Between mid May and early June, Greek wild thyme comes into full bloom dressed in its vivid, coruscating purple gown beneath our olive trees in Andros island. That is when we pick it by hand and make sure 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, we manage to retain its intense aroma, slightly spicy taste and valuable nutrients to their fullest.
Greek Wild-Grown Herbs
Thyme Leaves & Flowers
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 relieving upper respiratory and throat ailments (colds and coughs) and gastrointestinal problems (stomachache and flatulence).
Even a small amount is enough for great taste results. Before adding the herb to your dish or tea, rub the leaves and 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
