Greek Sage Tea, known as “Faskomilo” in Greece (pronounced “fahs KOM ee low”) has been long valued for its health benefits. There are many varieties of Sage found around the world. The Greek variety, “Salvia fruticosa”, is adapted to the rocky mountainous terrain of Greece and is extremely aromatic, bearing virtually no resemblance to the Sage that is found in North America. We believe it is the highest quality sage found anywhere in the world.

Tasting Notes: Very aromatic, earthy, slightly savory with menthol notes and a very clean finish

Brewing sage produces an aromatic, soothing and stimulating tea with a warm flavor and a slight astringency. A word of caution for the uninitiated, our Sage tea can be very strong and perhaps is an acquired taste. A bit of raw honey softens the edges and adds another health dimension to this “superdrink”.


Pot method: Bring water to a boil, remove from heat, add a small handful of Sage leaves. Cover and allow to steep for approximately 3-7 minutes. Pour through a strainer into your cup and enjoy!

Infuser method: Bring water to a boil, add a small handful of Sage leaves to the infuser of your choice, pour hot water over the infuser and allow to steep for approximately 5-7 minutes, remove infuser and enjoy!

Be careful, as Sage can become bitter if allowed to steep to long. Best to start with less steeping and experiment. Sweeten with raw honey.

The freshest sage tea,

This sage tea is like no other on the market. The aroma of sage just fills the room and it tastes so good. I make sure I always have a bag in the house. When I make this tea, everyone knows what it is.

Don't pass on this tea!

I first fell in love with "faskomilo" on a chilly winter day in Kalymnos many years ago, and enjoyed it regularly during my years in Greece. Klio Tea's whole leaf sage tea is BETTER than any I drank in Greece. I've been buying it for a couple of years now; I drink it year round, both hot and iced, usually unsweetened but sometimes with honey. It's like two teas in one: If made light it is almost floral and delicate, if made dark it is robust and resinous. Highly recommended.

Great Taste w/ Benefits

Yeah, so someone told me a story [ a great story] of regained healthy life. So i decided to give it a try, and found a great tasting beverage. i like it w/ a small spoon of honey, but it really has an interesting flavoe all on its own

Potent but the flavor gets old

This is definitely some powerful tea. The flavor is something I can only stand once a day at most. It is a really strong sage flavor similar to how you would expect in some high quality sausage. The Greek sage tea was a nice change up. I highly recommend this for sage lovers and I super recommend the Greek mountain tea for the overall tea lovers who may not be interested in the sage ;)
