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 Janicova
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
I love the flavour so much, its tastes a lot like orange blossom (neroli) essential oil smells. Sweet, light and refreshing. Emma Clarke
This Honey fills & ticks all the boxes for Me! It's clear, smooth and delicious to taste. Its flavour does remind me of the honeys of my childhood and does bring back memories of great tea times. It has all the healing properties I look for in honey and I look forward to carry on enjoying your product. This One is particularly DELICIOUS!!! Brigitte Williams
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 crystalize. This is a natural process that occurs due to high levels of natural glucose separating from naturally occurring water. For more information on why honey sets
