Single floral, raw honey tastes better and is better for your health.
Our bees collect nectar from a single type of flower when they forage because the flowers on the island of Hawaii bloom at different times of the year in different parts of the island. As a result, the flavors, colors, and textures of each varietal are completely different! The flavors are also much more intense than honey that has been produced from a valley of different types of flowers, or honey that has been blended.
And because heating honey destroys its flavor, our honey is raw and unpasteurized, ensuring the flavors arenít compromised. We donít filter our honeys either, so they are full of phytonutrients.
