A great all round manuka honey
Comvita have been producing and innovating honey products since 1974 when Claude Stratford founded the company. This heritage and endless hours of research and development really shines through with this particular 500g jar of honey.
The taste on these lower UMF honey’s is much smoother and works in well with your morning breakfast requirements. This particular UMF 5+ is rich yet understated flavour comes to life when spread on bread but does not over power the senses or leave any sugary after taste. It is masterfully balanced and an absolute delight to eat! This would also work very well as a complimentary ingredient into any gourmet marinade because the balance of flavours is so pure without the risk of creating something too sweet.
Texture of the Honey
The texture is smooth and viscous which simply melts in your mouth as soon as it hits. As mentioned above, because this product is premium grade there is no horrible after taste or sugary film left on your teeth. It’s clean, enjoyable and simply one of the best on the market.
It’s definitely not the cheapest manuka honey on the market but the premium they place on their product is somewhat justified in an industry where there are an increasing number of cheap imitations. What you lose in price is made up for in trust and pure quality of the product which is one of the best in the world. If you are buying a larger quantity of honey then you will be able to find some better deals on Comvita Manuka Honey UMF 5+.
