  • Flavor

    I am aromatic, earthy, and uplifting with a floral sweetness. You can sense my origins in the hot rocks above the sea.

  • Brewing Instructions

    Use your favorite tea press or infuser with a small handful of tea (2.5g) and steep for 4-6 minutes. Or, using the pot method, add just-boiled water, let it steep for 3-5 minutes, then strain. Add wild Cretan honey to taste and enjoy your Sage Tea!

Cretan Dittany

The Source & History of Cretan Dittany

I am handpicked during the summer bloom on a rocky mountainside above the Mediterranean on the eastern coast of Crete. As a traditional part of the Cretan diet, I have long been considered one of the island's most highly prized plants for my healing, therapeutic and aromatic properties.
