We source the delicate organic Olympus Tea blossoms from Dimitris and Vassilis Chalkias.
Local farmers that have first adopted sustainable cultivation methods, protecting the species endangered wild populations.
Our cooperation became the catalyst for the preservation of this plant species, setting the example for other farmers.
The latin name for Olympus Tea is Sideritis scardica. Sideritis means ironwort and derives from the Greek word for iron, ""σίδηρος"" (SEE-thee-ros), literally translated as ""the one who is of iron"".
In ancient times, Sideritis was considered a great remedy against war wounds from iron weapons.
Olympus Tea blossoms are harvested once a year, around the end of June.
They are then dried naturally. This is the raw material we extract for our formulations.
