We found wild thyme at Mimi’s preschool and took it home and made some tea. The pictures tell the story. Enjoy!
Wild thyme growing at Mimi’s preschool
You use the flowers for tea and the leaves for cooking.
The fragrance is unbelievable. Best smell ever.
We didn’t have a bag.
Flowers rinsed and ready for some hot water.
Steam! We didn’t have any tea filters so we just threw the flowers right in.
Scoop the flowers out and drink!
