Creamed honey is a “controlled crystallization” that allows for small crystals to make the honey spreadable instead of the larger crystals of solid, unprocessed honey. This one is mixed with matcha green tea - resulting in a bright green honey!
Matcha is currently a very trendy flavor, found often at coffee and dessert shops, but for those who aren’t familiar with the flavor: matcha is a special, powerful form of Japanese green tea. It comes from the same plant but is grown and prepared differently. The whole leaf is ground into a powder, providing higher caffeine and antioxidants.
Some who try matcha for the first time are put off by its bitterness; however, the sweetness of the honey makes it much more palatable - I think it’s among my favorite creamed honey flavors. What should you do with this honey? There are many options - it’s great as a breakfast spread, but I also imagine it on ice cream, crepes, scones, cheesecake and lattes. Putting it in tea make give you an extra boost!
