The national herbal beverage of Greece! Peppery and delicious, an outstanding flower both beautiful to drink and behold. From Wikipedia: "Sideritis (also known as ironwort, mountain tea and shepherd's tea) is a genus of flowering plants well known for their use as herbal medicine, commonly as an herbal tea. Ironwort is known scientifically to be anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant. Active elements include diterpenoids, flavonoids, and its essential oils. Significant research has been done on ironwort confirming its popular use to prevent colds, flu, and allergies. Most of this research has taken place in universities in the Netherlands and in Greece, Turkey, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Albania, where the plant is indigenous. "
