Years ago, I had the small sample jar of the black sage honey. I searched high and low and it was out of stock for ages. Time passed and I stopped looking but I never forgot. I moved on to Tupelo honey and it became my favorite. However, randomly finding this again and ordering the 20 oz., I have moved Tupelo down to second place and Black Sage is back where it belongs. I'm ordering the 80 oz and putting a very large sign on it, Don't Touch! I'm really happy with this honey!
Black Sage Honey

I saw this in a NYT article. I love different kinds of honey, and this one is no exception. Going to use some of it in some canning recipes. It will be one of those flavors that no one can put their finger on. I own a company that does these types of foods.

So good. Great amount of flavor/sweet balance. Love this one.

In yogurt, in tea, in everything this honey continues to surprise me with how well it pairs with everything. I've bought it time and time again. If you are looking for a honey that is merely sweet, there are other types Savannah Bee Company makes that will work great. But if you need something that can round out any recipe or dish with something extra, this is perfect and you'll never get tired of it.

Black sage honey is a great quality honey with subtle aroma of sage... I was expacting a bit more debth of flavor and aroma. I still highly recomend it :)

This has to be the very best honey I have ever purchased. It's the best breakfast treat on toast or just a spoon full from the bottle.

This honey is my secret ingredient in homemade salad dressings. The sage is a nice complement to the honey's sweetness. There is a complexity that works well in many recipes.

I first tried Savannah Bee honey when my family was vacationing in Florida. SB has a store at Disney Springs where samples are readily available. We tried many samples, and the Black Sage Honey was my favorite. This is my third time buying it, this time buying it online. I’m not a huge honey fan, but this honey is so yummy! I use it in my tea and to dip apples. SB honey is expensive, but I’ve never tasted better. I highly recommend it!

This is absolutely my favorite honey. The sage gives it a complexity beyond pure sweetness. It’s an amazing complement to a cheese plate.

I bought a small bottle of this honey and liked it. So I wanted to buy the 80 oz bottle even though it was far overpriced. But when I went to check out, there was another charge of $8.82 for shipping. Now it became ridiculously overpriced, so I aborted the checkout process. Most on line orders provide free shipping for orders over 35 dollars.

I have been buying honey from Savannah Bee Co for about 20 years now. I have tried many of the different flavors over the years but as of recent I have landed on Black Sage! I use it everyday in my coffee as a sweetner, recommended by my GI Doctor. I buy the 80 oz bottle about every other month and will do so as long as it is available! Love my BEE Company!

When living in San Diego I discovered a sage honey that was so good it became my favorite. Now living in Florida, it is not available. After trying about a half dozen different honeys from on line suppliers, found that Savannah Bee Co. sage honey is as good as I had in San Diego, the best ever! I'd give it six stars if possible.

Such a rich fantastic flavor. My kids weren’t crazy about honey before this because they said others were too sweet. They finished off a small bottle of black sage in one weekend! Will definitely keep this in my pantry

The best addition to a warm bowl of porridge !

Happy to find Savannah Bee Co. and Black Sage Honey! Best tasting honey there is! Will order more ....

This is a great flavor. The sage taste seems to downplay the honey's sweetness.

Great honey, worth the cost.

I found this honey several years ago at a little boutique shop in Thomasville, GA. I was hooked! This honey is so very amazing that I am at a loss for words. When I went to buy another bottle I was told that it would be 10 years before it was available again :-( I can't believe that it has been 10 years but maybe so . . .I'm ordering my bottle now!! Thank you SBC!

Had never heard of Black Sage Honey before we found it at Disney Springs. Tasted it and immediately though of several ways to use it for cooking. First dish was sauteed Chicken and Asparagus. Was not disappointed. The flavor is amazing.

We came to Savannah for a weekend, I checked out what to do while there. I saw this Savannah Bee Company and that they had a honey tasting. Of all the honeys I tried, this black sage was outstanding!!! It really is as good as everyone says. If your not sure, try several little jars of different flavors.

I bought a small (3 oz) jar of Savannah Bee Black Sage Honey quite a few years back, and when I discovered how good it was, I tried getting more. But it was completely sold out by then. I've been waiting patiently...for several years...but it's finally back. I bought enough to last me until the next time it's available! Thank you Savannah Bee!

I was never into honey until my first visit to the downtown Savannah Bee store about 8 years ago. The Black Sage is by far my favorite honey. The flavor is so unique and just wicked awesome! My second favorite is the Acacia honey.

I was excited to try another new honey from Savannah Bee Co. The name "black sage" wasn't the most appealing but I was intrigued. It was just as amazing as all the other artisanal honeys they sell! Initially I only purchased one 12oz jar in case I didn't care for it, reordering a few more now to keep on hand that'll last me another decade ;) I've got so much Savannah honey in my home I'll have to leave it in my will to devide amongst my children, lol! Thx!

I've been waiting for black sage to return. It is my favorite. Time to stock up!
Black Sage Honey
The taste of Black Sage Honey is so unique it's often polarizing -- you either love it or hate it. But this year's crop is so good, we are certain we can turn all the haters into lovers of this honey.
Mild and delicious, Black Sage Honey provides a subtle herbaceous flavor ideal for savory recipes or herbal teas. This year's crop is extraordinarily light in color and delicate in flavor. Ted says this year is the best since 2011! "I am so excited to have this honey on the shelves and offer it to everyone. This years taste is extraordinary and everyone will find this fruity, softly sweet taste with earthy notes a favorite for their honey pantheon."
This rare and exceptional honey is usually harvested only four seasons per decade. It's a real treat, and we are happy when any at all is made, let alone enough to get us through to the next harvest.
Bees make the honey by collecting nectar from Salvia mellifera, a wild desert plant that grows in the lower Sierra Nevada mountain region. To produce enough blossoms for honeybees to make a crop of Black Sage Honey, this desert plant must get just the right amount of rain at just the right time of year. Many years can pass before black sage plants experience this delicate balance of rainfall and aridness, which is one reason why Black Sage Honey is so special.
