This is another extremely rare varietal of honey. One of Hawaiʻi’s most iconic flora, the ʻōhiʻa lehua (Metrosideros polymorpha) is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands and is steeped in the Islands’ history. The flowers are gorgeous—coming in a variety of colors from red to yellow and even white—and have played muse for many local clothing and accessory designers. ʻŌhiʻa lehua is one of the few honey plants that is native to the Hawaiian Islands. The lehua flowers and liko lehua (leaf buds) were used in making lei. The flowers were used medicinally to treat pain experienced during childbirth.
The color of Hawaiian Lehua Honey is white to light yellowish white which crystallizes very quickly, creating a thick texture. The flavor profile is mildly sweet and floral with some intense floral notes. In our ongoing quest to bring you the most unique honey varietals found anywhere in the world, you will enjoy this rare and very limited supply of Hawaiian Lehua Honey!
This is a very limited reserve honey, from our partner properties in Hawaii, meaning we didn't push our bees to overproduce, nor did we blend this with some "other" bulk honey (like many other honey companies). This honey came straight out of a Hawaiian beehive and into the jar.
Since we take such care in our process, we are only able to produce small runs of each honey profile. Once this honey is gone, it's gone. This honey will have a slightly different flavor profile every season and every time we pull it from the hive. But every time, you can bet—it'll be delicious.
At Epic Honey, we make sure our honey is chemical free and all-natural. We maintain the integrity of our hives by assuring nearby farmers do not spray pesticides, so our bee colonies are never in danger.
SUPPORT SAFE BEE RESCUE!
We really like bees. That's why we practice "bee approved" beekeeping and bee wrangling, then donate the profits from this honey to a powerful, no-kill bee rescue operation.
You are literally helping to save the bees when you purchase a case of Epic Honey. Profits from this item go to support the safe rescue, relocation, and rehabilitation of honey bees through our partnership with the American Honey Bee Protection Agency (www.ahbpa.org). Every $10 you spend with Epic Honey Co. saves around 2,500 bees.
Together, we can save the bees! Thank you! We need our pollinator friends.
Shipping & insurance fees are based on package weight. Our limited reserve honey is shipped in thick glass jars, which add some extra weight to the overall package. Your shipping fee guarantees delivery and the integrity of these glass jars. If a jar is broken upon receipt, we will send you another replacement jar at no extra charge.
Jars of honey are based on net ounces, not fluid ounces.
