Purely Tasmanian

Late each summer the Leatherwood trees bloom deep within the vast untouched Tasmanian wilderness. The most prolific flowering trees are those that are 175-210 years old. The bees fly deep into the lush green forests, where they collect the sweet nectar from the pale white flowers. This pure and aromatic honey is truly world class and produced almost exclusively in Western Tasmania.

Health Benefits

Melita's Leatherwood honey is rich in antioxidants and also boast prebiotic properties. The honey can be used as a natural antiseptic and it has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that can assist in wound and burn healing, much like Manuka.

Tasting Notes

Melita Leatherwood Honey has a distinctively unique musky aroma and gritty, tannic texture that has no easy comparison. Candied and caramelised citrus fruits come to mind as do fresh rosemary and lavender.

Serving Suggestions

The unique flavours of Melita Leatherwood Honey are best appreciated on their own - spread on toast, stirred into a bowl of fresh yoghurt, or drizzled into a fine black tea. Honey perfection.
