Description

Raw, Natural, Unpasteurised and Incredibly Tasty.

From Thomas and his family of artisan beekeepers.

Therapeutic Honeys. High in Minerals & Antioxidants. Naturally Antibacterial, Unfiltered and Enzyme Rich

Includes:  1kg Raw Thyme & 1kg Raw Fir Honey

Produced and harvested in the mountainous areas of Thessaly region of Greece.

This selection is a wonderful mix of raw honeys from mountains and forests - all unfiltered and unheated. This selection has been put together to give the best possible taste experience of Greek honey, which is very highly regarded and follows an ancient beekeeping tradition right back to ancient Greece.

The honeys are brought to us by Thomas, a young Greek beekeeper, and his family which includes his father Giorgos and sister Elena. 

Thomas is planning to take over his father's hives, which are on the sides of mountains and in secluded forest glades. He has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.

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 m

Raw Greek Thyme Honey 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.

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.
