Tea Honey

As you may know, Uji in Kyoto is one of the most renowned tea-producing districts.

A beekeeper living in the area produces honey made only from tea flowers. He used to be a tea farmer, so he must know what is “tea” well. According to him, tea honey is rich in iron and mineral. It has high sugar content, but not too sweet.

He produces tea honey every year, but a small amount, in order to arouse people’s interest in honey. Not on the market…too bad…. Uji tea honey! I would love to try one day!
