This honey is one of the rarest in the world, locking in the fresh aroma of the Karasu-sansho.
The honey is produced from species of flowers native to Japan and not found elsewhere, which have been popular in Waka poetry and literature since ancient times. Karasu-zansho is a citrus tree native to East Asia that produces beautiful pearly flowers. It grows only in limited latitudes and conditions and is rarely found growing in the wild outside of Japan. Its impactful flavor, which evokes the vitality of summer, has a luxurious feel and is popular among honey lovers. We hope you will enjoy its fresh aroma and clean taste.
