Dwutta TA30+ Raw Honey

The Exotic for those who have refined taste

Native to the coastal plain of western Australia the dwutta tree (eucalyptus todtiana) grows very slowly only reaching a height of 15 metres upon full maturity. These resilient trees are believed to have a life span of up to 250 years.

Esteemed by the indigenous noongar people, the evergreen Dwutta tree plays a significant role as a vital habitat for various local fauna including nectar feeding birds. During the summer and early autumn the tree produces abundant clusters of white flowers, so profuse that they cause the branches to bow under their weight. The nectar rich flowers attract bees in great numbers, fostering a buzzing east coast system.

The nectar from the Dwutta flowers produces a dark amber colored monofloral honey which is full bodied with sweet burnt sugar aromas and a thick syrup like consistency.

Dwutta honey production represents less than 2% of Australian production. It is sought out by connoisseurs and is rapidly gaining popularity both due to its taste profile and natural properties.

The Science

Premium monofloral dwutta honey is recognised as a bioactive honey containing additional beneficial compounds beyond the typical sugars and enzymes found in most honey. In particular, it is relatively very high in antioxidants, has antibacterial properties and is filled with anti-inflammatory agents.

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

  • TA | Total antimicrobial activity of >34% phenol equivalent
  • FRAP | Total antioxidant capacity of 445 umol TE/100g
  • ORAC | Total polyphenolics of 563 umol/100g
  • Total sugars of 71g/100g consistinting of 44g fructose and 27g glucose

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

  • Eucalyptus todtiana (dwutta) 69.37%
  • Corymbia calophylla (marri) 6.69%
  • Melaleuca / leptospermum species 6.34%
  • Other myrtaceae species 16.37%
  • All other species 1.23%

Initial molasses and dark treacle flavour that gives it a dark sweetness with a metallic edge. Base notes of raw cacao nibs with the bitterness of strong black coffee. Very slight, green vegetal, bitter raw stem flavours appearing at the end.

Pairing

Best matched with creamy and fresh products like marscapone. The coffee and liqueur flavour profile is be a great substitute for tiramisu.  This honey is sophisticated enough to handle competing bold flavours like ginger or chilli to create a layered experience. For examples drizzled on baked goods like a ginger scone with fresh cream.
