Thyme is a perennial, woody herb that is original to the Mediterranean region and cultivated as an annual culinary herb in many places in the world. In the garden, this member of the mint family delights with its delicate and fragrant spreading foliage as a container plant or as a natural groundcover. The mild pepper-like flavor of thyme pairs beautifully with sharp and tangy cheeses, potatoes, rice and eggs. Thyme is also used to produce topical skin care formulations, as well as natural dental products. In combination with other herbs and flowers, thyme adds an unexpected flavor to tea blends.
