Eucalyptus honey comes from the flowers of the Eucalyptus tree. Eucalyptus is a tree native to Australia that was exported to America and Europe at the end of the last century. Among the countries that imported it is ours, occupying large areas of northwest and southwest Spain.

The Eucalyptus tree is a tall tree, which flowers from September to March in the northern hemisphere, so the honey obtained from this tree is harvested in early fall.

Our raw eucalyptus honey

The raw honey of Eucalyptus has a dark amber color with greenish reflections, but if it has contributions from other plants, such as heathers and brooms, this honey takes on darker colors, taking on an earth brown color when it crystallizes.

Its aroma is very characteristic, very intense and persistent, which when tasted, reminds of the taste of wet wood. Its taste is sweet, with slight acidic and sometimes salty notes if it contains some pollen from broom or heather.
