Being so common as a culinary herb, Thyme is often overlooked as a traditional ingredient for many minor complaints. Recognising this plants potential Indigo Herbs brings you this lovely aromatic herb in the form of Thyme Leaf Tea to enjoy all its beneficial qualities. Not only can this ingredient be considered traditionally medicinal, it also has many interesting esoteric and magical uses that were prevalent throughout ancient Europe.

Thyme was used by the Egyptians as part of the embalming procedure to mummify the dead whereas the ancient Greeks used to burn the herb to purify their temples. This directly links with the meaning of the common name in Greek was ‘thymos’, meaning smoke or spirit. Among other attributes given to Thyme was the property of giving someone courage which was also a given character of the plant in medieval England. During the medieval period maidens would present scarves embroidered with the pattern of Thyme to their favourite knights so they wouldn't be over come with fear in battle. It was the Romans though who popularised this herb throughout Europe for its culinary uses. Other interesting esoteric characteristics include putting a sprig of Thyme under ones pillow to ward off nightmares and putting the herb in a coffin to confer the spirit swiftly to the next life.

Being a very small plant Thyme is well suited to being a ground cover herb with species being very low and spreading. Generally they grow to a height of around 8 inches in height and have small white to purple flowers. It is extremely aromatic with many of the species being bred for different tastes. These can especially be seen in the case of Lemon Thyme.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Pour a cup of boiling water onto 2 tsp of the dried herb and let infuse for l0 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day.

Serving:

2g per one cup of boiling water, 3 times a day 

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Gluten free.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Thyme Leaf Tea hails from Spain and is grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under strict supervision and the soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves are separated from the root and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

Avoid in the conditions of epilepsy, pregnancy and high blood pressure.
