THE TASMANIAN HONEY CO | Christmas Bush HoneyRegular price $17.00 $17.00
This favourite ‘home’ apiary honey, unique and inspirational in its crystallising nature. It is the ‘mother’ of the special texture we give to all our honey, firm and soft, solid and smooth.
Its flavour is best described as soft and mellow with marzipan tones. As if it were a herald of our antipodean summer Christmas, the “Bursaria’ erupts with millions of tiny white flowers in the shape of a bursting star – this is Christmas Bush!
Perfect for that thoughtful gift or Kris Kringle at Christmas time.
UNCOMPROMISABLE RAW HONEY
In keeping with The Tasmanian Honey Company's philosophical commitment to bringing one of the natures most unique gifts to customers in its uncompromised state, they have adopted a special low-temperature preparation technique. In carefully managing the extraction of the honey from the combs and its cleaning they are able to preserve both the floral essences and the innate vitality of their honey resulting in an aromatic and naturally organic food.
Because such low temperatures are used in the production, it does not inhibit the honey's natural tendency to crystalise, so to make the final product easy to use we encourage the honey to set with an ultra-fine crystal structure. This imparts to its a buttery and spreadable texture at room temperature. Also easy enough to spoon in and mix in whatever beverage you wish, from a ‘hot toddy’ to a honey lemon tea.
Most supermarket commercial brands of honey use high temperatures to delay the crystallising process and make production more efficient however this heat destroys the delicate flora essences, changes the flavour and generally compromises the other qualities and potential benefits of honey.
