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!

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.

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.
