A piece of Cretan History!
Cretan mountain tea “Malotira” is a small piece of Crete’s history with numerous references mostly about its healing properties. Its gray-green leaves and its small yellow flowers are characteristic. Every summer, it is collected by hand from the mountains of Crete. You can as well discover its amazing benefits and medicinal properties, just like the Venetians did many centuries ago, but also the Cretans themselves before them.
Emphasis on Quality
Full of valuable ingredients for the organism, Cretan mountain tea does not contain caffeine. Consequently, it is suitable for consumption any time during the day. It is available in packages of 20gr. and 5gr., which ensure its absolute protection. Zipped in a bag suitable for food, you can easily open and close it again, keeping the content fresh, and its unique aroma unchanged. Protected from light and wind, you can enjoy a fresh cup of tea each time.
