Its Tasmania’s isolated quality that provides its honey with distinct characteristics. The wind laden air and moisture of Tasmania’s rainforests give rise to the Leatherwood tree. Most of Tasmania’s honey comes from the rich leatherwood tree. The rainforest’s relatively low temperatures encourage the honey to set in a super-fine crystal organisation. This crystallisation gives the honey its smooth and creamy texture.
In comparison, higher temperatures produce both a weaker flavour and robustness of honey. Tasmania’s perfect honey producing climate provides a rich yet delicate taste, laden with floral essence. It is this unique floral and spicy tang that gives Tasmanian honey its renowned reputation.
The naturally organic nature of Tasmania’s leatherwood trees ensures that its honey is no less natural. Tasmanian honey is not only full bodied in flavour, but its production offers many health benefits for consumers.
