Echinacea tea has long been used as a staple in improving the immune system and fending off infections. Echinacea offers antibacterial properties that prevent pathogens from making you sick. Echinacea tea can also soothe a sore throat and minimize aches and pains caused by the common cold and flu.
Cretan herbs are a great tradition of our island. During the winter Cretans drink many hot herbal beverages, especially Cretan tea cocktails made from various local herbs. Maravel mountain herbs are grown exclusively on our land (in and around the Garden), and then collected, dried under natural conditions and packed by our experienced staff, without any chemical or other treatment. They are considered to have medicinal and healing properties and help boost your immune system. Maravel herb cocktails are traditional Cretan herbal mix teas, and they include Mountain Tea (Mallotira), Dictamus, Sage, Lemon Verbena, Marjoram and other herbs from our Garden.
