Raw Orange Blossom honey
A lovely light floral flavour, very versatile.
Antonio Simon's Orange Blossom
Advertised as mild, the flavour is indeed mild. Very pleasant, but lacking the character of our previous purchase of crystaline orange blossom. Excellent however for adding to fruit and yoghurt.
Just what I was looking for!
I was looking for a honey that didn't overpower the taste of what it was added to and asked TRHS to recommend one. I was recommended three - lemon and orange blossom and acacia. Unfortunately, the acacia sample pot was out of stock, but I'm happy to say that I was very pleased with the other two. Both fulfilled my expectations. Thank you TRHS.
