Antibacterial raw mountain oak honey from 900 metres plus.
Very thick honey that sits solidly on the tongue, taking a moment to melt away.

Thomas' Raw Greek Mountain Oak honey has a deliciously rich and mineral treacle flavour with hints of cooked apples and plums.  The aftertaste lingers only briefly with a slight sourness.  The aroma is similarly fruity, reminding us of cold spiced fruit sauces.  The flavour and aroma make us think this could go very well with a fruitcake or Christmas pudding.

This Mountain Oak comes from a forest that grows on a mountain round a lake close to a place called Rentina.

Colour: It's very dark, nearly black, with a slight hint of purple.

About the beekeeper: It was brought to us by Thomas, a young Greek beekeeper, who is planning to take over his father's hives, which are in secluded forest glades. He has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.

More on honeydew honey: This is a dark thick runny honey – it 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 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.

Deliciously thick

Another delicious honeydew honey. This has layers of character and keeps developing on the palate. Delicious on hot buttered crumpets where this thick honey just melts into the holes.
