Known as Hippophaes in Greece (pronounced "e-pof-i-es"), it means “bright horse”. This amazing native herb, a virtual superfood, earned its moniker in the days of Alexander the Great (circa 350 BC), from the reviving effects it had when he and his men would feed it to horses that were wounded in battle.

Tea

I have tried three different herbal teas from Kilo and I am a very satisfied customer. I have over the years bought and tried lots of different herbal teas and always end up not finishing the box.I just kind of get bored or just don't feel drawn to the product. Not so with these. They are excellent. I have tried the Mountain tea, Lemon Verbena, and of course the Sea Buckthorn. I don't have a favorite. They are all top shelf and I look as forward to my pot of daily tea as I do for my morning coffee. Most folks reading this will know what that means. Good stuff, don't miss out, all get 5 stars, order some you won't regret it. Also customer service could not be better and there honey is the best I have ever tasted.
