Tasmania shares many of the same plants with Australia but it also has many unique species. Some of the oldest forests in the world grow here and are considered so valuable that over 2.5 million acres are protected as a World Heritage Site. Leatherwood is a cool temperate rainforest tree that produces masses of white, showy flowers with a sweet scent and considerable nectar. The name Leatherwood is likely in reference to the leather coloured sheath that covers young leaves and petals.
Established worldwide as a distinct honey type and strong floral flavour. Its distinctive spicy flavour makes it an excellent spread on wheat bread, and an ideal ingredient in recipes as it not only sweetens but adds a fantastic aroma to cakes, muffins, coffee and tea. In my opinion this is one of the most remarkable honeys since 40 years.
Its aroma is musky and spicy. The texture is creamy and smooth and it is not too sweet or acidic. It melts in your mouth and offers a lingering aftertaste. It crystallizes into very fine crystals and get quite firm. It is best appreciated in its liquid, creamy form. The colour is creamy yellow to ocher.
