Raw Monofloral Linden Honey
Linden - Tilia tomensta 250ml£13.00
Delicate, fruity and sophisticated, we like to think of Linden as the Chardonnay of the honey world. It has a butter-yellow colour, a distinctive, mildly spicy flavour and a fresh, woody scent. Ours comes from the Codri forest region of Moldova, where Linden trees have been grown for honey since Medieval times. Tall and elegant, their white flowers bloom from late spring-time to early summer, when the groves come alive with the hum of honeybees.
Rich in vitamins B, C and K and tannins, Linden honey is known to ward off colds and flu and help with respiratory conditions. It’s also thought to prevent migraines, calm the nervous system and help with insomnia.
Linden Honey crystallises naturally after four-six months, forming a soft, buttery paste with large crystals.
Linden’s tangy taste makes it the perfect match for creamy cheeses, green melon and crusty baguettes. It also goes nicely with a rich Malbec wine.
Made by bees in the protected Codri forest region of Moldova.
