Our Wild Thyme Honey comes from a single species of thyme that grows wild in a small area of the rugged and remote Central Otago Mountains located in the South Island of New Zealand. Introduced to the country during the gold rush of the 1800’s by Chinese miners, every October and November the side of the mountains are a mass of vivid purple thyme flowers and the air is filled with the amazing fragrance given off by this herb. This is the time of year when our bees produce Wild Thyme Honey.


Our Wild Thyme Honey is one of New Zealand’s strongest flavoured honeys with a flavour that is intense, aromatic and distinctively herbal. Our Wild Thyme Honey works perfectly as an ingredient in many recipes, including marinades, stews and salad dressings. Wild Thyme Honey from New Zealand is often described as having a sweeter, fresher and more distinct taste, when compared to others from Europe. The honey is a beautiful caramel colour, with an intense herbal aroma and a thick, smooth texture.


New Zealand Honey Co. Wild Thyme Honey is a valuable source of dietary antioxidant. Wild Thyme Honey is special as it contains one of the highest antioxidant activity ratings in the world, three to four times higher than other honeys. Antioxidants are important for neutralising the harmful free radicals in our bodies, and in doing so they help to defend against ageing and disease.


Thyme is a popular cooking herb, so it follows that wild thyme honey is perfect to use in meat jus’s and marinades due to its herbal, aromatic flavour and natural sweetness from the nectar. It also makes a perfect addition to exotic stews such as Moroccan lamb tagine, due to its strong flavor. Our Wild Thyme Honey also pairs perfectly with salty cheeses, such as feta, and also goes beautifully with cheese scones.

Delicious honey and smooth transaction

I am a returning customer, it is my second purchase from this company. Excellent customer service and great product! Thyme is a very aromatic herb. Now just imagine the honey from it! The very moment you open the jar you can smell the unique fragrance and later taste the strong flavored honey. Would recommend to my relatives and friends and buy again in the future.

I'm a real fan of honey and am always interested in trying different types

I'm a Canadian and was recently in New Zealand for five weeks. We loved our time in your country. I purchased a bottle of your Thyme Honey from a supermarket in Queenstown. I'm a real fan of honey and am always interested in trying different types of honey on our world travels. The reason I chose your thyme honey is that one of my favourite honeys for many years is a Greek honey called Attiki which is imported into Canada and until recently was labelled as thyme honey. It is also quite thick as is your Thyme honey. I was amazed the unique floral scent and taste of your thyme honey and though it was totally different than the Greek honey it was so good that just before we flew home from Auckland I called your company to ask where I could buy some more in Auckland to take back to Canada with me. I tried a couple of the Auckland New World supermarkets that your office recommended as sources for your honey but unfortunately had no luck finding any. So I was very pleased when I got home and found that I was able to order it from your website and that you would actually ship to Canada. My two bottles arrived a few days ago and I will covet them :-). The other evening though I was having a cup of jasmine tea and it suddenly occurred to me that that jasmine is the floral quality that I was tasting in your Thyme honey. When I compare the actual scent of thyme leaves from my spice rack with the honey I'm not noticing any similarity but I have no idea what actual thyme flowers smell like which I suppose is what the bees are using. Anyway, just an observation but it is a wonderfully distinct floral honey and is my new favourite. All the best.

Thank you for the Thyme Honey. One jar for me, and two more for presents to family as a reminder of a trip to Queenstown. Beautiful tasting product, with modern clean packaging which was good for gifting. Easy to order online and fast delivery too. Will be back for more.
