In the picturesque island of Andros, wild thyme flourishes on the rocky terrain beneath olive trees. It comes into full bloom between mid May and early June, dressed in its vivid, coruscating purple gown. We pick it by hand to preserve critical foliage and flower on the plant, so that we may enjoy it in blossom for years to come. By drying it naturally in optimal conditions, we retain its intense color and aroma, spicy taste and antioxidant and antibacterial properties to their fullest.
Greek Wild-Grown Herbs
In Greek cuisine, thyme is added as a spice in meatballs, stuffed vegetables, meat, poultry, fish and pies.
Thyme is a basic ingredient in herbal teas for its great antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It is well known for relieving upper respiratory and throat ailments and gastrointestinal problems.
Even a small amount is enough for great taste results. Before adding the herb to your dish or tea, rub the flowers, so that all flavors and essential oils are released.
100% natural, wild-grown, dried naturally, free of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, additives or enhancers, rich in flavor and essential oils
