Wild Thyme tea
Wild Thyme tea has been used in Hunza over centuries as a medicinal herb which is very effective in treating Flu, sore throat, cough and stomach aches. It is a herb that grows on high altitude and is purely organic, people of Hunza specially visit pastures/meadows to collect tumuru, dry and store them.
In Hunza Cuisine, we use it in special herbal soup locally famous as Tumuru Dawdo. We brew Wild Thyme to make Wild Thyme tea, it is a herbal tea locally known as Tumuru Chai which now is a famous Hunza Herbal Tea in Gilgit-Baltistan. We do not grow thyme at homes and on fields rather we pick and store purely organic type thyme from Meadows.
