Tasting notes

Our Sideretis grows in the middle of the Taygetos mountains, several hours walk from the first village. It is a semi-wild crop, with a minimum of human intervention. The Clandestina variety is specific to this region.

While its cousin from Mount Olympus is marked by its opulence and roundness, it is the wild side that expresses itself here, with a pure and vibrant infusion, of great depth.

Its fragrances, characteristic of the other members of its family (sage, thyme, lavender, lemon balm), are delicately rounded out by the sweetness of the cane sugar, for a full and harmonious cup that expresses the full potential of wild mountain plants.

Brewing tips

3/ to gr for 500 ml - 4 to 5min at 95°.
If Sideritis is reputed to be tonic, the Greeks like to drink it from morning to evening, sometimes with a touch of honey for extra pleasure.
