Greeks are not known for their love for tea, as are for example the British, Russians and Turkish peoples are. However, when it comes to tea, the first variety that a Greek would think of is ”Chai tou vounou,”or Greek mountain tea.

“Sideritis,” as it is officially known, has been used since ancient times as a medicine, as well as a refreshment.

Ancient, medieval, and modern Greeks also used this herb to boost energy and memory, and up to this very day, it continues to be by far the most popular and famous herb in the country.

The term ”Sideritis” actually comes from the name used by ancient Greeks for this herb.
Meaning “that which contains iron,” sideritis was used as medicine since it is perfect for sore throats or the common cold and its caffeine free.

Anyone who’s been in Greece in the Winter must have been offered a nice hot cup of mountain tea, which is traditionally consumed without milk.

Ancient Greek biologist Theophrastus, who lived from 372 to 287 BC, who is considered to be the father of botany, wrote that sideritis, was so named because of its property to heal wounds from iron objects.

Thus, ancient Greeks not only believed it was a refreshment and a remedy for the common winter cold but also a medicine for far more serious conditions, including injuries.

In modern times, the beneficial properties of Greek mountain tea have been known for decades, as shown by scientific studies conducted around the world.

There is even a recent German study that suggests that the Greek herb can even be a powerful friend in our fight against Alzheimer’s disease, which leads to the degeneration of brain cells, due to its energy-boosting properties that keep the brain active.

Greek mountain tea popular throughout the Mediterranean, with many health benefits

It must be noted that the term ”Greek mountain tea” does not actually mean, however, that this variety of tea is solely Greek.

The sideritis herb can be found in abundance in most Mediterranean regions, from the Iberian peninsula all the way to the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Its consumption, however, is very popular in the southern parts of the Balkan peninsula and in Turkey.

Traditionally Greeks prefer mountain tea during Wintertime

Greek mountain tea is mainly used as a treatment for its beneficial effect on colds and upper respiratory tract infections.

Many also drink it for indigestion and gastrointestinal disorders and it is even considered an anticonvulsant as well.

Greek mountain tea is quite rich in vitamin C. Traces of theobromine can be also found, a diuretic, which acts on the respiratory system.
