The Island of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, Tenerife arises the great volcano of the Teide and the mountainous chains that cross it along this one. These high reliefs contain the highest peak in Spain, 3718 meters above sea level.

These geographical features and great variations in altitude cause enormous contrasts in temperature and different climates within the same island; a desert climate in the coastal area, subtropical climates in the foothills of the mountains and volcanic sites in the volcanic cone of the volcano, where the Teide National Park is located.

This wide range of climates and the protection of these passages by the Teide National Park, provides magnificent conditions for the development of beekeeping, which along with a flora different from the rest of Spain, you get unique honeys that are protected by the Designation of Origin  Honey of Tenerife.

Types of honey from Tenerife

Tenerife, due to its enormous climatic diversity, since we pass from a coastal climate to a high altitude climate, is home to a large number of microclimates where an enormous multitude of different plants are developed, which makes us have great diversity of single-flower honey.

Among the monofloral honeys that we can supply, these are the following. We cannot supply the same honeys every year.

  • Multi-flower honey: The multi-flower honey of the Teide is different every year, according to the blossoms that the bees have pollinated. For this reason, this honey will vary each year in color, aroma and sensations in the mouth.
  • Tajinaste Honey: Tajinaste honey has a very light amber colour and is normally crystallised.  Its floral aroma is not very intense with aromatic-balsamic nuances of medium persistence, with a creamy consistency.

Price of honey from Tenerife

The price of honey from Tenerife is usually much higher than the rest of the honeys from Spain. There are two main reasons for this.

Firstly, honey from Tenerife is in great demand and its production is very scarce, which has the effect of increasing its price.

Another reason for higher prices is due to customs problems. Since the Canary Islands are part of the Spanish territory, it is not easy to bring them to the peninsula, as they have to go through customs clearance and high over-added costs.
