Raw Two Rivers Honey from Argentina
A crystallised set honey from the biodiversity-rich land of Argentina, the world's largest exporter of honey.
A 2010 scientific study of honey from this region revealed that it typically contains up to 47 different flower pollen types, a figure that even surpasses honeys from the Brazilian mangrove wetlands.
Size: 454g (1lb) net weight in a glass jar
Set/runny: set, crystallised
Read on for more details about the origin, taste and health benefits of this crystallised set honey.
Sandwiched between the Parana and Mocoreta rivers lies the Entre Rios (“between rivers”) region of north-eastern Argentina. It is the fourth largest honey producing region of Argentina.
It has a moderate climate with hot summers. Once a year the cool pampero winds from the south bring relief to its scorching summers and produce an abundance of freshwater flowers that are not found anywhere else in the world.
Local beekeepers harvest this honey once a year so it can be brought to your table raw, unfiltered and unprocessed.
Tasting notes: Warm, fresh, fruity notes of green melon with tones of sweet vanilla and a crispy floral finish
Texture: Set, crystallised with fondant like crystals
Aroma: Aromatic, of fresh flowers and sweet vanilla
This honey tastes delicious on toast, porridge, with cheddar cheese or vanilla ice cream.
Tension headaches - insomnia - anxiety - antiseptic - bacterial infections - skin fungal infections - psoriasis - kidney stones
Two separate scientific studies conducted in Argentina in 2006 and 2010 on the honeys of this region found up to 119 different types of pollen, with the average honey containing pollen from an average of 30 different flowers and plants.
Honeys from this region are known for their high pollen content of White Sweet Clover, Smartweed, Laceflower and the Toothpick Plant.
- White Sweet Clover has been used in traditional Native American and Egyptian medicine for centuries. It has aspirin-like blood thinning properties due to its main active ingredient coumarin.
- It is used to increase the flow of blood through the arteries to the heart and eases swollen veins.
- It is also used to relieve tension headaches, earaches, insomnia and anxiety.
- When used externally it is used as an antiseptic on wounds, burns and boils.
- Smartweed has a history of use in Peru to treat bacterial infections. A 2010 study in Peru discovered that out of over 140 plant species tested, Smartweed was found to be one of the most effective in combating the bacteria that cause E Coli and MRSA infections.
- Scientific research in East Asia also found Smartweed to be effective in treating fungal infections of the skin and relieving the symptoms of arthritis.
- The Laceflower is used in India to treat psoriasis.
- In Egypt, tea made from the Toothpick Plant is used to treat kidney stones by its ability to slow down the buildup of calcium oxalate crystals in the kidneys.
Note: unless where specifically mentioned, none of these statements have been clinically proven in scientific trials.
Can't fault the service provided by The Latin Honey Shop. The honey tasted just as described. Thank you for fulfilling my order.
I'm not expert on Honey and it's quality but have to say this must be the good one. Still tasting and testing during Ramadhan. Thanks for prompt despatch and I received it very quickly. Well packaged. Once tested both I might order again soon.
Raw Two Rivers Honey from Argentina
For a long time honey user like me it's not easy to get impressed so quickly but this is super good. I use it in warm water,in my green tea and as a facial scrub and it's amazing but the best part is it's yumm
Amazing honey, great quality, superb packaging and arrived in great time. Thank you! I brought all 4 and the price is great for organic raw honey!
My little one loves them too!
I was undecided on which honey I should order so opted for all four. Each one had a unique quality and flavour but I still cant decide which one I prefer more, as they are all lovely. The red GL goes great with my morning coffee though. I am more than likely going to line up some orders in ramadhan as these honeys would make perfect Eid gifts.

Purchased all 4 flavours as I am a honey fan, and they all taste amazing and have very distinct flavour, texture and sweetness.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the best honey I've ever tasted! Couldn't recommend it more.
Deliciously tasting honey. Ordered other varieties too, on my last jar now so will be ordering more soon God willing.
I bought a jar of "Two Rivers Honey" along with a selection of the others for honey loving friends, and judging by their reaction to the unopened jars alone - these are going to be well loved!
I haven't really tried much of it yet but it seems very nice so far.
Hands down the best honey I had in London. You should try the Gum honey, tasted nothing like it before.
This wonderful honey is runny and toffee fudge at the same time. Perfect product for the price!
Amazing, great quality honey. Sweet!!
Will be buying again
Pleasant and fragrant honey- smells lovely and tastes good MA
Honey is great taste wonderful would highly recommend
Really impressed. It's delicious, natural and healthy.
The taste is unique and so is the texture but love it
The honey, while very tasty, has a very interesting taste. Not sure if I could describe it. :)
Very delicious and tasty honey
Fruity, floral and vanilla taste comes through nicely
Thoroughly enjoyed it
I don't usually have raw (solid) honey, but once it warmed up a bit was delicious on uattery toast and in my tea! the flavours are warm and creamy without being sickly sweet. Will be sure to order again and try out the other honeys too!
Just recieved my order. Amazing products. All that topped with quality and taste of this product, coupled with the health benefits. I cannot fault it. Thank you so much.
Nice honey, just difficult to open. Tried the hot water but didn't work, so ended up using sharp knife to get some air in the jar. That worked! Maybe try change the lids.
I received the product within 36 hours of placing the order. The honey itself has an amazing aroma, texture and taste. It was absolutely delicious on toast. The size of the jar, the quality of the honey and the fantastic tastes are definitely worth the money, never mind all the health benefits. It's a totally different experience to all the supermarket brands. Gotta try the others now.
