Mieli Thun Quintessenza Sunflower Honey
This Rare Tea Cellar Exclusive is a truly magnificent honey. From the artistry of Mieli Thun quintessence is the story of the flowering zenith, when honey reaches its maximum possible integrity. There is a magical moment when the flower is more generous in nectar, more intense in aroma and taste.
Produced during the end of June and July, this crystallized honey has majestic qualities and very rich in glucose.
On the nose, there are delicate aromas of pollen, fresh-mown hay, pineapple and passion fruit. On the palate, it is fruited and intense, with distinct acid notes and hints of ripe apricots with an aftertaste of star anise. The pollen is covered with tiny drops of yellow oil, which give the honey its brilliant color.
This unique honey is brilliant in an emulsion of extra virgin olive oil, ground black pepper, and a pinch of kosher salt to enliven the taste of an onsen tamago, used in dough for sweet or savory pastries, or drizzled directly on fried foods. it can stand in for butter or other condiments for cooking eggs sunny side up.
