The Raw Honey Shop
Greek Bundle - 12x490g jars
The ultimate bundle of raw Greek honey from beekeeper Thomas - 12x490g jars.
Raw, natural, unpasteurised and incredibly tasty.
Includes 2 x 490g jars of each of the following varieties - Mountain Oak, Orange Blossom, Thyme, Fir, Pine, and Vanilla Fir honeys.
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.
Raw Greek Orange Blossom honey - This is a very pleasant tasting citrus tree blossom honey. It is mild and has a gentle hint of orange, which is light in taste and colour and tends to set more quickly due to higher natural glucose levels. The mildly sweet and floral flavour makes this honey perfect for those who are new to raw honeys or those who tend not to enjoy strong flavours.
Raw Greek Thyme honey - It has a foretaste, which is mild and grassy like dry mountain herbs (You can really taste the thyme!), breaking into a large, fruity flavour similar to sweet and sour summer fruits such as raspberries and red currants, then dissipating quickly to a mild and clean finish. Very slight overnotes of the soft sweetness of fennel or aniseed without the strong flavour of liquorice. Strong hints of Greek mountain tea (Ironwort or Shepherd's tea).
The aroma is mellow and caramel sweet, and the mouthfeel is thick and almost oily, similar to sunflower honey.
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.
Raw Greek Pine honey - is a unique type amongst the tree varieties, and is regarded as one of the best honey varieties available. It has a strong, sweetly pine aroma with waxy, spiced overtones, similar to cloves or other warm, winter spices. The flavour starts with a strong sweetness, which comes on very quickly with dark, dry fruit and prominent cooked fig flavour, finishing into a sweetness that lingers at the back of the throat. It would pair particularly well with white, creamy cheeses or a rich vanilla ice cream.
Raw Greek Vanilla Fir honey - This is a honey that I considered we would never find - it is very rare and very highly valued and all available stock is snapped up at a very high price. However, this year has been a good year for honey and Thomas has persuaded his cousin, who lives close to Mount Mainlo to part with some Vanilla Fir. So that is how we are able to introduce Vanilla Fir to you from the Black Fir tree that grows on Mount Mainalo in the Peleponnese in Greece. This honey has been granted Protected Designation of Origin, because of its uniqueness and rarity. It comes from no where else in the world apart from the area around Mount Mainalo.
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.
