Come Spring, tulip poplar trees (which can grow upwards of 150 ft!) explode with teacup-shaped blossoms. Honey bees in select regions from New York to Southern Georgia transform this Spring bounty into a honey that is dark in color and strong in taste.
The bold flavor is not musty nor earthy as one might imagine. Instead, tulip poplar honey retains a certain crispness despite it’s uniquely rich flavor profile. It has a rich taste that is similar to a fig jam.
