I had one of our worst years in terms of honey production. The honey however is excellent. The honey has a very light taste, is lighter in color and has a very defined minty taste. Everyone loves it but I have no idea where the minty taste came from. There have been years when we has a slight minty taste but that was at least 5 years ago. Does anyone know where this minty taste comes from? Our frames that were fully capped produced this tast and I assume the nectar was brought in earlier. Hives with poorly capped frames and higher moisture content had a very heavy honey taste. Hard to explain.
