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.

Visited Savannah twice. I just love the City, and the honey store, and so wish we had one in NH. I tasted many in my years, and really loved this one. Velvety smooth. So lovely. I bought my honey-loving son a jar also. Did not know it is so rare, depending on the season. I will need to order some online soon. This little jar will get gone soon!!! Yum!!!!!

This is by far the best most complex honey. So good. Just ordered more.

This honey is great! I have rheumatoid arthritis and I've been taking a tsp of this host for about 4 weeks now and I don't have the pain and stiffness that I've had. I feel much better!

I bought this honey on a trip to Gatlinburg, TN, in a gift shop and I am very glad that I did. The taste is amazing. I recently was not feeling well and started putting it in green tea. My cough has gone away and I am feeling much better. I have also put it on waffles and pancakes instead of using maple syrup and I love it. I will be buying more soon.

I came by the Savannah Bee spot in Atlanta at Americasmart and what an alluring site! Fresh fruit and cheeses with a honey comb smack in the middle. Crackers to help vector the tastey morsels! The staff were so nice and knowledgeable! I'll be calling soon to order for my gift shop! Diana

I have never heard of Sourwood honey until I walked into the SBC store in Savannah. I have been turned on to a glorious honey that sadly is hard to come by in large batches as it really depends on the season/harvest. So I order the 3oz. jars 4 at a time! I eat it at work straight from the jar, with apples, in my tea or coffee anything really! The taste is very smooth - buttery velvet with a small backnote of spice. Perfect for that spoonful everyday to keep the allergies away - HANDS DOWN AMAZING HONEY!

I have anticipated trying this honey because it was Out of Stock for so long. I finally ordered 4 of the mini jars. The taste was exceptional, so I immediately ordered 14 more jars because I didn't want to run into it being out of stock again. Just as I expected, they did run out of stock; however, Savannah Bee was able to fulfill the order by pulling from store inventories. A week later, my order arrived, but Savannah Bee went an extra step forward and included a gift and a handwritten note for my inconvenience. This is good ole-fashioned customer service and was much appreciated.

I rate this product a 10!!!!! So wish I could get me some more of this sourwood honey. Once you taste it, it is just hard to switch back to another honey. This honey is simply the best in coffee. I had a couple bottles and just am waiting to see when you're going to have some more. Picked up another bottle of Tupelo for my tea. Please crack open a BARREL. Please.

I personally do not like most honey. I won't eat it at restaurants because of the typical flavor used makes me gag. I received this honey as a gift and we loved it. It is savory like it says. Very good.

We love sourwood, but when will you get more?? Before Christmas?
Nov 14th 2014
I tried this for the first time a couple years ago while I was visiting Savannah and I've been hooked ever since! By far the best honey out there!
Nov 13th 2014
We buy it every year as Christmas gifts! And they always ask for it again the next year. The best sourwood honey out there.

Grew up eating Sourwood Honey...it has always been our favorite....disappointed that it is not available this year...we are giving our family members honey for Christmas this year, and Sourwood was our choice. Now we are trying to decide which flavor to give.....Love your Honey, we have given as gifts before.

This is my husband's favorite, and I treat it as my desert honey!! I buy a fat free frozen vanilla yogurt, then drizzle the sour wood on top. It gets thick and stringy as it gets cold, kind of like caramel! Delicious!!!

What is going on with Sourwood? It's getting hard to find. It's my favorite honey hands down!

Having grown up in East Tennessee, Sourwood was my families "table honey." Savannah Bee Sourwood honey is exceptional.
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.
