Wild thyme is the garb plant for this special honey delicacy. With a long flowering period from May to October, wild thyme is a dream for every bee colony and the bees reward us with a very special honey specialty.
The color of thyme honey is light to amber and its taste is intense with a fine herbal nuance. As soon as you open the honey, you will perceive the aroma of the Mediterranean summer.
Its taste is sweet and pleasant with a high concentration of fructose. Thyme honey is also a blossom honey, but its taste is a bit bitter than that of other blossom honeys.
Due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, thyme honey is one of the most valuable honeys and has been valued in natural medicine since ancient times. Greek thyme honey is rich in carbohydrates, which we find mainly in the form of glucose and fructose, while at the same time being high in pollen grains.
Its nutritional value is high because it contains a large proportion of minerals and trace elements such as copper, magnesium, calcium, silicon, zinc, manganese, iron and boron. In addition, thyme honey contains valuable antioxidants, mainly flavonoids, which help protect our body and cells from free radicals. The proportion of essential oils is also higher than in other types of honey.
Our thyme honey comes from Greece from our beekeeper friend Asterios. Asterios transports its bees to remote locations in Galaxidi, Grammatiko, and the island of Kea. There, the busy bees, far away from people and pollution, collect fine, single-variety thyme honey.
There are many who consider thyme honey to be the most delicious honey found in Greek nature. And the truth is, who can wrong them? Golden amber color, summer aromas and unmatched taste complete the delicious range of properties of thyme honey. This humble plant, growing in the driest places with minimal requirements, gives one of the most famous honeys in Greece.
The properties of thyme honey make it an ideal choice for any category of consumer. In particular, athletes, children and those who are intensely mentally active, such as B. Students should include this in their daily diet.
For our beekeeper friend Asterios, the production of innovative, high quality honey is a top priority. Of course, this completely rules out the use of antibiotics and pesticides. The honey is filtered using traditional and natural methods (natural clarification in barrels). Without thermal or other treatment, Asterios produces completely natural and unprocessed honey, which retains its natural consistency and taste and guarantees that all the valuable ingredients of the honey are retained. The standards and practices of organic beekeeping are consistently implemented. And you can taste it!
