Sale price Price $ 6.00 Regular price

In the unique island of Andros, ena ena Greek Wild Thyme grows naturally in our olives groves, scattered around and in complete harmony with our olive trees. We monitor all the stages of its life cycle, ensuring its superior quality and nutritional value. Thyme’s flowers and leaves are collected by hand one by one, ensuring the protection of the plant and the ecosystem of the region and are carefully dried by natural methods without undergoing any processing, retaining their intense aroma and slightly spicy taste.

Thyme has a pungent and distinctive aroma and a piney and peppery taste with bitter, slightly lemony and mint notes. It is quite flavorful and blends well with other herbs and spices. Thyme brings out the flavor of meat and poultry dishes, pairs well with tomato-based sauces and is an excellent garnish for roasted vegetables. Its strong and bitter taste requires a minimum amount for the maximum effect.

Thyme is well known for its great antioxidant, digestive, anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties. Brewing thyme into a powerful tea is the best way to achieve relief from upper-respiratory and throat ailments, such as colds and coughs or from gastrointestinal problems, such as stomachache and flatulence. It also has a number of household uses, such as keeping away moths from linens and beetles from the garden. The aromatic odor is released by rubbing, prior to any use.
