Re: Types of honey bees & different tasting honey?
I am no expert, but the honey does change from year to year in my area. The past two years the bees produced a lighter and thinner honey. Sure it tasted good, but it did not quite have the robust flavor of the darker honey the bees made my first year. This year was dark and strong again. Same line of Carni/Caucasian mutts. I am sure it is related to not only the floral sources, but on what the bees actually choose to forage. Think wine. Best wine from dry years type of thing. Same grapevines, same soil, different flavor.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
