Amber Ambrosia

Gourmet Honeys to Sweeten Your Day


There’s nothing wrong with your average honey bear, but sometimes we get in the mood for some of the gourmet sweet stuff. As avid tea-sippers, we’ve tasted our way through more honeys than we’d like to admit. Here are six that we tried.

Hawaiian Organic White Honey

VOLCANO ISLAND
Hawaiian Organic White Honey
www.volcanoislandhoney.com
This white honey has a texture and color like marshmallow cream and a light, floral taste that’s full of Hawaiian sun. You’ll just want to eat it with a spoon. $14


BIG TREE FARMS
Mango Blossom Honey

www.bigtreebali.com
Harvested from the island of Java, this deeply-colored honey is reminiscent of molasses and has a lovely fruity taste. The deep, buttery flavor complements pancakes, ice cream or marinades. $11

Mango Blossom Honey

Chestnut Honey

A.G. FERRARI
Chestnut Honey
www.agferrarifoods.com
This bittersweet honey has a complex, intense flavor that would give meat sauces and marinades an extra kick that will get your palate dancing. Also try it drizzled on pungent cheeses. $13


DR. PESCIA
Sulla Honey

www.ritrovo.com
The sweetest honey we tried is great as a sugar substitute in anything from desserts to meat marinades. This honey's rich, floral flavor could add depth to any sauces, coffees or desserts. $13

Sulla Honey

Foret des Maures

LO BRUSC
Foret des Maures
www.formaggiokitchen.com
This honey from the heart of Provence, France, is perfect for any type of tea. Its light flavor allowed the true flavor of our favorite brews to come out. $16


J.R. MUSHROOMS
White Truffle Honey
www.jrmushroomsandspecialties.com
We swoon over white truffles but this marriage of truffle and honey from Italy isn’t quite working. The bouquet is off-putting and, while the actual flavor is quite nice on the palate, it leaves a lingering metallic taste. $19
