An antioxidant tea from the Cretan mountains!

The use of pink rockrose in medicinal practices dates back to ancient Greek times. It features prominently in Greek mythology, in which it was supposedly given as a gift from the Gods on Mount Olympus to heal fallen warriors, wounded in action. However, as the story goes, the Greek Goddesses felt the delicate flowers were more suitable as a vessel for the transference of beauty. As such, the pink rockrose was imbibed with both properties – cosmetic and healing powers.

Pink rockrose goes by many names – lavdano, aladanos, kistos, and Balm of Gilead. But it is easily recognized by its delicate bright pink-purple flowers, which bear a distinct, crumpled look.

The plant grows in many climatic zones across Europe and has a long history of use in herbal remedies, particularly prized for its antibacterial properties, and its use in digestive remedies.

The plant itself is a bushy, evergreen shrub with silvery green leaves, which can thrive in even tough environments. It is very tolerant of wind, drought, and salt spray, meaning it is often found along the coastline.

Pink rockrose – or to use its Latin name, Cistus incanus – is a very rich source of polyphenols. These powerful natural compounds will boost your body with their antioxidant powers, which can help to support your immune system. Polyphenols also exhibit amazing antibiotic properties, meaning that they have long been used in traditional herbal remedies.

Organically and sustainably harvested you can be certain that your tea is sustainably sourced, so you can keep incorporating it into your day for years to come. Carefully packaged in this 35g bag, we’ve double packed these delicate flowers and leaves to ensure they are fully protected. The ziplock on the internal bag makes it easy to open and reseal, carefully preserving the aroma. The outer carton keeps the blend dry and protected from light.

Our family is very pleased to offer you one of the best-known and most important medicinal aromatic herbs that we harvest in the mountains of Crete. An admirable herbal tea full of antioxidant -and not only- attributes.
