Therapeutic Honeys. Higher in Minerals & Antioxidants. Naturally Antibacterial, Unfiltered and Enzyme Rich
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. The varieties include Fir, Pine, and Thyme honeys. 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 Fir Honey - Fir honey is quite rare and the supply is limited. 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 a grassy, herbaceous smell lingering within the honey sweetness – mild and green, somewhat similar to fennel or winter savoury.
This Fir tree honey is very fresh, just harvested this summer 2017 from altitudes of at least 1500 metres on a mountain close to Pezoula Karditsas in Greece.
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 - Greek Thyme honey is one of the most highly regarded Greek honeys. This batch is a very beautiful tasting herb honey, it is creamy and rich with a really prominent thyme and herb taste. It comes from bees feeding on the small flowers on the thyme plant. This is a very sweet honey with a clear flavour of thyme.

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.
