What Does it Taste Like?

What makes this variety of honey so popular is its unusual savor that combines sweetness and bitterness in a unique taste experience. Organic Raw Greek Arbutus Honey has a unique taste that you either love or don’t. The honey has a strong, pungent aroma and a mildly sweet taste at first, followed by a stronger, more persistent, and overpowering bitterness, but with an unusual fineness to it. There is also a slight astringency to the honey in the end. The rich flavor profile includes rather strong malty, coffee grounds or cocoa bean notes. Arbutus Honey has a beautiful aftertaste, but its medicinal main flavour puts many off. This is a connoisseur variety for those with a love of unique and potent honey.

Honey Facts & Benefits

Organic Raw Greek Arbutus Honey is a rare variety, which is only found in good quantities in three places in the world: Portugal, Sardinia, and Greece and it's one of the most potent testing varieties you can find. It is harvested late - late autumn, or early winter, and is the last the bees collect before the coming winter.

It contains Homogentisic acid, which gives it its brown pigment as well as other unique properties. The antioxidant and antibacterial qualities of this honey are truly exceptional. The variety has been said to exert a stronger antioxidant effect than acacia, chestnut, and other varieties of honey. The honey is rich in polyphenolic compounds and other elements with outstanding free radical-scavenging effects. According to research, honey can help improve wound healing time by reducing bacterial load.

The variety has been shown to contain good amounts of vitamin C, but also iron and other micronutrients such as amino acids that directly contribute to our good health. Along with natural sugars, it provides energy to the body and helps prevent hypoglycemia states and the feelings of unwell associated with it.

Applied on the skin as a face mask, Arbutus honey can help improve skin appearance, restore brightness and smoothness, and even prevent more severe acne breakouts.

Greek Raw Arbutus Honey is nicknamed 'strawberry tree' due to its fruit that looks a little like strawberry. However, these berries are not overly sweet, leaning more to acidic, but they are very refreshing. The fruit of this bush is used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Common Uses

Organic Raw Greek Arbutus Honey is one of those honey that makes a perfect and much healthier alternative to table sugar and is great for everyday use. It is is known as gourmet honey by connoisseurs and those with adventurous tastes, so it adds a unique flavour to dishes. Savoury foods benefit from its rich, bittersweet taste. Arbutus honey is also great when it's spread across toast, pancakes, hot scones, cereal, porridge, or added to pep-up fruity dessert dishes or yogurt.

Notes & Tips:

  • Storage: honey should be stored away from direct sunlight in a dry place at room temperature or below. Always ensure the lid is secured tightly.
  • Crystallization: raw honey crystallizes over time, and it is a natural process. Honey thickens and changes its state - it hardens and becomes grainy. Different types of honey crystallize differently. Some types of honey become very grainy and form larger crystals. Changes in color and structure (crystallization) are signs of raw, unpasteurized, and unprocessed honey.
  • Consistency: if you prefer softer, more liquid honey, you can gently warm it by putting the jar in hot water. Warming will liquefy the crystallized honey. Avoid exposing honey to temperatures over 45°C, because higher temperatures may destroy part of the natural nutrients. Please make sure the jar is closed correctly to ensure no water contaminates the honey.
  • Colour changes: please know that raw honey can vary in colour and taste from batch to batch - honey changes with the season and climate and depending on what the bees feed on.
  • Packaging: our honey is available in recyclable glass jars and plastic containers of various sizes. The plastic containers are made of BPA-free high-quality shatterproof plastic.
  • Safety Information: honey is inappropriate for children under the age of one year.
  • Product photos and videos are representative. Honey colour and texture may vary depending on the season and level of crystallization.
