What is Mountain Tea 什麼是希臘高山茶?
Mountain tea, also called ironwart or shepherd’s tea, is known since ancient times for its extraordinary virtues. Mountain tea is traditionally used in Balkan and Mediterranean countries as herbal tea. It is rich in flavonoids. Ironwort has been traditionally used to aid digestion, strengthen the immune system and suppress common cold, the flu and other viruses, allergies and shortness of breath, sinus congestion, even pain and mild anxiety.
希臘高山花草茶，僅少量產於希臘小島的山上，最先被稱為“Shepherd’s Tea /牧羊人之茶”。由於它有輕微緩解頭痛、消化不良、預防感冒的功效，尤其在冬天飲用暖身抗寒，是古代牧羊人不可或缺的天然聖品。自古是歐洲家庭常備飲品。希臘高山茶有超過300個品種。
