English or French Thyme – what’s your favorite?

In class the other day, a student asked about the thymes. “So many to choose from – which one is best?” she asked.

Well, I suppose I would go with the 2 most popular, what I call the “mother” thymes:

English, with dark green somewhat rounded leaves

French, with lighter colored, pointy leaves

The English thyme is more robust in flavor; the French a bit more soft.

French is what I like to dry as the flavor carries over quite well.
