Description

Awarded the coveted Quality Gold Award by the 2019 London Honey Quality Competition

Thomas' raw Greek fir honey 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 grassy, herbaceous smell lingering within the honey 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.

Colour: When runny, the colour of this honey is dark amber to nearly black, sometimes with a slight greenish tint.

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.

About the beekeeper: It was brought to us by Thomas, 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.

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.

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.

Greek oak raw honey

Absolutely love this honey. The texture is quite thick rather than runny. The taste is exquisite there's hints of treacle and fruit in it. Making the honey rich but not overbearing
