Artisan Raw Greek Pine Honeycomb - 400g
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. It would pair particularly well with white, creamy cheeses or a rich vanilla ice cream.
This pine honeycomb comes straight from the hives of Thomas and his family with all the cappings, honey, and comb intact. This is the purest, most raw form of honey possible with nothing removed whatsoever, and the flavour tends to be strongest when eaten all together like this. The wax can be swallowed or discarded or even chewed as a gum replacement.
Colour: This particular honey is dark brown when runny, turning a lovely, creamy yellow when crystalised.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of Greek pine honey comes from Agios Konstantinos, a remote place renowned for its natural beauty and preserved wilderness.
Who produces this honey?: This pine variety comes from the family of Thomas, who is planning to take over the family's hives, located in secluded forest glades. Thomas, who works with his family to tend bees and produce raw honey in the mountains of southern central Greece, has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.
What about the tree the honey comes from?: The pine tree is part of the conifer family, a resinous evergreen that can grow up to 80 metres in height. They generally live between 100 and 1000 years, sometimes even longer, the oldest one to date was found to be 4900 years old!
Common Uses: Pine honey is particularly good to use in Greek yoghurts, breads and ice cream, but perhaps best is to simply enjoy this delicious prized honey on its own.
Greek pine honey facts: Honey from pine trees has unique attributes - the bees love to feed on the liquid the aphids leave after they burrow into the bark and pine cones drinking the sweet tree sap.
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.

Excellent honey and service
Superb Thank you
great honey, and fab service - many thanks
I think you should find
I think you should find alternative containers because when I opened the box then I found that one of the containers was broken and honey like a glue everywhere in the box..The quality of the honey wasn't that I was thinking of. I like dark honey with aromatic honey smell..
Sweet and fresh
This honey has a very fresh flavourful taste to it and the comb gives you something to get your teeth stuck into.
Love natural honey
I'm Bulgarian, so when I saw you guys selling Bulgarian acacia honey I immediately bought 3 jars. One of them went as a gift to Spanish friends and they loved it. I previously bought honey, bee pollen and Royal jelly off you , which were Spanish only to start with, and was very happy. It was exactly what I'm used to as far as honey goes, coming from Bulgaria, and was very pleased to see Ivan's honey here and will be purchasing again.
