About this product
Yet another member of the diverse mint family, thyme is a uniquely fragrant herb which has been commonly used for a variety of culinary purposes. Historically, however, thyme’s use dates back much farther than its first appearance in the kitchen. Ancient Egyptians employed thyme for embalming, and in Medieval Europe, placing thyme under your pillow was thought to ward off evil. Today, when not added to a spice collection, thyme leaves are used to provide an aromatic and flavorful cup of thyme tea.
Adding thyme tea to your routine is not only a great way to treat yourself with a delicious herbal tea, but it also provides you with a convenient source of vitamins and minerals. Thyme is known as an exceptional source of vitamins A, C, E & K, as well as folic acid. Its minerals include high amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and copper, with lesser amounts of even more. Among the more than thirty constituents found in thyme are important micronutrients like amino acids, beta carotene, essential fatty acids, protein, and a high amount of fiber.
