Though quite rare, Tupelo honey is well-loved by many. Aside from its health benefits, it is known for its beautiful amber color, excellent taste and aroma, low glucose content, and it does not granulate even after years in storage.
What Is Tupelo Honey?
It’s a high-grade honey produced where water-lover trees grow. It is produced from one of the many Tupelo tree species, Nyssa ogeche, which grows abundantly in the river swamps of northwest Florida and southern Georgia. Although Tupelo does grow outside these two regions, other places’ ecosystems cannot support large strands of these trees. Therefore, 100% pure raw Tupelo honey is rare.
Raw, unfiltered Tupelo honey has a light amber color and a greenish blush when illuminated. It has a unique flavor profile, which starts with a fruity-floral burst that melts on your tongue, followed by a buttery, warm finish. It even has cinnamon and floral aromas!
