Lemon Verbena is widely drunk as a digestive aid, making it the perfect cup for after dinner. The tea’s relaxant qualities mean that it can be drunk to sooth stomach cramps and period pain. Lemon Verbena is also calming for mind as well as body: it is well-known for relieving stress and nervousness.
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.
