Super Active 21.5+ Active Raw Organic Mountain Oak honey
Very thick honey that sits solidly on the tongue, taking a moment to melt away.
Thomas' Artisan Raw Organic Greek Mountain Oak Honey: It 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.
Colour: It's very dark, nearly black, with a slight hint of purple.
What does "Active" mean in the product title?: We send some of our honeys to a lab for a "Total Activity test". This test measures the total antimicrobial activity of a honey. This is done by testing a solution of a honey on a lab plate against the Staph Aureus bacteria. the honey is graded according to the amount of bacteria that the honey solution kills. Generally the range that we see will be between 10 and 25 plus. This type of test is similar to the test used to grade Manuka Honey.
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.

Excellent honey, although for me the Greek pine honey which I'd bought previously just had the edge on taste. The flavour brings back happy memories of times spent in Greece. I'm intrigued by the activity rating - I hope that in addition to tasting good it will also help to prevent the worst of autumn sniffles!
Another great honey delivered with great service. Thanks to all the raw honey team.
Sweet fruity dream
Very deep,sweet and complex flavours roll over the tongue for some time with this honey, thick and substantial consistency with a top activity rating, recommended
Subtle and not as sweet overall very satisfied ty
First class Oak honey.
I’m biased when it comes to Oak honey’s as they have always been my preferred variety. The high ‘activity rating’ is important too.Thank you.
