The culinary equivalent of "stopping to smell the flowers". Fortunately, the bees didn't just stop, they got to work and as a result, they brought the metaphor another dimension: we can now bee in the moment through our sense of taste, too!

This sourwood is the best sourwood honey that I've had. I give this honey 4/5 just due to the fact that there are a handful of other honeys that I would generally reach for before I went for this one. The taste is good, but I do not prefer the "sour" because it's more bitter than anything to me. So this one will be a cooking honey for me and I will use others like the tupelo for just tasting honey. Hard to really give it a 4/5 because for sourwood it's a 5/5, but for honey... it's a 4/5. Hope that makes sense.

I love the honey bar at this store and after trying ALL of them, I thought this was by far the best. I was surprised how it stood out when tasting all of the honeys back to back. I have to say, I've never been much of a honey person, and this one converted me. Love it on pancakes, toast, crackers and fruit.

The Sourwood Honey crop this year did not fare as well as we had hoped. In fact, Ted called it “the worst crop in memory.” The weather in that region of the United States just plain didn’t cooperate, and Ted has not found any Sourwood Honey worth bottling and selling to you good people. We are as disappointed as you are. Maybe there is a very slight chance something worthwhile will materialize. And if it does, well, we will be sure to tell you about it ASAP. Let’s hope for a bountiful Sourwood Honey harvest next year!

The fact that Sourwood Honey has won the World Honey Show so many times, arguably makes it the best honey in the world. Savannah Bee Sourwood Honey is rich and complex, with an orchestra of flavors that makes everyone love it. There is saying among beekeepers: "There is five times as much sourwood honey sold than is made," meaning there is a lot of honey out there that people say is sourwood honey but that really isn't. We know this honey well and we only get the good stuff when it is available. Sourwood Honey pairs well with everything. Ted puts it on pizza, sandwiches and even salads.
