Greek Mountain Tea
The Source & History of Vordonia Mountain Tea
I grow on the rocky hillsides of Mount Taygetos above 3,000 ft, near the small village of Vordonia. I am cared for by hand over the winter and then carefully harvested as my flowers begin to appear over several months in the spring. The Spartans in the valley below as well as the other great cities in the ancient world used me for refreshment and healing and this tradition continues today, thousands of years later.
