ABC Lehua Honey
Lehua (lay-who-ah) is the name for the red, orange, yellow or white flowers of the Hawaiian ‘Ohi’a lehua tree. After a lava flow the ‘Ohi’a tree is the first to take root. It’s said that the minerals in the volcanic rock combined with the salty ocean air is what contributes to the salty mineral taste of Lehua Honey.
Lehua Honey is golden in color with a silky mouthfeel. It has notes of butterscotch and salted caramel. Prized for it’s beautiful fragrance and taste, this honey truly captures the essence of Hawaii. This honey also tends to crystallize fairly quickly due to the high glucose to fructose ratio. Some prefer it crystallized as it adds to the salty quality.
