Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey

750 GR (26.45 oz) - Tasmania

The best honey
from the other side of the world!

For the honey-lover, this is one of the pinnacles in flavor and taste. It's a unique plant, and its location on the globe is truly a reminder to us about how important terroir is to honey making.

It's a honey that grows on you, even if you are surprised the first time you taste it. Leatherwood is full of sweet floral aroma, bright colors, with the perfect balance of sugars. When combined with its natural healthy qualities, it's a honey worth having.

Tasmanian Leatherwood honey has been recognized by food connoisseurs around the world for over 100 years. The special appreciation for Leatherwood honey is due to several reasons. First, its unusual flavor—a sweet floral aroma—and its complex aromatic palate that lingers. Second, its quality factors: bright golden color, low moisture, and balanced sugars. Third, its healthy vitality.

Tasmania is the smallest and southernmost state of Australia, situated some 250 kilometers south of the continental mainland. The island contains a very diverse range of natural elements: rugged mountains, alpine moors, rich agricultural land, gentle valleys with historic towns and villages, hundreds of lakes, and sweeping white beaches.

Tasmania lies on latitude 42 degrees south. The only other landmasses sharing this latitude are the South Island of New Zealand and southern Chile. All else is the vast expanse of the Great Southern Ocean, with its prevailing westerly winds known in this latitude as the "Roaring Forties".

It is in the valleys of the remarkable and inhospitable western mountain region, with over 100 inches of rainfall, that the Leatherwood tree grows as a rainforest under-story tree. The Leatherwood tree typically grows to 10 to 15 meters, occasionally reaching 30 meters in height, and attains maturity at around 250 years old.

The trees begin to flower in mid-January and continue until early March. The tree bears an abundance of extremely delicate white flowers with a fresh piquant scent. Leatherwood is so named because of the leathery texture of its leaves.

Crostada di Miele e Pignoli-Honey Pine Nut Tart
I make an Italian Honey Pinenut Tart( Crostada di Miele e Pignoli) It's fantastic for flavor. The Tasmanian Leatherwood mixed with milder Acacia Honey gives a beautiful floral taste and odor that is simply wonderful.
The Red Wine of Honey
This honey is to other honeys like red wine is to grape juice. It has a complex and rich flavor lacking in traditional honeys. Excellent with cheeses and teas.
