Thyme leaf is an aromatic member of the mint family, relative of oregano and yields a warm, slightly peppery flavor. It is especially common in Mediterranean and French cuisine and is an ingredient in the seasoning blend herbs de Provence. Thyme is a culinary staple added to tea blends, soups, stews, sauces and pairs especially well with eggs and cheese.
Thyme contains potent antioxidants and is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is packed with vitamin C and is also a good source of vitamin A, copper, fiber, iron, and manganese. Thyme's powerhouse of nutrients supports the immune, digestive, and respiratory systems to name a few. It even has positive mood-boosting effects.
