This honey comes from the vibrant blossoms of the clary sage plant. This variety of sage starts to bloom in late May and continues into June.
This raw, unfiltered honey comes from Douglas County, on the Western side of Oregon, not too far from the city of Yoncalla.
The color ranges from White to Extra White, and the honey is a bit cloudy. Due to a low moisture content, this honey is very thick; it is almost chewy when cold. No, it does not taste anything like fresh sage leaves. It has a very pleasant blend of fruity and spicy notes, which linger on the palate. Similar in color and taste to tupelo honey, it is also very slow to sugar due to a high fructose content.
