Varietal (Type of Honey)
Sourwood honey is a monofloral honey meaning the bees producing it primarily visit only one type of plant. Despite its name, sourwood honey does not have a sour taste. It's origin is the nectar from the sourwood or sorrel tree. This tree prefers acidic soil, which can give its leaves a sharp fragrance. Sourwood honey is highly sought after in the US due to its taste, which has commonly been described as buttery, rich, and full with hints of caramel and spice. It occasionally will offer a bit of a tangy aftertaste, as well.
Sourwood trees are common in the Appalachian region of the southeastern US, which is where you'll typically find this honey varietal. Perfect for this honey which is sourced in North Carolina.
