Originating from the Mediterranean, thyme was bought to New Zealand during the gold rush of the 1800s by miners who used the herb for medicinal purposes. The hot, dry summers and freezing winters of Central Otago have enabled wild thyme to flourish. The closer you get to the lilac-coloured haze covering the hills, the more intense the beautiful aroma of thyme’s powerful essential oils.
