Sideritis is the top tea variety. It is a variety of tea from the Greek countryside with important properties, being a herb of high medicinal value. It should not be confused with “regular” tea, as it has a sweet, floral aroma, an earthy aftertaste and contains no caffeine. It owes its scientific name Sideritis to its reputation for healing iron wounds. The ancient Greeks were aware of the medicinal properties of the plant and used it in herbal medicine of the time as a panacea, i.e. it was considered the appropriate medicine for any disease.
Indicatively mentioned are some more actions, as it was traditionally used to enhance digestion and the immune system, the suppression of viral infections, for the treatment of allergies and dyspnea and against mild anxiety.
Modern researches verify its therapeutic effect and attribute to it, in addition, inhibitory properties in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, as well as in diabetes mellitus.
