Sarandadentri, literally “forty herbs”, is a mix of forty endemic aromatic plants with a range of healing or tonic properties. The forty herbs in Sarandadentri are not chosen at random but selected to promote health by fortifying the immune system as well as the body’s circulatory, digestive, and respiratory systems. The forty herbs impart a delicate aroma that fortifies this sweet-smelling Cretan Tea.
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.
