Heather honey has a very distinctive flavour of heather and is exceptionally aromatic, which results from essential oils in the nectar and pollen of heather flowers. In a liquid form it has an rubin-amber colour and a bit jelly-like consistency which is quite unusual for honey. After crystallisation it becomes orange, sometimes dark brown and has a fine-grained consistency. It has a very pleasant, original taste and aroma of heather flowers. Honey made from the nectar of lighter flowers has a more delicate and sweeter taste and a lighter colour, while the one made of a nectar of darker flowers is more distinctive in its taste and is darker.
