Do you have an interest in a pop-up event?  Are you one of those people who has asked me when I am going to sell tea with my honey?  Are you sick and tired of having that bargain basement, garbage tea from one of those (to be un-named) corporate owned coffee places?  Well, if you live in or near Ann Arbor, you should come to visit me at Teaspressa this Friday the 14th of December from 1:00 to 6:00 PM! These cats reached out to me directly and showered me with accolades about my honey and what I do for...

ginger, honey, orange -

It isn't every day that I get the shop to craft a new flavor combination for our honey, so when I stopped in to pick up last week's supply, you can bet this one knocked my socks off.  That's right - Orange Ginger is our latest creation!  Before you get it in your head that this one will compete with Lemon Ginger, allow me to allay those concerns right now.  As I mention all the time at the booth, lemon and ginger is best situated for dense fish steaks like swordfish.  The pairing for this one.... chicken stir fry!  I...

Look, variety is where it's at.  We grow our own honey but we also offer single pollen (monofloral) honey from around the world.  Why?  Because they all taste different.  And we believe in honey choices.  There is nothing wrong with some good ol' local honey, but just know that you may be limiting yourself from experiencing a HUGE range of flavors!   We encounter people all the time who tell us "they only want honey from within 5 miles of their house"-- even though they don't know why OR have been misinformed as to the particulars of what 'local' honey truly...
