We are so proud of our Tupelo honey. This varietal is the Cadillac of honeys and this particular Tupelo harvest is like driving one with gold plated wheels. Tupelo is harvested for 2 weeks in the Spring in the northwest corner of the Florida river swamplands. Tupelo is light in color with a buttery sweet distinctive finish that is like no other. Tupelo honey is the only honey that does not granulate in its pure unadulterated form. Pair this with our Oolong teas.

Natural raw honey has the seemingly magical capability of spontaneously "setting" or crystallizing. Each honey will crystallize at a different rate based on the sugar and water composition. With its wonderful texture and more concentrated flavor, we recommend crystallized honey as a delicious spread over toast! If liquid honey suits you better, simply heat a warm water bath to 100 degrees and remove the pan from the heat. Submerge your jar with the cap removed and allow to stand 20-30 minutes. It will be ready to pour again! An uncertain amount of time will pass before the honey may need de-crystallization again, and then simply repeat these steps as needed.
