    Characteristics: vegan, sugar free, zero calories, all natural, gluten free, pesticides free, no chemicals, Non-GMO

    Other Tips: 

    While simmering, keep the tea covered. This will prevent the beneficial essential oils from escaping with the steam.

    A longer simmer will produce a stronger cup of tea without any hint of bitterness.

    If you are making a cold brew, make a whole pitcher and not just a cup. Make sure the leaves are well soaked -you may put a lid and shake- and keep your pitcher covered in the refrigerator. Your cold brew tea will stay fresh for up to 3 days.

    Make Herbal Tea Ice Cubes! Just pour your cold brew tea into ice cube trays, and freeze completely. Pair with filtered water, club sodas, fruit smoothies, mocktails, and cocktails.

    Dittany from Crete may be used for seasoning soups, sauces, salads, roasts, and vegetables.
