Our Products

Greek mountain tea

Greek Mountain Tea – Sideritis

Premium quality with whole & cut leaves and flowers

Greek Mountain Tea is actually a herb -genus Sideritis- that grows in the Mediterranean. Despite its massive popularity in these regions, it has been an extremely difficult herb to process, that only after years of effort, we have managed to consistently handle its dry, flowering stems in large-scale production methods that can support dozens of tons annually.


Our Mountain Tea is composed of protected Greek varieties that are cultivated at high altitudes across Greece’s mountains to produce a very high quality raw material. Its lemony, flowery, mild herbal flavor appeals to all ages and our production method clearly preserves its supreme quality.

Mountain Tea has been a traditional remedy for colds, still remains the most popular hot beverage in Greece, and our product has been immediately embraced by the knowledgable local market. Our handling process, despite its complexity, has proven able to systematically produce large branded/PL quantities of this unique, authentic Greek herbal tea.

Greek Oregano

For more than 20 years we have been trading and exporting high quality Greek Oregano for food industry applications. It is our main exported herb, cultivated by selected local farmers in northern Greek valeys where the herb is hardened under the scorching sun and cold winds, to produce dried oregano with at least 3% volatile oil content.

To ensure the premium quality of our final product, we carefully choose and test oregano crops and then process the dried herb with modern equipment at every stage of production. During processing in our facilities, our oregano is cleaned and shieved multiple times to eliminate all dust particles and stalks, and also for consistent leaf size, before further packaging. Size reduction options up to powder form are available for specialized applications.
