Tuvunu Greek Mountain Tea
Greek Mountain Tea or “Sideritis” is one of the most aromatic and beneficial indigenous herbs of the Mediterranean. Here at Tuvunu we decided to make it available for the very first time as a healthy, all natural ready to drink beverage that can be enjoyed throughout the year, cold or hot, anywhere in the world.
So we combined the wisdom of Hippocrates with one of our grandmothers’ favorite recipes that was typically boiled and enjoyed hot in the winter, to create a new healthy beverage that can be enjoyed during the summer: Iced Greek Mountain Tea with fresh squeezed lemons, wildflower honey and brown sugar that’s ready to drink anytime, anywhere. That’s Tuvunu!
And although the process appears quite simple, over three years of extensive research and in-house taste testing revealed a number of secrets that allow Tuvunu to highlight Greek Mountain Tea’s natural flavor and distinctive aroma. The dried flowers are brought to a slow boil in the ice cold water that comes to us from the natural springs Rhodope Mountains in Thrace. During this process, TUVUNU’s unique aroma emerges almost immediately, due to the activation of the plant’s natural oils at the start of the heating process; shortly thereafter, when the tea reaches a boil, the beneficial flavonoids are released from the plant’s tissue, which gives our all-natural beverage its characteristic color. No additives are used, except for Greek wildflower honey and lemon juice that we squeeze fresh on our premises, with lemons sourced exclusively from the citrus groves of southern Greece.
Tuvunu: Bringing the best of Greece to you!
Tuvunu was founded upon a simple premise: Since Greece has been blessed with some of the world’s finest herbs, fruit and natural spring water, a combination of these key ingredients would inevitably result in the world’s finest soft drinks and
TUVUNU’s corporate philosophy is just as simple: Everything we produce must be good for our customers, our growers and the environment. And since we’re a family owned and operated company, it’s especially important for us to be part of a healthy, eco-friendly and prosperous community. That's why we've embarked on an innovative contractual farming program with our growers in Macedonia and Thrace and use only locally sourced teas, herbs and fruit in all our beverages. And there are never any artificial additives or preservatives in any of our products; ever.
Furthermore, we have committed ourselves to reducing Tuvunu’s carbon footprint to a bare minimum, through the use of 99.9% recyclable aluminum containers for all our products, our innovative “green” pricing policy and strict adherence to our “paperless” office management guidelines.
Tuvunu’s signature beverage combines all natural Greek Mountain Tea (Sideritis) with fresh squeezed lemons, wildflower honey and a hint of brown cane sugar in a uniquely refreshing soft drink that can be enjoyed year round, chilled or hot.
We're certain that one taste will have you convinced that “Nothing compares ...Tuvunu!” and hope that you’ll enjoy our products as much as we do, each and every day!
