Honey's here!

I finally tasted it this morning and I LOVE IT! 
It really is a tasty tasty honey. Nice and earthy but still light and sweet. It's slightly floral at the end.
I did the "Eat it 'till I'm sick" test and I could eat twice as much of this new honey on a spoon ( Ironbark-Red Gum)  than I could the last batch of honey.  I think because of the rich flavour it's going to be much better for flavouring cakes, breads, drinks and cookies etc.

I really really liked the last lot we had that was mild and floral but this is my favourite so far. It's a slightly darker amber colour (but not dark) than the last batch of honey and is stronger in flavour.

(the pic on the right is not this batch, this new batch is lighter in colour but still very runny and fresh)
