Teas & herbs
Due to its temperate climate and exceptionally diverse flora and fauna, Greece is renowned for its wild herbs and botanicals. Wild herbs, usually collected from mountains, are used to enhance myriad dishes as well as to brew speciality teas and infusions – the majority of which are intended as natural remedies. Wild herbs were an integral part of Hippocratic medicine . Many essential extracts of these herbs are still used in modern medicine today.
