Olive leaf (Olea europaea spp. Microcarpa alba)
This tea has been enjoyed by ancient Greek civilisations since olives were first cultivated. Tender, young leaves and spring buds are dried naturally to preserve their nutritional value. Apart its great flavour, Olive leaf tea also has detoxifying and healing properties, and is exceptionally rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, providing an anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal boost. It’s great for colds, flu and infections, but also contains oleuropein, a unique phenolic compound that has been found to have therapeutic effects for many conditions including high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s and heart disease.
