Found amidst warm breezes, thundering ocean waves, tropical flora and fauna and towering volcanoes, feathery red Lehua blossoms decorate the lush Hawaiian countryside as they bloom on the O’hia tree. In Hawaiian lore, this flowering branch is used as an offering to the fire goddess Pele, to pacify her fierce and fiery temperament.
This same blossom, with its quiet power to quell a volcano, is the source of this luxurious honey. With a flavor profile exclusively tropical, our Hawaiian Lehua honey is reminiscent of bananas foster, with hints of guava, mango and a delicate, floral note. Entirely unique in flavor, color and aroma, this honey crystallizes into a creamy texture, making it perfect for spreading.
It’s no wonder that Sunset Magazine placed our Hawaiian Lehua in its Top 5 West Coast honeys. In April, 2014, three of our honeys made its Top 5 list, where Hawaiian Lehua took its place next to our Northwestern Meadowfoam and Idaho Snowberry varieties.
(If you are purchasing a five-gallon bucket and want to brew with this honey, please let us know in the comments section at checkout if you’d like this liquid, rather than crystallized/creamy).
