It comes from bees feeding on the small wild flowers in the Mediterranean area, different from the tree honey which comes from sap, this honey tends to be very mild and subtle and sets quicker than others. (Although sometimes we get a batch of mulitifloral, which comes from the forest).
Colour: Depending on the season, this particular honey can go from a rich, dark toffee colour, which turns a deeper shade of orange when set, to a lighter, amber colour going a a lovely shade of orange in the light.
