The Flavor Experience
Four different flavored organic honeys, hailing from the Greek island of Crete. All of these honeys are raw, unfiltered and cold pressed, which preserves all of the natural health benefits as well as the distinctive taste of pure Cretan honey.
Honey w/Sage - meant to be enjoyed in the early spring, sage honey is light in color but full in flavor
Herbs & Woodland Thyme - a honey for later in the spring, this is best to enjoy with a breakfast spread
Pine & Thyme - A honey for fall, best enjoyed in coffee or tea. Pine trees and thyme bushes coexist in the Cretan ecosystem. This honey has a dark amber color and full flavor.
Honey with Heather - Another autumn honey that uses the wild herb heather that grows in the pine-tree forests of Crete. Recommended for using with meats, such as chicken or ham.
Meligyris Cretan Apiary has a long bee farming heritage that dates back to 1920, with the same traditional practices taking place for the whole time. The various base honeys are collected from hives spread across the island of Crete, as a means to celebrate the depth and diversity of the Cretan wild flora.
The honeys in this box are largely for spring and fall, but can really be enjoyed year-round on your yogurt, baked into granola, drizzled on cake, dolloped in tea, any way that you enjoy honey! Taste the nuances and enjoy as you see fit, or give to someone with a sweet tooth in your life.
