Greek honey is characterized by a golden color and an extremely limpid and crystalline appearance. Greek honey also has a sustained but not excessive density, ideal to be poured on a dessert or to become an exquisite ingredient that can be easily used.
Among the definitely noblest Greek honey varieties, the Greek thyme honey is certainly positioned on the first step of the podium for its delicacy and its unmistakable taste. Thanks to its soft golden and crystalline color, Greek thyme honey is one of the most delicate and most sought after varieties. It is often available in limited quantities.
Equally excellent, and with a slightly stronger taste, forest honey is a great alternative. It is not a single flower production (as in the case of thyme) but a mix of pollen. It is often combined with pollen deriving from wild flowers. Its color is slightly darker, tending to red, and the paste also takes on a denser consistency.
The best way to present and describe the qualities of the Greek honey is also a great culinary advice: "Taste it"! A 100% Mediterranean excellence of flavour and taste, the Greek honey combines unique essences with its special softness and delicacy making it certainly one of the most renowned in the whole Mediterranean basin.
