What our Customers Say
Thyme honey has a distinctive strong flavour; you can almost taste the thyme oils in it.... I have been growing up with various types of honey as my granddad is a beekeeper, but never experienced thyme honey. It is amazing really! Lucia
The whole family enjoy the thyme honey, it has a thick consistency and lovely amber colour with a bonus of the odd few pieces of honeycomb from the hive, which my 9-year-old absolutely loves. The fact that it is raw and pure makes it even better as we found that treated honeys all taste the same. The thyme honey is amazing used in avocado chocolate mousse recipes and lovely in a lemon and apple cider vinegar drink that we take each morning. Jayne

My favourite raw honey is thyme. This is because it helps me with the winter cough it has actually helped me stop coughing. Also my children like it as well. The texture and smell of the honey is lovely. Mel
Please know that raw honey does crystalise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to wikipedia.
