#1127 From mountainous slopes in Greece, this traditional Mediterranean tisane (also known as Shepherd's Tea) has long been valued by Greek mothers for its ability to soothe the stresses of the day. With an herbaceous hint of lemon, this tea is lovely hot or iced. Available either in cut pieces or in whole stalks, a drinkable bouquet!
