Small but mighty, the itty bitty buckwheat flower is more closely related to rhubarb than the wheat used in breads. Harvested into the early fall, this honey’s deep mahogany colour foreshadows its rich molasses flavour and subtle chocolate undertones. Buckwheat pollen is nutritionally dense and a favourite of bees everywhere.
Buckwheat honey is distinctly known for the molasses, sorghum and maple sap notes that permeate its flavour profile, but this buckwheat has been specially chosen for its dark cocoa flavours which elevate this varietal honey.
