Eucalyptus

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 an exceptionally wet environment resulting in higher moisture content than other honey.

Known for its medium-strong taste. Its flavor palette combines woody, caramel, slightly mentholated, lightly tart taste. We consider this honey a moderate sweetness. It crystalizes shortly with a coarse texture which does not reduce the quality of the product.

Forest Honey

As it has an important percentage of honeydew, its mineral content is higher than regular honey.  Its aroma is soft (characteristic of honeydews). Presents a low sweetness with a woody, malty, and slightly caramelized taste. It crystallizes very slowly or not at all.
