Our fragrant Taurus Mountain Thyme grows wild in the Taurus Mountains of central Turkey. A rare variety originally transplanted from the Himalayas, it has a vibrant green hue and an earthy, savory aroma and flavor that's perfect for meat rubs and roasted vegetables.
Adding the Taurus Mountain Thyme to our seasonal lineup is actually the result of a happy accident — there was a mix-up, and our partners in Turkey shipped us this wonderful thyme varietal instead of our usual (and much-loved) Flowering Hyssop Thyme. As soon as we tasted it, we loved it and wanted to share it with yo
Taurus Mountain Thyme is grown in the area known as the Middle Taurus Mountains, between Mersin and Hatay, further west from where our Flowering Hyssop Thyme is grown. This thyme grows well in the high plateaus of the mountains, where the temperature gets very hot with little rainfall during the summer. The thyme seeds are typically planted between March and May and harvested in July and August.
Every spice I have ordered is exceptional
I do a lot of cooking and now that I've found Burlap and Barrel I've been replacing my older spices and buying all new because of the quality from B&B. You can definitely smell and taste the difference of every spice. The cinnamon far exceeds any cinnamon I've ever used. I buy Burlap and Barrel as gifts - the spices are so good, they are gift worthy.
Bright, Fresh Flavor
I love this thyme. It's bright and citrusy. Very fresh. Excellent in roasted tomatoes and on other roasted vegetables. Lovely in scrambed eggs and in pan sauces. I even add it to buttered popcorn.
Excellent as Always
Wonderful!! I use it in so many dishes and it tastes like I picked the thyme myself which I grow, as well, as delicious!!
Spices for kids
