There’s only one flavor this distinct.

Thyme
(thymus vulgaris)
Thyme, Whole

Spicy with a minty edge, thyme adds a distinctive flavor to food, becoming even more complex when blended with other herbs.

We source our Spice Islands® thyme from Spain because of its rich flavor. Its quality is marked by gray-green leaves and the absence of stem pieces.

Dried thyme can be substituted for fresh in most dishes. But the flavor is more potent, so use roughly a third as much as you ordinarily would.

Thyme releases its flavor gradually, so add it early in the cooking process.

Fun Fact: Thyme was introduced to England by the Romans in the Middle Ages. But the cold English climate never produced the signature flavor of Mediterranean thyme.

Our Thyme is only thyme. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
