Dapnhis and Chloe Dittany from Crete Tea (Sachet)

Regular price $11.50


Dittany is a unique aromatic plant, which is a local endemic to the island of Crete. The leaves and flowers of this cushion-forming, beautiful shrub are traditionally used to prepare herbal teas. In the wild, it grows exclusively as a rock-dweller over 500mt of altitude, and it was believed that one has to be genuinely in love to climb and gather its tender shoots. This legend reflects the plant’s romantic vernacular name Erontas, from the ancient Greek God of love.
