Αn exceptional variety that combines Greek wildflower & pine honey. Well known for its sweet strong taste, semi-fluid texture, and light amber color. It is collected from all around Greece and encloses all the unique tastes & aromas of Greek nature. It is rich in nutrition elements because of its vitamins, mineral, and trace elements content.
This fir honey is distinguished by its cream highlights, thick texture, and a pleasant discrete resinous smell. Its mild, sweet, distinctive, and persistent taste is unforgettable and literally unique, taking into consideration that it is honeydew honey solely produced from fir trees. It is the only one that because of its low glucose levels (under 30%) never crystallizes, even after years. Its extraction is extremely difficult and expensive, thus the production is low as low is the number of beekeepers that harvest it.
Greek thyme honey is by far the best of its kind and thus it is the most popular among customers. It is produced in the Aegean islands and Crete and it is considered to be of higher quality. Its color is amber and the taste is the distinctive thyme one, slightly burning throat taste.
Our thyme honey “Ergastiri Meliou” has won three awards in blind-tasting competitions, has created loyal fans, and – traditionally – satisfies every demanding palate.
It is known for its stimulative, antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It can have a preventive role against cardiovascular diseases and it can be a natural remedy for bladder infections and digestive disorders.
