THE EXCEPTIONALLY REFINED MIXING
During June-August most of the bees in Crete are transferred to the thymes, which cover most of the Cretan land. Later, when the bees are transferred to the pines, the honeycombs are filled up with the thyme wreaths. The first harvest of these bees comes from this mix and is known as Pefkothimaromelo, or Thyme & Pine Honey.
