I am a second generation Greek. Part of me comes from the metropolis of Athens, while another part of me comes from the foot hills of ancient Kalamata. I grew up respecting Greek traditions and apprecating its values, especially when it comes to health and remedies. After all, these are remedies that have been developed, tested, and perfected over thousands of years using a variety of wild herbs that grow to the fullest potential in the Mediterranean climate.

One of my favorite stories my mother told me was about my great grandmother.

My great grandmother would tell the older women who were single to come to her house and she would give them Λουιζα (similar to Lemon Verbena Tea) for loosing weight. She would give them the tea to take home and drink, so they would lose weight and attract a husband.

Another story was about my grandfather. His doctor told him he had a kidney stone too large to pass and would require surgery. Instead, my great grandmother gave him Αγριάδα (Burr Tea) daily for a couple of weeks and remarkably he passed it even though it was huge! He was so relieved he saved the stone and took it with him to church that Sunday and proudly showed it to everyone including the astonished doctor.

I grew up in this atmosphere of folklore, fascinated with the possiblities, learning those traditional secrets that have been perfected and passed down to me through countless generations.

I pass onto you now this rich knowledge in the form of the various remedies on Therapitea.com.

I go to Greece at the end of every summer season to visit the top herb farms and hand pick the best quality herbs I can find. Those wonderful herbs that grow in their natural Mediterranean climate are packed with potent nutrients much more than anything grown in artificial greenhouses, so you know you are getting the most effective teas. The special tea blends I offer you are formulated to enhance the potency of the herbs to treat specific ailments and promote wellness throughout your body and mind.

At Therapitea.com, I use tea therapy to offer personal wellness programs to treat various ailments and to boost mental and physical wellness. I also offer corporate wellness programs to improve employee health, energy, and wellbeing at the office with minimal effort.


Cris has a personal, caring relationship with all of her regular clients because she loves helping them with the perfect tea for their health

The only place I buy my tea. Cris shares with her customers a wealth of knowledge about the various tea and their health benefits. With the newly added tea selection directly from Greece one feels like there in the Mediterranean. The Greek pastries are also worth the visit, they are delicious.
