(Mieli Thun) - 8.5 oz
Mieli Thun Eucalyptus Honey is produced in July from the area of Matera-Basilicata. Amber or light hazelnut-brown in color, its aroma is of liquorice with soft smoky tones. It has a salty and medium sweet flavor with an intense and persistent note of balsamic. It crystallizes spontaneously and quite quickly into fine grains. It is a great honey to sweeten herbal tea or a strong black tea. In 1992, Andrea Paternoster took over the family business from his grandfather with much determination and passion to expand the business and the honey catchment areas beyond the Trentino region. Andrea's dream is to capture the unique essence of each variety of flower in a series of single-blossom honeys. Taking his bees with him, he travels all over Italy following the flowering seasons of dozens of different types of flowers. Andrea told us that his art is about being in harmony with his bees and having a skill for timing and sensitivity. But the skill goes into the extraction of the honey, which is all done without pasteurization or any additives. Each varietal of honey is special as the fragrance and flavor of each flower species is captured in the honey.
