Jarrah TA35+ Raw Honey

The Supreme

for those who want the exceptional

The majestic jarrah tree (eucalyptus marginata) is endemic to the south west of Australia and boasts an astonishing lifespan of up to 1,000 years. This iconic tree has a notably slow growth rate, requiring 120 years to reach full maturity. 

Not all trees blossom simultaneously, rather, the jarrah’s flowering pattern is contingent upon the availability of winter rainfall and spring warmth. Each tree selectively produces flowers for a brief period from late spring to early summer every two to four years when the environmental conditions align harmoniously. During these rare events the jarrah tree adorns itself in magnificent cream coloured flowers, presenting a breath-taking spectacle.

The nectar from the jarrah of flower produces one of the world’s most premier honeys. It has extraordinary natural properties of being very high total activity, high antioxidant content and low glycemic index relative to other honeys. This combines with a taste profile that is deep and complex along with the fact that it doesn’t crystalise as a raw product to result in an exceptional and sought after honey. Jarrah honey is also 20 times rarer than manuka.

The Science

Premium monofloral jarrah honey is a powerful bioactive honey with some of the highest antimicrobial strength in the world as well as antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and unique antifungal properties. It is also low on the glycemic index making it a “diabetic friendly” honey.

This batch of honey has been independently laboratory tested and was found to have: 

TA | Total antimicrobial activity of >35% phenol equivalent

ORAC | Total antioxidant capacity of 345 umol TE/100g

FRAP | Total polyphenolics of 596 umol/100g

Total sugars of 68g/100g consistinting of 44g fructose and 23g glucose

 

Palynological analysis of the batch confirmed this to be a monofloral jarrah (eucalyptus marginata) honey with the following floral origins: 

Eucalyptus marginata (jarrah) 81.37%

Eucalyptus patens (blackbutt) 4.97%

Other myrtaceae species 10.86% 

All other species 2.80%

Full bodied with a smooth complexity. Silky and complex without being intimidating.

Visual

Colour: light amber, burnt orange, brick

Clarity: translucent with limited sparkle or brightness present

Consistency: heavy syrup with no crystals or sediment

Aroma

Intensity: medium to intense with savoury aroma

Umami, soy sauce, aged wood

Slightly present resinous, burnt nut and tobacco

No crystals or sediment, quite runny

Buttery, syrup-like mouthfeel

Flavour

Intensity: medium

Savoury, salted fruit persistence

Base notes: malted nuts, burned sugar, creme brulee, salted caramel, refined, yet juicy 

Top notes: dark fruit syrup

Pairing

Over a cheddar with green apple. The honey’s nuttiness pairs well with the full-bodied cheese and freshness of the apple. The apple’s tart sweetness will balance out the savoury, salty notes in the honey.
