Z Specialty Food - California Eucalyptus
Not as viscous as other honeys we have tried. Flavors are smooth with brown butter and brown sugar character. This honey isn’t made every year due to how hard it is to collect. It’s a bit less sweet with some mineral flavors and a nice tartness.
Aroma – Brown Sugar
Color – Amber
Thickness – Low Viscosity
Taste – Browned Butter and Brown Sugar
Well over a century ago, Eucalyptus trees were brought to California from Australia to provide a fast growing timber source. One of the fabulous by-products of these stately trees, now commonly lining California roadsides, is the fresh clean scent that wafts through each shady stand.
Flowers on these trees are abundant; pink, red, white and creamy yellow. Each variety produces a different flavor of honey, some more flavorful than others. Collected in the Bay Area of Northern California, it is dark, mineral rich and fosters a mild and wonderful flavor.
Enjoy this uniquely California treat on your favorite breads and breakfast foods.
