Wildcrafted Cretan Mountain Tea From Lefka Ori | Limited
Discover the purest essence of Crete with our wildcrafted Cretan Mountain Tea, sourced directly from the pristine heights of the Lefka Ori mountain range in Western Crete. Every sip will transport you to the untouched beauty of the Cretan mountains, where nature thrives in its purest form.
Authentic Wildcrafting: Unlike regular teas, our Cretan Mountain Tea is wildcrafted, ensuring you get the genuine, undiluted flavor and potency of this iconic herb. Each harvest is a testament to nature's magic and the dedication of our harvesters.
Enhanced Natural Potency: Harvested directly from the wild terrains of Lefka Ori, this Cretan Mountain Tea boasts a natural potency that surpasses teas from organic cultivations. The rich soils, untouched by modern farming methods, imbue the tea with a unique strength and depth of flavor, offering a brew that's as invigorating as it is healthful.
Harvested with Care: In the rugged terrains of Lefka Ori where machines dare not tread, our tea leaves are harvested at the mountain's zenith using the traditional method - with the aid of hardworking donkeys. This time-honored approach ensures that the delicate leaves are collected with utmost care, preserving their natural goodness.
A Taste of Tradition: When you savor our tea, you're not just enjoying a beverage but partaking in a rich Cretan tradition that goes back centuries. Each cup embodies the spirit of the mountains, the purity of nature, and the dedication of the people who bring this tea to your table.
For the best flavor, steep a teaspoon of the tea in boiling water for 5-7 minutes. Enjoy it plain, or add a dash of honey or lemon for an enhanced taste experience.
◉ 1-3 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
◉ When herbs are used for an extended period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example:
- If you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause.
- If it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause.
That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry place- to preserve the flavor, texture, and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
Herbal Tea Brewing Instructions
- Hot Brew
- Heat the water to just the point when it starts to boil.
- Add 1 teaspoon of loose tea, to a tea infuser or tea bag, for every 180ml - 240ml of water.
- Pour the heated water (right off the boil) over the tea, cover your cup, and steep for 7-10 minutes or longer.
- Add honey or stevia for sweetness, if desired.
- Cold Brew
A cold infusion delivers flavors that are sweeter, smoother, more complex, and can be made in a number of different ways.
The Fast Way (Best For Herbal Tea)
Follow the steps as shown in the "Hot Brew", but use less water, and perhaps even more tea, in order to produce tea concentrate.
Strain and pour over ice or cold water.
Overnight Ice Tea
Add 1-2 teaspoons of loose tea to a tea infuser or tea bag, for every 200ml - 250ml of water. Pour room-temperature water over the tea, stir, cover, and refrigerate for 6 to 12 hours.
