Description

The intensity of the aroma and the taste is stronger than the colour would indicate. The usual rule of darker is stronger is broken with Linden honey. When very fresh it has a greenish colour, but after a time it becomes clear to amber with a yellow tone. The aroma is described as woody, pharmacy and fresh, also described as mint, balsamic, menthol and camphor.

It has low acidity, medium sweet and sometimes a light bitterness. It has a persistent aftertaste and is slightly astringent. The crystallisation rate is medium to fast with fine to medium-sized crystals.

Linden Honey – very fresh and light

Obtained from the blossoms of Linden or Basswood trees of several species of Tilia; it is known as Linden honey or Basswood honey in North America and Lime honey in the UK and Europe.
It is premier honey that has been enjoyed for thousands of years. At the height of blossoming in a Linden grove or on a street lined with Linden trees, the ambrosial aroma of the tiny yellow-white flowers surrounds you and draws bees from miles around.

Linden trees and honey are most common in the east of Europe, especially in the more temperate northern regions. Linden grows strongly around Russia and China as the Small-leaved Lime (Tilia Cordata). During strong nectar flows it can be seen glistening on the flowers like morning dew. Nectar flows in late spring to early summer and flows strongest in warm humid weather.

    Smells and tastes delicious ! Delicate but aromatic (up to my taste buds 🙂 Very yummy. I prefer to have it just by spoons or in not too hot teas, to enjoy all the benefits 🙂
