Description

A beautiful selection of three of our most popular artisan Greek honeys. 

Includes Pine, Thyme and Fir honeys.

Raw, natural, unpasteurised and incredibly tasty.

Antibacterial, coarse-filtered, unheated, enzyme-rich and all natural.  

This set of raw Greek honey is brought to us by Thomas and his family. Thomas is a young Greek beekeeper, who is planning to take over his family's hives, which are in secluded forest glades in and around mountains of central Greece. He has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.

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.

Thomas' Raw Thyme honey is another beautiful raw honey from our Greek beekeeper, Thomas and his family.  It has a mild and grassy foretaste like dry mountain herbs (You can really taste the thyme!), breaking into a large, fruity flavour similar to sweet and sour summer fruits such as raspberries and red currants, then dissipating quickly to a mild and clean finish.  Very slight overnotes of the soft sweetness of fennel or aniseed without the strong flavour of liquorice. Strong hints of Greek mountain tea (Ironwort or Shepherd's tea).

Thomas' Raw Greek Fir honey Awarded the coveted Quality Gold Award by the 2019 London Honey Quality Competition. It starts with a mild nuttiness then explodes into a bold, juicy sweetness with hints of savoury herbs and a slight sourness in the aftertaste, similar to the sourness experienced at the end of blackstrap molasses. The taste lingers sweetly on the palate for a good time.

It has a grassy, herbaceous aroma lingering within the honey. There is a sweetness mild and green somewhat similar to fennel or winter savoury.

This Fir tree honey is harvested from altitudes of at least 1500 metres on a mountain close to Argithea in Greece.

It is a dark thick runny honey. Fir is known as a honeydew, because it is from the sap and resin of the tree not from flower nectar.  Honeydews are high in oligosaccharides, which are known for their prebiotic qualities- aiding digestion.

Please know that raw honey does crystallise 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.

The order arrived promptly and well packaged. The honey itself is very tasty and so different (in a good way) to what you buy in supermarkets. I would highly recomend this product. It would also make a fantastic healthy gift.
