Mark Evans has this to say “Sideritis bushes grow at high altitude in rough, mountainous terrain in the Southern Mediterranean and the Balkans. One of the many species, Sideritis scardica, is the source of a popular, health-giving and invigorating “shepherd’s tea” (actually a tisane) that was considered a great “remedy against trauma from iron weapons”. In fact, “sideritis” derives from the Greek word for iron and is also called Ironwort.

This rare CO2 extract of this dried herb captures the essence of those wild Greek hillsides and the clean, mountain air with a fresh, spicy tea aroma that includes intriguing aspects of tobacco, camphor and pepper.

As with all tea leaf extracts, this is a top note material which only lasts an hour or two on the blotter but that time is a delightful experience knowing that you are smelling exactly what wounded Greek warriors smelled when sipping their healing ironwort tea or what remote villagers still smell as they sip their shepherd’s tea in the cool evenings.”
