Thyme (Thymus Folia) is an aromatic herb native to the Mediterranean region, although it can also be found in other areas of the world today. It is part of the mint family Lamiaceae.
Thyme has a strong, herby, and penetrating scent, as well as an aromatic, dry, and minty flavour.
Various ancient Mediterranean peoples associated thyme with courage, valour, and strength. It was thought that inhaling it would inspire courage.
It was used by the Romans to add flavour to various foods and beverages, like cheese and liqueurs. In medieval times, Thyme was often associated with fairies, who were said to be greatly attracted by this herb.
