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.
I swear cause I'm not a bot.
I ******* love this ****.
Tasted of thyme! Also love the Royal Cinnamon!
Looking forward to using it.
Haven't used it yet, but smells bright and grassy, just the way I like it. A great herb to have on hand.
Green Garlic Scapes
Although nice aroma, was tasteless.
Love my spices
I have purchased several spices from B&B and they all have a marvelous aroma and flavor. I will be back for more.
Very fresh & wonderful spice.
This thyme tastes like spring feels—bright, warm—and is absolutely delicious!
Perhaps I’m lucky, having wild thyme growing all over the yard. So this Taurus Mtn thyme has some competition. But it is clean, like pine, excellent on roast chicken, or local trout, or in red sauce. Very nice.
