»EN OLYMPO» ESTATE – Taste & Aroma of Mount Olympus
The first tea trees were planted in 2014. However, our experience with Mt Olympus’ herbs goes way back in time…
Our first memories are images of our grandparents returning from the mountain with bales on their backs….aroma of wild tea emerging from the warehouse where hundreds of bunches of tea hung from the beams…and the lingering taste of hot tea in family gatherings during cold winter nights.
The experiential relationship with Sideritis led us to systematically start its cultivation.
Living on Mt. Olympus, one of the ideal places for cultivating of aromatic plants, allowed us to experiment with other herbs.
In 2017, »En Olympo» Estate became reality. Our bio-certified herbs are cultivated at the foot of the «Mountain of Gods» with natural methods. They are hand-picked and dried traditionally using traditional methods.
Our modern facilities ensure excellent packaging quality, so that we offer you daily…. taste and aroma of Mt Olympus.
Organic Olympus Tea (SIDERITIS SCARDICA) – »EN OLYMPO» ESTATE
The ancients named the mountain tea «Sideritis» (Ironwort) because of its high content of iron but also because they believed that it helped in the rapid healing of wounds.
As it is believed that it is a therapeutic plant due to its soothing properties against colds, all households were never without it. Modern scientific research has proven that the sidertis plant helps with the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
Mountain Tea is the ideal companion for wintery cold days, it is also enjoyed on a sultering hot summer’s day as a soothing cold drink.It is served after being steeped in boiling water for 5-7 minutes; honey, lemon or cinammon can be added depending on the individual’s taste.
