Highly regarded in Greece for it's healing properties.
The colour of thyme honey is light amber to amber when liquid, beige to brown when it is crystallized, it is a very strong, intensely aromatic honey. The taste is persistent, lingering in the mouth. It crystallizes spontaneously in a short time into medium or fine grains.
Wild thyme is found in the wild in dry, rocky Mediterranean regions, in the high altitude of the mountains of Greece. Because thyme grows wild it is usually organic in nature although there are no certification standards in place.
