From Thomas and his family of artisan beekeepers (his father Giorgos, sister Elena, uncle Kostas and cousin Panos.)
Therapeutic Honeys. High in Minerals & Antioxidants. Naturally Antibacterial, Unfiltered and Enzyme Rich
Includes: 1kg Raw Mountain Oak, 1kg Raw Pine & 1kg Raw Thyme Honeys
Produced and harvested in the mountainous areas of Thessaly region of Greece.
This selection is a wonderful mix of raw honeys from mountains and forests - all unfiltered and unheated. This selection has been put together to give the best possible taste experience of Greek honey, which is very highly regarded and follows an ancient beekeeping tradition right back to ancient Greece.
The honeys are brought to us by Thomas, a young Greek beekeeper, and his family which includes his father Giorgos, uncle Kostas, cousin Panos, and sister Elena.
Thomas is planning to take over his father's hives, which are on the sides of mountains and in secluded forest glades. He has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.
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 Pine Honey - Thomas' 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.
Raw Greek Thyme Honey has a mild and grassy foretaste 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.
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.

I am a lover of dark honey after buying this. The other two 1kg jars are equally amazing but I’m drawn to this dark honey. Once you go black you don’t come back..... I probably will look for the dark honey set after I’ve gone through this stuff and at £53 for 3 kilos of raw unpasteurised honey it’s a good price. Every spoonful or use of it, is an absolute pleasure. Such a deep sweetness when you taste the honey in its raw state. Price and quality That’s a bargain. So it has all the natural extras that are removed from the honey by most supermarket processes. And I recently discovered on the news that the supermarkets dilute the pure honey that they sell with corn syrup and similar products. Although not harmful to humans it shouldn’t carry the ‘pure’ label. Hence I’m even more happy to buy from these experts bee keepers.
The three honeys arrived in a lovely Jute gift box - beautiful presentation. We’ve just started the Thyme honey, great texture and quite a defined Thyme taste during eating - another excellent product.
Have only tried the Greek Mountain Oak so far and it is the most delicious honey I have ever tasted. Looking forward to trying the Greek Pine and Greek Thyme which I’m sure will be equally as good.
Very good. I enjoy your honey always and will order again soon. Thank you
Good quality perfect taste of honey.I like it
