Taste, Fragrance, and Colour

It gives off floral yet mildly earthy, deep woody, richly herbaceous, and freshening warm mossy odour with hints of wild nectar for sweetness. The organic raw honey has a smooth, mild to medium sugary taste with weak natural acidity. The best part is its tangy taste coupled with a striking floral aftertaste. It is present in light to deep amber shades. The colour varies per batch and season.

Background

The distinguishing point of wild forest honey is that it is made by a specific forest bee species which collects the honeydew from wild forest trees (holm oak, cork oak trees). The honeybees also feed on the nectar and pollen of rare herbs and shrubs and various wildflowers to give you a classic European speciality loaded with health-promoting compounds.

You can find pure honey being harvested in various regions, such as India, North America, and Africa.

What is the difference between forest and flowery honey?

The major difference is in their source of production. The flower honey is produced by the honeybees from the flowers’ nectar. Whereas forest honey is obtained by collecting honeydew (excretion of tree lice). The second major difference is their colours. Flower honey looks bright in spring yet darker in the summer. The forest honey always has a very dark colour.
