Greek Thyme Honey From The Island of Rhodes
Thyme grows in the Aegean Island Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos, Tilos and Chalki, in amazing climate conditions with plenty of sunshine. Thyme flowers offer exquisite aroma and unique flavour to the honey.
Thyme honey is the most revered Greek honey, mainly because bees fed with thyme produce less honey, and relative rarity makes thyme honey expensive.
Greek beekeepers move their hives from one place to another depending on the season, so that bees can feed on various coloured plants, such as thyme, heather, chestnut flowers, pine, orange flowers, etc.
Therefore, in Greece there are specific varieties of honey, such as thyme, pine, etc.
This premium gourmet honey is known worldwide for its saturated taste with an intense herbal aroma and health beneficial properties.
Thyme honey is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals. It also helps with fever, tonsillitis and flu, suppresses allergic reactions and boosts immunity.
