is an "easy care" Sideritis. Therefore, it is also the cheapest of (legal) mountain teas.
The raeseri has thick felted stems like the clandestina and few leaflets; the flowers are set at irregular intervals: below with more distance, closely above.
Since forestry departments and environmental organizations claim that all wild Sideritis are threatened with extinction, you shouldn’t buy wild tea of this species.
We tasted many Sideritis raeseri, this one is really very good and strong in flavor.
Carefully packed and low air sealed. Detailed information about preparation, essential oils, threat of extinction etc. see chapter "About Greek mountain tea" on this website.
