I’ve been a bit under the weather of late and I tend to bypass the subtle fancy teas and go for some basic black tea with a good honey. I normally get great local raw honey from a beekeeeper my mother knows but I was out so I went in search of a reasonable alternative. I skipped over the bear-shaped squeeze bottle section and went for the ethnic isles. I thought some sort of Greek honey might be good, but nearby the German section was flush with amazing looking raw honey.
Breitsamer had some great looking honey in a few varieties that instantly caught my eye in how natural they looked. A Forrest Honey which was very dark and claimed to be aromatic, an Acacia Honey which was very light, and Imkergold which was the Goldielocks “right-in-the-middle” option and had a very thick granuated/natural thick layer settled at the bottom. I couldn’t resist the pull.
The verdict: Totally Impressed. This is great honey! Well priced at about $6.00 for 500g and supremely flavorful and natural. I will admit it doesn’t stack up perfectly to my two favorites Red Bamboo or the local beekeepers raw offering, but it is available in the local market and a very close third. I plan on snapping up one of each of the two remaining types, especially the dark Forrest Honey. There is no English imformation available on this honey online so I figured I’d share, and technically it is in my cup right now.
