Forest honey – a special gift from nature
Unlike blossom honey, forest honey is a so-called honeydew honey. It is produced when bees mainly collect honeydew from coniferous and deciduous trees. Plant-sucking insects leave behind a sugary secretion called honeydew which the bees collect from flowers together with nectar. This process creates honey with an aromatic, tangy flavour.
Forest honey originates in the fragrant coniferous and deciduous forests. Scale insects and other insects suck tree sap. From the remains, so-called honeydew, honey is produced later on which has a more aromatic, bitter and tangier flavour than blossom honey. It goes very well with tea, black tea for example. Forest honey is one of the most valuable products given to us by nature. You will find a selection of excellent nectaflor and Alta Terra honey here. In addition, you will find exclusive gift sets in our online shop which are bound to put a smile on the face of the lucky recipient. You can also choose to purchase our sets with a selection of different types of honey.

Forest honey has a healthy and well-balanced flavour
Incidentally, due to its relatively high fructose content, forest honey does not crystallise or only does so in very rare cases. Thanks to its strong flavour, forest honey gives Indian chai an especially wonderful note. What’s more, thanks to its high mineral content and anti-inflammatory enzymes, forest honey is also considered to be extremely healthy. In short: It is a fabulous addition to our beneficial herbal teas!
