I usually buy the very dark honeys which are not excessively sweet. This honey is too sweet for my taste but a delicious flavour for all that. Hate the plastic shapes you pack the jars in. I have recently received glass bottles packed in sort of shredded cardboard. I kept a bit to send to you but keep forgetting. Mary Dale
Excellent product. Great taste.
I purchased two jars of this honey for my own use, and upon receipt I gave one jar to a friend as a gift, who each time we meet, enthuses about how beautiful the honey is. The jar I kept for my own use I have only this week started and must say I am really enjoying it each day, it isn't as heavy as the darker ones and has a lovely light, fragrant taste. I will buy it again without hesitation.
Just love the light refreshing taste
First time I have purchased this honey and am really pleased with the fabulous taste. Complex and floral but not too sweet. Also excellent when used as part of bread making. My wife thinks it's great too, enough said!!
