What is Black Mountain Tea?
Each of the 15+ seasonal herbs is hand-picked, dried and carefully combined into the unique Black Mountain ‘Elixir’ blend to create a wonderfully flavoured herbal tea with unique health giving properties.
The man behind the tea is 68 yr old Miloje Knezevic, who has been researching and collecting the herbs and flowers native to the Montenegrian Mountains for almost 40 years. In those years he has cultivated a passion for not only for making the highest quality herbal tea blends, but for learning and understanding the specific health benefits of each and every ingredient used in them. This desire also led him to want to discover the most pure and untouched wild harvests of each plant, which he found in the remote hills and mountains of his home country Montenegro – a highly mountainous and sparcely populated country, where natural springs have created mini oases of perfectly culvtivated herbs, far away from pollution or human interference, and with the riches of the vibrant soil, pure mountain spring water and consistent mediterranean sun.
How to Enjoy Your Tea?
Black Mountain Tea can be enjoyed as a hot drink alternative to tea and coffee, or as a sweet iced-tea beverage to be consumed throughout the day in place of juice or soft-drinks. To get the most enjoyment and health benefit from it, here are a few personal tips & recommendations from Miloje, the man who’s been expertly picking & preparing it for years…
- A medium pinch of leaves (generous tea-spoon) is enough to make a nice cuppa for one or two.
- Cover the cup or leave the teapot with lid on, and let tea brew for at least 5minutes to get a full flavour.
- If you prefer a smoother taste to your tea, try adding a small tea-spoon of organic honey and stir well. (But don’t use sugar or sweeteners.)
- ICE TEA!? As an alternative to fruit juice or cordial, try preparing a triple quantity of B.M Tea, adding a little honey and then after brewing and cooling, leave to chill in a fully covered jug or closed bottle, to be enjoyed throughout the day.
