Dittany was known in ancient Crete for as an stimulative loose herbal tea and named Erodas by the locals, which means youthful love. The young men would climb on steep slopes to collect it for their beloved ones as an act of love.
Dittany (Origanum dictamnus) is the most famous Cretan endemic plants and the only plant which grows only in Crete. It grows on steep cliffs, so its collection is dangerous. Apart from excellent herbal tea, this organic herbal infusion was known in ancient times for its healing qualities. It was considered the most effective local remedy for almost everything (sore throat, cough, menstrual cramps, aching stomach, hypertensive, diuretic, helps at child birth, cures wounds, etc.).
Also suitable for gastronomic experimentation.
