MY REVIEW BEGINS
Here is what I think
I received several honeys and I could not have had more fun or be more thrilled:
Honey Crème Clover – Raw clover honey.
The “normal” honey however there is something to be said for the Crème texture. It really makes the tea light and airy. It’s a very fresh taste, creamy and just melts off the spoon.
Honey Crème Lavender – Raw clover honey, lavender, natural flavor.
This is clearly another amazing honey with a splendid zest of flavor when I added it to my muffin. It’s such a light flavor of lavender in the honey and it’s not over powering but just perfect.
Honey Crème Coconut – Raw clover honey, coconut, natural flavor.
I love coconut and I was excited to try this honey. I was disappointed with the coconut it had a different flavor. It has such a sweet scent and flavor but for me it was not a winner.
Honey Crème Blood Orange – Raw clover honey, blood orange, natural flavor.
I was not sure about Blood Orange flavored honey but WOW it was it really fun. It has a nice citrus flavor and that familiar crème texture that just makes this honey stand out from any other.
Honey Crème Raspberry – Raw clover honey, raspberries, raspberry concentrate, and citric acid.
This honey was the real winner for me, sweet honey and amazing raspberry flavor. The liquid citrus sweetness, Yum. It’s an amazing combination and not overpowering, sweet raspberry liquid gold!
All the teas are Raw with natural flavors I love that! My Tea Vault is all about healthy and natural and this honey fits right in, it is amazing.
So, seriously a spoon and I was ready to go.
Honestly I had some tea reviews I was working on so I used the Honey Crème Clover in a tart tea to really bring the tartness down and it sure did and the clover taste really gave the tea a whole new flavor.
That kosher certification is important as well, adding another amazing ingredient into the kosher list of foods possible just makes me smile!
Honey is not “just honey” and once you taste these Honey Crème’s you will see what I mean, just pick one and you will be very pleased and be back to purchase more. The flavor is amazing, and the crème process is significant to the uniqueness of these honeys.
***I have to admit my son told me to stop moaning as I spread the honey on my muffin one morning, I think I embarrassed him, but honestly, it was just THAT good!***

What I liked
Loved the blue/pink magic trick with the tea.
This herbal tea brews fast, I like that, and sometimes you just do not have time to sit around a let a tea brew.
100% natural I love that as well, no fake, no fluff and no additives.
You can drink it hot or cold.
I can’t wait to make ice cubes with it and add it to my water “just for fun”.
What I did not like
I know I said I love the flavor of the tea but if I had to say anything I did not like it would be that some people may not believe or think they are getting something good for them without the flavor.
I can’t dig too much deeper, I honestly don’t have anything negative to say, it’s a great tea.
