Deep earthy taste with lots of malts and a touch of smokiness – quite savory less sweet compared to nectar honey while it tends not to crystallize easily. Not for the timid palate, woody notes with a lovely caramel flavor in the center. Also notes of vanilla, walnuts, and dark chocolate.
Apiary Location: Mount Telethrio, Euboea
Botanical Source: Quercus frainetto,Quercus pubescens,Quercus robur
Pairing: Use it to lightly sweeten some black tea. Pairs well with savory foods rather than sweet and is a perfect partner of Pecorino Toscano with some fresh pears or on walnut bread.
Our honey varieties are sealed by hand without the use of machines in the standardization process. A piece of useful information for consumers is that unheated/unpasteurized honey crystallizes at some point. Crystallization is a natural process. If you want to restore the honey to a liquid form, use gentle heating (immerse the jar in warm water at a temperature of about 40°C for a few hours). Avoid microwaves.
