A delicious and light beverage that you will only find
on the tops of the Cretan mountains.

Οne of the best-known and most important medicinal – aromatic herbs that grow on the mountains of Crete, at an altitude over 800m.

Perennial evergreen shrub that botanically belongs to the genus Sideritis, reaches a height of 70 cm, has an upright woody shoot and bears lanceolate fluffy leaves and small yellow flowers.

Μalotira has always been an exceptional product known to all Cretans.

The plant’s name is attributed to the Venetians, once conquerors of the island, who acknowledged the use of the plant against colds, as well as stomach and respiratory illnesses, and gave it the name “maletira” from the Italian world male=disease, illness, and the verb tirare=drag, thus expressing their appreciation for its therapeutic properties.

According to another etymology, the word derives from malotos=hairy, due to the presence of dense fluff on the leaves and on the stems of the plant.
