Eucalyptus Honey

This honey comes from the Eucalyptus Grandis blossom in the Argentinian Mesopotamia during the months of March and April (beginning of fall). It is harvested in a very wet environment, so its moisture is higher than other honeys.

It has a medium strong taste. Its flavor combines woody, caramel, slightly mentholated, faintly tart taste and moderate sweetness. It crystalizes shortly with a coarse texture.
