This set of raw Greek honey is brought to us by Thomas and his family. Thomas is 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.
Thomas' Raw Orange Blossom honey is harvested in the orangeries of the Laconian country, in the Peloponnese (where the ancient Spartans used to live). It is more intense than most Orange Blossom honeys. It has the slightly bitter sweetness of the orange jam that surrounds the peel in marmalade. One of the best Orange Blossom honeys we have tasted. Orange Blossom is normally a favourite of children and those who enjoy sweet and sunny honey flavours. It has a citric aroma and a hint of creamy vanilla. A great introduction to the world of raw honey.
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.
This antibacterial raw Mountain Oak comes from a forest that grows on a mountain round a lake close to a place called Rentina.
Thomas' 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 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.
It is a dark thick runny honey. Fir 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 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.
