Greek Mountain Tea – Review

By Geoff Griffiths @mmatraining1980

Greek Mountain Tea has a range of benefits

  • Reduces Anxiety (study)
  • Increases brain-power / cognitive function (study)
  • It is a powerful anti-oxidant (study)

It’s a strange one because it increases cognitive performance but also has a mild sedative effect.

Just for good luck, there’s another study here which covers the phytochemical properties of Greek Mountain Tea:

Greek Mountain Tea – Review

Known by locals as “Tsai Tou VouNou” meaning “tea of the mountain”) it was used historically by Greek Shepherds who worked amongst the mountains.

It’s also famous for being recommended, or at least noted for its medicinal benefits, by the famous Hippocrates, a physician who lived around 400 BC.

Historically it has been used for colds, aches, pains and lethargy. It may help in maintaining general health thanks to its high levels of antioxidants. It also has anti-microbial properties (ref), which can be handy if you’re living 400 BC and don’t have any anti-biotics.

The tea is also known as Ironwort or Sideritis.
