There is nothing more frustrating than buying a product, getting home, and discovering that it does not taste good. That is what makes us different, we LOVE giving taste testings of different honeys!!
Do you know what you like? Your taste buds do! This has been my new catch phrase because your taste buds can tell you better than anything what you are going to find palatable. Honey is different depending on the time of year, what types of pollen were collected, and taste. No two honeys are the same and honeys change from one year to the next. So there are going to be different notes that people are going to notice that others may not. The tongue has a way to sense what is to strong and what is too light. Some honeys maybe sweeter than other honeys and some maybe too strong.
The joy of watching people light up when they try a new honey is indescribable. It is fascinating for so many customers to walk into our shop and see how many honeys there are available. We don’t even have them all; there are more than 250 honeys and that does not even count the small beekeepers that can have several types. Don’t bee fooled honey should not have the same consistency, flavor, and color all the time. Honey should be based on what is available for the bees to nibble on!!
It is fun to watch people who have not had the joy of experiencing raw honey straight from the hive. It is even more interesting to watch two people trying the same type of honey and watching their reactions. It is the realization that nobody’s taste buds are the same. So let us help you find what you like by buzzing by and doing a honey tasting the next time you are in Old Colorado City.
From our hive to yours,
