Brewing instructions


Karteraki Herbal Tea is a traditional mix of loose herbs from central Crete. Each area in Crete produces a different version of this tea. Karteraki comes from the Greek verb which means to hope and wait, so Karteraki means a little hoping and waiting!

Ingredients- Dictamo, Malotira, Mint, Anise, Salvia and Marjoram.

Brewing Guide- We recommend using 1 teaspoon of the leaf, but if you like a stronger tea, then you could us up to 1½. This tea tastes best with freshly boiled water (roughly 100 degrees) and left to infuse for 5 to 10 minuets.

How to Serve- Serve without milk to make a fantastic healthy herbal tea.

Tasting Notes- A very pleasant taste with notes of Lemon.

Colour in Cup- A pale yellow with golden highlights

Pack sizes available- 50g, 125g, 250g, 500g, 1 Kilo. ( We pack everything fresh to order, nothing is off the shelf ! ). We pack all our teas in a unique material which combines card and foil, regarded as the best for retaining freshness and quality.

Storage- In an airtight container away from other strong scents and heat. We would recommend using this tea within a year of purchasing.

Health Benefits- This tea is full of antioxidants and acts as a very good detoxing tea! It also helps relax and refresh the body as well as aiding weight loss!

    Something about it just makes you (or me, anyway) want to keep drinking it! It's not particularly strong in flavour, but it's quite refreshing, and it's nice to chew on the odd anise seeds in it that reach your mouth :)
