Raw Cretan thyme honey is unique in the world due to the peculiarity of Crete, where its rich endemic flora and the sea that surrounds the island, give the honey a special sweet taste, special aroma, amber color and fine texture that give us well-being and pleasure. It has a high content of thyme pollen grains and iron, making it even more nutritious. Cretan Thyme Honey has a high level of polyphenols, phenolic acids, and has antioxidant, antimicrobial and healing properties.
The thyme plant (Thymbra capitata) is a small aromatic, Mediterranean shrub. To cope with adverse conditions, thyme produces fragrances and many other important protective substances, useful not only for the plant, but also for us! Crete is full of this plant, which thrives on the island and is thus the best ground for bees to produce an excellent quality honey. Our Cretan Thyme honey is collected from beehives in isolated locations at an altitude of 1100 meters on the Omalos plateau.
