My shipment arrived in our mailbox today.I'd never heard of buckwheat honey before or even buckwheat really? I googled it. Seems pretty handy stuff. Cover crop, edible seed, great honey. Cool. Also an exception to my generalization, dark honey from trees and light honey from ground plants. It's dark? and has a strong flavour? There is a native box thorn tree here that produces a light green honey that tastes like almonds.
It was immediately opened and tasted by my wife and I.
It is seriously good stuff, and has a very nice distinct flavour.
We were surprised at the clarity, given that it is not processed at all.
We love it.
The package took 3 weeks to the day from when it was post marked at Islandboy's local post office to our box.
That is pretty good for a mail service that went half way around the world.
There was no issue with entry into Canada, and we didn't have to go to the local substation re any paperwork or taxes or duties.
