Description

Thomas' raw Greek pine honey is a unique type amongst the tree varieties, and is regarded as one of the best honey varieties available.  It has a strong, sweetly pine aroma with waxy, spiced overtones, similar to cloves or other warm, winter spices.  The flavour starts with a strong sweetness, which comes on very quickly with dark, dry fruit and prominent cooked fig flavour, finishing into a sweetness that lingers at the back of the throat. It would pair particularly well with white, creamy cheeses or a rich vanilla ice cream.

Colour: This particular honey is dark brown when runny, turning a lovely, creamy yellow when crystalised.

Where does the honey come from?: This variety of Greek pine honey comes from Papades, located on the island of Evia. This is a remote place renowned for its pine trees, natural beauty and preserved wilderness.

Pine Honey - Thomas - Agios Konstantinos

Who produces this honey?: This pine variety comes from the family of Thomas, who is planning to take over the family's hives, located in secluded forest glades. Thomas, who works with his family to tend bees and produce raw honey in the mountains of southern central Greece, has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.

What about the tree the honey comes from?: The pine tree is part of the conifer family, a resinous evergreen that can grow up to 80 metres in height. They generally live between 100 and 1000 years, sometimes even longer, the oldest one to date was found to be 4900 years old!

Common Uses: Pine honey is particularly good to use in Greek yoghurts, breads and ice cream, but perhaps best is to simply enjoy this delicious prized honey on its own.

Greek pine honey facts: Honey from pine trees has unique attributes - the bees love to feed on the liquid the aphids leave after they burrow into the bark and pine cones drinking the sweet tree sap.

 

Please know that raw honey does crystalise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to wikipedia.

Excellent honey!

I generally prefer a darker honeys but this is a lovely honey, nicely sweet with a slightly dry spiced pine flavour. My wife loves it and we've had it on ice-cream, toast, salad dressings and weve both taken it to help sooth sore throats. A really nice honey
