In August 2019 this honey was awarded a Two Star Great Taste Award by the UK Guild of Fine Food.

Judges from the Guild of Fine Food who awarded this honey a Two-Star Great Taste Award described it:

"This honey drives the tongue on a multi faceted journey where flavours and landscapes rise and fall on the palate in a symphony of taste. Simply awesome."

"A beautiful burnt brown colour, with the most amazing heady aroma like walking into a walled rose garden. The flavour has great length and offers delicate floral notes, with great depth."

"The aroma of this honey is intensely floral.You can feel the heat of the jungle in the aroma. The colour is of a light caramel. This is honey on steroids."

"Visually striking, the honey has a rich caramel colour and a toffee aroma and floral notes. It has a burst of flavours which melt in the mouth. It has an unusual aromatic flavour with floral and woody notes, with hints of bitterness."

It is a part-set part soft honey, with delicious melt-in-the-mouth crystals.

It has tasting notes of caramelised hazelnut truffle and mocha praline with a splendid lingering aftertaste of rose and dark chocolate.

It comes from bees feeding in the Santa Catarina rainforest in southern Brazil, home to over 20,000 different types of trees, flowers and plants - one in ten of all species known to man.

At least 44% of this delicious honey comes from the pink Mimosa silk tree. Mimosa extracts are used in traditional Chinese remedies for relaxation and calming the nervous system.

[Note: This honey does NOT contain any trace of nuts; it is pure, natural honey.]

It is raw, certified organic, unfiltered, unpasteurised and living... as natural as if you collected it yourself.

This honey tastes delicious straight from the spoon or mixed into cold water, makes a nutritious and refreshing drink.

44% pink Mimosa silk tree

15% sunflower

3% palm

3% ailanthus (tree of heaven)

2% viper's bugloss

2% holly

2% bean plant

The pink Mimosa silk tree is a small tree growing 5-16m tall with a dark green bark. Its leaves are 20-45cm long and arranged as 20-30 pairs of oblong leaflets. Its flowers are 2-3cm long, looking like bright pink silky threads with a white base.

The pink Mimosa flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

The information given below is either background information about the plants from which our honey comes, or anecdotal based on customer reviews. It should not be inferred from the plant properties that this honey automatically possesses the same qualities or provides the same benefits as the plant.

The pink Mimosa silk tree has been used medicinally by Mayan civilisations for over 1000 years to relieve a wide range of conditions and ailments.

The pink Mimosa silk tree has been used in Chinese remedies for nearly 2000 years as a natural calming herb. It is known as the "tree of happiness" or the "happiness herb."

There is scientific research based support for the use of the Mimosa tree to relieve worry, stress and sleep issues.

[See Jung JW et al. Effect of chronic Albizzia julibrissin treatment on 5-hydroxytryptamine1A receptors in rat brain. Pharmacol Biochem Behav . 2005;81(1):205-210.]

In fact, a pharmacoepidemiologic study in Taiwan in 2002 found that the Mimosa tree was the third most commonly prescribed Chinese herbal remedy for treating sleep problems.

So Sugary Honey, We dont like it at all

So Sugary Honey, We don't like it at all, it is really frustrating

Hi Ben, thanks for your review. All our honeys are certified organic, which is the gold standard of purity when it comes to honey. Honey to which sugar has been added does not pass organic certification tests.

Customers unfamiliar with raw organic honey often think the natural honey crystals are added sugar. Crystallisation does not mean that sugar has been added to the honey. Crystallisation is one proof that the honey is not fake. A sugar solution does not crystallise at room temperature.

Crystallisation is a natural process which occurs in raw organic honey according to the ratio of its natural sugars, fructose and glucose.

One way of testing whether sugar has been added to your honey or not is to put a teaspoon into a glass of cold water. If it dissolves easily without effort, that means sugar has been added to the honey because sugar dissolves easily in water.

But if it does not dissolve easily, and stays separate (like oil in water) until you mix it thoroughly, then sugar has not been added to the honey.
