Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey


As seen in the Wall Street Journal.

Spicy and deeply complex, this honey has been supporting the export economy of the small southern Pacific island of Tasmania for over 100 years. The flavor is very fine with a subtle spice and savory quality - the sweetness is certainly present but seems to dominate the flavor less than say, clover honey.  The flavor is best appreciated spread on warm toast or plain scones - but we've used it in a honey cake recipe to GREAT success. 

Blossoming from huge trees which can grow to 100 feet, the white flowers of the Leatherwood tree are the source for 70% of Tasmania's honey. Leatherwood honey is appreciated the world over for its unique flavor and heady, floral aroma.  Because very little and low heat is used in the "harvesting" of the honey, the crystal structure is extremely fine.  This results in a honey that is rich and spreadable at room temperature.

  1. Smooth As Silk - From Happy Bees

    Posted by Elaine Simms on 5th Mar 2010

    This honey is in a class of its own. It's been a favorite since I first discovered this Genuine Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey probably 8 or 10 yrs ago. No matter what type of honey usually preferred (light, bold, etc), everyone who has tried this honey really likes it. The tin is a nice addition for collectors. I display mine on the back of the stove.

  2. Best

    This is the best honey I've had - bar none.
