Sideritis tea (Herba, sideritis, scardica) has a long-time tradition in European culture, being classified as a caffeine–free tea used for physical stresses. If we see the effects and the benefits of this tea for human health, there are required more in-depth analyses to explain correctly main components of this plant and use them for specific purposes. At present, Siteritis tea, known as forest tea, is trying to be substituted with an extract taken from this medicinal plant. Which method will be used for extraction, depends on the field of use of extraction. Based on the structure of the leaves and the flowers of this plant, the easiest method would be percolation extraction, but to reach maximum values of the main components of this raw material, it is preferable to use extraction by maceration, where we can better control the technologic process during extraction, by changing any of the factors that affect the extraction process, or by advancing another factor for a complete technologic process, and on the other side to grow the extraction coefficient. The content of basic substances of more than 20 types of etheric oils, makes this type of extract to be one of the most advanced extracts used in the pharmaceutic industry.
