Raw Thyme Honey has a herbal aroma with hints of intense spice and floral undertones. It's medium to mildly sweet. The smooth sweetness is followed by a pleasant aftertaste of tangy herbs.
Our raw thyme honey comes from the soft slopes of Greek mountains, where bees feed on thyme herb (Thymus Vulgaris) and wildflowers during a brief time in spring.
Thyme has been around for ages and is known by many names:
Botanical Name - Thymus Vulgaris, Thymus Serpyllum
English - Wild Thyme, Mother of Thyme, Shepherd's Thyme
Arabic - (Zaatar) زَعْتَر
The thyme herb held a deep cultural, spiritual, and medicinal significance for ancient Greeks who used it as a pain reliever. Ancient Egyptians were also very fond of thyme and used to inhale it to improve respiratory function, digestion memory, and mindfulness.
Thyme is a resilient herb that can survive in hot climates. It belongs to the Thymus family which falls in the same family as mint and sage. Thyme honey is produced during a small window in mid-spring to early summer when the plant blooms. Because bees that feed on thyme produce less honey, raw thyme honey is considered specialty honey
