- Thyme Honey
Nice product as always but not as expected
The honey is great as they all are but it doesn’t have the taste that I expected. I bought thyme honey as I like the distinct flavour but this one didn’t have the same taste as the previous one. I can’t remember if I bought the exact same one before or a different thyme one.
The Raw Honey Shop
Dear Mr Hammaad, Thankyou for your feedback on the Thyme Organic Honey. I am sorry that you did not find the taste as distinct as the previous Thyme. Each batch will have its differences, as its dependant on the pollen the bees are harvesting. Also if the honey is crystallised this can also affect the flavour and smell to some extent. Ultimately we would like every customer to be happy with every honey they purchase from us, so please do contact us in the office and we will be happy to assist you further Kind Regards The Raw Honey Shop
Very good quality product. Thick, delicious and aromatic honey.
I bought this honey for several people as a gift. The positive feedback was delicious and the best honey they have ever tasted! But I knew that anyway! Delivery, as usual, was very fast and carefully packaged.
The honey is amazing! it is my second one. I also recommended it to my friend Helen, she ordered two and never got them, could you do something about it pls?
