The Greek Way of Tea

Greeks have their own unique tea. It's called mountain tea, Tsai Tou VouNou (pronounced Tsy Too Voo Noo). It is an herbal tea made from a native plant known as sideritis. The plant grows, you guessed it, on a mountain. It is a health tea, known for its anti-inflammatory properties and its prevention of osteoporosis. Hippocrates praised this tea for its healing qualities.

I don't have any of this delicious sounding tea, so I will content myself with a cranberry and blood orange black tea, and refresh my memory reading about Greek myths. Or better yet, go and watch one of my favorite movies: My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
