thyme

for all you tea drinkers out there, common thyme (thymus vulgaris) actually makes a really nice tea. they sell it as tea in Lithuania (just loose, dried thyme, but the package says for seasoning or tea), and I was surprised to find that I really like it. anyway, just thought I'd let you know :)

  1. Hmmm... I may have to give that a try. Just hope I don't have to go all the way to Lithuania to find it. :)

  2. well, if you have to go to Lithuania to find thyme, I think there may be something wrong with where you are :) I had just never heard of thyme being used for tea until going to Lithuania :) But as far as I know, it's just simple thyme like you'd buy in any store as a dried seasoning. The package I have says the following (in Lithuanian):

    "Fitting to prepare tea and other drinks, for salads, soups, sauces, vegetable and farmers' cheese dishes, to season deserts."
