Artisan Raw Greek Mountain Oak Honey - 490g
Awarded the coveted Quality Silver Award by the 2019 London Honey Quality Competition
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.
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.

This honey has a consistency of treacle and indeed almost of a superior fudge. The flavour is very satisfying and with a personal bias towards honeydew (since I perceive this to have added health properties) I can say that I shall be looking forward to consuming this product on toast or good bread on a thinly covered base of goats butter, containing a small amount of salt; also the honey will be very nice on a bowl of oatmeal porridge.
Rich, thick and nutritious
I love Greek Mountain honey and this particular variety from Oak is beautifully rich and dark with a wonderful sweet, but not too sweet, and nutritious taste to it. I will definitely be buying again.
