Colour and Taste of the Honey
Depending on the kind of flower from which the nectar was extracted, the taste, colour and aroma of the honey will vary.
There is a relationship between the colour and the flavour of the honey. One rule of thumb is that pale and clear honeys have a soft, delicate taste, while honey with a dark colour tends to have a sharper, more pronounced taste.
The colour of the honey can also be acquainted with the season in which it was harvested:
Honey harvested in spring represents light, clear colours:
e.g. Spring Honey, Acacia Honey, Clover Honey
In summer, honey harvested has a cheery yellow colour with fruity flavours:
e.g. Sunflower Honey, Summer Honey
Honey harvested in autumn tends to be darker and sharper in taste:
e.g. Heath Honey
