Tea from olive leaf powder is still little known, although the beneficial properties of the olive itself and the oil is known to most people. Since the 1960s, tea from olive leaves has been scientifically researched, and there are now many positive testimonials about the effect of the ingredients of the olive leaf.
The active ingredient in the leaves of the olive tree is called iridoids, one of which is oleuropein and is the substance that makes the leaves bitter, because with it the olive tree protects itself from damage by insects and bacteria. It thus strengthens the resistance of the tree. Oleuropein is particularly concentrated in olive leaves.
The leaves are cut by hand, hung to dry in a shady, airy place, where they remain for 4 to 8 weeks.
The tea has a pleasant mild, aromatic, slightly bitter, 'green' taste. The brewed tea has a golden yellow color and an almost imperceptible sweetness.
