Thyme is an herb that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties and wonderful aroma. It is known for its earthy and spicy flavor, making it a favored ingredient in both culinary dishes and natural remedies.

What are the benefits of Organic Thyme Tea for your body?

Thyme tea offers a variety of benefits for your body and well-being. It is known for its soothing effect on colds and coughs, thanks to its natural expectorant and anti-inflammatory properties. So if you're feeling a bit flu, a warm cup of thyme tea could be just what you need. 

In addition, thyme tea is a great source of antioxidants and vitamins, which boost your immune system and help protect your body from harmful free radicals. It is also beneficial for digestive health and may even have a calming effect on your nervous system, helping to reduce stress and tension.

In addition, thyme also contains the substance 'Thymol'. Thymol is known for its antiseptic properties and is widely used in mouthwashes and antiseptic wipes. It is also used as a preservative in food and cosmetics due to its antimicrobial properties.

In terms of health benefits, thymol is recognized as an anti-infective agent, a topical anti-infective agent and an anti-fungal agent. (It's important to note that while thymol has these properties, its effectiveness may depend on its concentration and method of use.)

Dried Thyme vs. Fresh Thyme: What do you need to know?

You may be wondering what the difference is between dried thyme and fresh thyme and which one is best to use for making thyme tea. Both variants have their own characteristics:

Dried thyme: Dried thyme leaves are convenient and readily available. They have an intense flavor and aroma, making them perfect for making tea. Dried thyme retains its medicinal properties and is an excellent choice for thyme tea.

Fresh thyme: Fresh thyme has a slightly milder taste compared to dried thyme. It can produce a more refreshing and vibrant tea. If you have access to fresh thyme, you can certainly use it to make thyme tea.

Thyme is an herb that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties and wonderful aroma.

What is the benefit of Cut Thyme?​

At 'Het Kleinste Huis' we offer organic thyme tea in the form of chopped thyme. This means that the thyme leaves have been carefully cut to ensure optimal taste and aroma. The advantage of chopped thyme is that the essential oils and nutrients are better released during steeping, resulting in a more intense and refined taste experience.

Does Organic Thyme contain caffeine?

No, there is no caffeine in Thyme. This herbal tea consists of real oour and only Thyme, without additives. That's why thyme tea is also an excellent choice for anyone sensitive to caffeine or looking for a relaxing drink. You can enjoy thyme tea at any time of the day without worrying about the stimulating effects of caffeine.

Good quality Thyme, why is it important?

By choosing good quality thyme, you can be sure to get the maximum health benefits and flavor from your tea. You know when you have good quality Thyme, when it has a lot of fragrance and the color should not be dull. If the Thyme is not fresh, it will have almost no taste and that is a pity, because Thyme Tea has a wonderful fresh taste to enjoy.

Use Thyme Tea as a natural air freshener
