Olive leaf tea has been enjoyed since the ancient times, in Greece and around the Mediterranean, as a full-flavoured,
antioxidant and extremely healthy beverage. The olive leaf is a proven rich source of oleuropein, hydroxytyrosol as well as several other polyphenols and flavonoids, among the most powerful antioxidants and immunostimulators.
Our Notio Olive Leaf Tea is a very special and unique product with a smooth, aromatic and a slightly bitter delicious taste. It is produced from the dried leaves of our sustainably grown olive trees, as well as the thick forests of wild olive trees in our family-owned estate in Kalamata, Greece.
At the Notio οlive grove, we hand-pick selected new and tender leaves from our trees during late February through mid-May, in the morning hours, once the dews have dried.
We naturally air dry the leaves for approximately four weeks, and keep them away from direct sunlight, so as to preserve their nutritional value. Then we pick every single leaf by hand, remove the stalks, slice, weigh, and pack without any mechanical means.
A full teaspoon (about 2 g) of dried olive leaves, makes 2-3 cups of olive leaf tea. Place the leaves in hot – not boiling – water. The leaves take a while to infuse (from 10 to 15 minutes). Strain and enjoy your healthy beverage, hot or refrigerated for an equally lovely iced tea.
