The wine has a long history that dates back to at least 6000 BC, thought to have originated in the current territories of Georgia, Turkey or Iran. It is believed that its appearance in Europe occurred approximately 6,500 years ago, in present-day Bulgaria or Greece. It was very common in ancient Greece and Rome. Wine has played an important role in several religions since ancient times. The Greek god Dionysus and the Roman god Bacchus represented wine and it still plays a central role in Christian and Jewish religious ceremonies such as the Eucharist and the Kidush.

THE TWO MAIN PRINCIPLES OF OUR HERBAL PRODUCTION: DO NOT FORCE nature to produce more than would be expected from a given plant, as this, despite obtaining larger quantities, has an associated qualitative cost. DO NOT FORCE the processing of plants. When strength, although faster and more practical, also has an associated qualitative cost. Thus, our production is made by offering plants only the water and nutrients they really need, avoiding excesses. On the other hand, the drying and processing, is done in a solar dryer, so that the quality remains and reduce to the maximum the environmental impact. OUR ENTIRE PRODUCTION IS CERTIFIED IN ORGANIC PRODUCTION MODE. Our herbs are organically cultivated here, in our garden, in front of the tea house. We try to respect the nature’s harvest timing, in order to ensure a higher quality of our herbs. Every Thursday we carry out a free guided tour of our herbal production. If you wish to learn more, you can schedule with our tea house staff.
Our herbs can be consumed dried or fresh. Pick an herb, do you own mix or choose one of our mixes.
