What is Pyramid Thyme?

Pyramid thyme is an aromatic herb that has been central to the daily lives of Egyptians for thousands of years. This plant with its distinctive pleasant scent is used every day in great celebrations and to flavor food.

Since ancient Egypt, thyme has been able to withstand changing environments and adapt to all types of climates, from severe drought to irrigation schemes. It has never lost its bewitching smell and taste. It is for these reasons that it is the Egyptian thyme that I selected among the hundreds of listed species.

David Vanille's choice: I chose the pyramid thyme for its exceptional aroma. It is sufficient on its own and that is why I offer it to you in the simplest way possible! It can of course be used in the composition of aromatic plant mixtures, but used alone, it is perfectly suited to savory or sweet cooking.

Difference with other varieties of thyme

I could have chosen another variety of thyme, one that grows on the French Mediterranean coast. But during my trip to Egypt, I was charmed by its particular smell. So it is the thyme of the Pyramids that I propose to you.

"As for the parterre, it offered a thousand designs of thyme, which plays the same role as boxwood at home; in balls, in pyramids, in embroidery, it is thyme that always frames the tribes of flowers and the sandy paths." - Events and adventures in Egypt in 1839 - Scipio Martin

A belief confers it aphrodisiac powers in the making of love filters..
