The four honeys in this Tasting Kit are provided by 4th generation beekeeper Antonio.
Raw Organic Heather Honey (250g)- An amazingly deep tasting shrub honey; it has a depth of flavour with a pronounced bitterness similar to dark chocolate or black tea. It comes from the bees feeding on the low lying heather shrubs often on mountainous terrain.
Raw Organic Eucalyptus Honey (250g)- A really beautiful tasting honey; it has a wonderfully fruity creaminess along with a very mild eucalyptus/menthol aftertaste. Suitable for all ages as it is not overbearing in any way. This is a relatively light-tasting tree honey. It shares characteristics with other herbal honeys, such as thyme or sage.
Raw Organic Lavender Honey (250g) - This is a very light and pleasant herb flower honey, it has a warm and soothing taste of creamy florals. It comes from bees feeding on the lavender bushes in the Mediterranean area, It is different from the tree sap honey which is often dark in appearance and strong in taste, this honey tends to be mild, lighter and softer in taste.

This is a honey that is ideal for all the family due to its balanced and pleasing flavour. It comes from bees feeding on the small flowers on the thyme plant from
