ILIA Greek Wild Forest & Thyme Honey
Location: Mt. Taygetos, Vordonia, Sparta
Size: 16 oz
The arid climate and altitude of this area creates some of the most intense flavor in the herbs and trees that grow there. This honey comes from bees foraging on wild thyme and trees that are indigenous to the area. The beekeeper and his ancestors use ancient methods and has his beehives follow specific locations in the mountains throughout the year.
