How to try the Cretan mountain tea on Crete
The real Cretan mountain tea is made from malotira. This plant has many useful properties. The Greeks used malotira tea against colds, lung diseases, stomach anxiety, even stress.

Greeks like to mix different species of herbs to create a special kind of tea. Such fine drinks can be found in all restaurants and cafes in every city in Crete.

Buy the tea as gifts to friends you can in the supermarket or on the market.

How much?

€1 for a cup of tea. From €3 for a 20 grams bag of tea in a supermarket.
