Why Choose Cretan Thyme Honey

Thyme Honey: A Taste of Cretan Tradition

Cretan Thyme Honey, a cherished treasure of the island, embodies the essence of tradition, purity, and wellness. Beekeeping in Crete boasts a rich history dating back to the Minoan period. Cretan mythology even features bees and honey prominently.

Thyme, a fragrant herb blanketing Crete's mountains, is the heart of Cretan honey. Thyme honey, harvested in August's warmth, is the primary variety. Other Cretan honeys include pine, orange, sage, and carob.
