What type of honey do you use?

28 Replies

I’d second the vote for local honey. I visit a lot of farm markets, and buy local honey every chance I get.

My absolute favorite honeys are tupelo and gallberry, both locally available where I live.

no, no, no! LOL I guess I should have told everyone first off that I already use german rock sugar in my tea! I just didn’t want to use the generic kind of honey you find at Wal Mart…it tastes like it should be eaten on a roll or a biscuit and not in tea! I am intrigued by the creamed honey though, maybe more so to just eat and not have in my tea. Hmmmmm. Thank you everyone for your thoughts!

I posted this reply on another thread about honey, but I wanted to share here too. I like to use Acacia honey in tea because it is very mild. It only has a hint of “honey” flavor, so it doesn’t overpower the tea. And for sweetness, a little bit goes a long way. :)

(Btw, I found the Acacia honey in the gourmet foods section at Marshall’s.)

Rapsflower Blossom Honey for now~
But when I travel, I am always seeking
Locally grown honey wherever I am
Honey is good in tea, on toast, biscuits, or scones
AND like Winnie the Pooh…I could eat it plain

local honey. go to a bee keeper, and usually buy mine per kilo.(with honey comb)

love acacia, currently have sunflower honey. also have a small pot of linden honey.

do not use honey in my tea though, find it a shame. just out of the pot :)

I had a hive and got one good harvest out of it before it died a year ago. Still have some honey, but I hate using it in tea because it changes the flavor of the tea and masks the flavor of the honey. It’s like a positive and a positive equaling a negative!

I use agave nectar….it does not add any flavor to the tea, just a little sweetness.
