Organic Greek Sea Buckthorn - Evros, Thrace (1.4 oz)



Known as Hippophaes in Greece (pronounced "e-pof-i-es"), it means “bright horse”. This amazing native herb, a virtual superfood, earned its moniker in the days of Alexander the Great (circa 350 BC), from the reviving effects it had when he and his men would feed it to horses that were wounded in battle.

I was so happy to finally purchase, as it sells out so quickly. Hopeful, because I am able to drink a “superfood” as a tea. I am a tea-oholic!

A great black tea replacement.

I have always loved the taste of black tea but can’t tolerate the jitters. The Sea Buckthorn tea is as close to the taste of black tea that I have found in an herbal beverage. And I have been surprised at being able to steep the leaves several times before tossing them. I recommend this product!
