The tea appears as long twigs which you can break and place entirely in the teapot. Bring to a boil or pour hot water and let it steep for a few minutes.  1-2 twigs per cup or approximately 3-5 twigs per liter. There are approximately 19 twigs in each tea tube, enough to make 4-5 liters of tea. You can re-boil same stalks at least twice if you prefer. Optional: add honey and lemon. 

Being caffeine-free it can be enjoyed by children, pregnant and lactating women. Packed by hand in eco-friendly packaging (no tea bags are used). 

100 % pure mountain tea (sideritis) sourced directly from harvesters in Albania. 

The name of the mountain tea originates from the old greek name “σίδηρος” (sideros, i.e. iron), due to the high iron content of its stalks and leaves. It is the most popular tea in Albania since it boosts the immune system, cures colds, respiratory problems and stomach aches.  Due to its iron content research has shown that it can be beneficial to prevent anemia.

Intentional, high quality, and purposeful gift!

I loved receiving the beautifully packaged Caj Mali Iron tea. There is even a card inside with some additional information on the background story and also how to use the tea. The tea itself is delicious (especially with the honey, lemon add ons) and makes me feel extra good knowing about its immune boosting essences. I bought it for myself and some for gifts to give away. Really intentional, high quality, and purposeful gift, to yourself and others!

Love the immune boosting properties!

I was really excited to try this tea and was pleased when it arrived very quickly. It has a nice, mild flavor and pairs well with peppermint tea also. I appreciate that it has immune boosting properties as well! Have already shared it with my mom and sister and they enjoyed it also. Definitely recommend giving it a try!
