TEA: Multilevel but softly sweet due to low natural sugars, with caramel notes.

Honey FIR Vanilla is the only Greek honey with a protected designation of origin since 1992
and is produced exclusively in the defined area of the mountain of TAYGETOS, (at an altitude> 1000m).
It stands out for its distinctive appearance, with the “golden” shades
created inside it and its total pearly off-white color.
That is why it is also called “Vanilla”.
It is particularly viscous and tastes like caramel or vanilla.
It is unique and one of the most rare in the world!
Its rarity is, in addition to its particular appearance, difficult to extract from the honeycombs,
as there are usually losses due to the destruction of the honeycombs.
For this reason, we produce it in very small quantities.
It has the lowest sugar content and hence the fewer calories than other honey.
PLEASURE IN TRACKS
High content of phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron.
A lively, multi-layered and peculiar taste and reminiscent of caramel notes.
Unique in Greece and worldwide.
