Acacia Honey comes from the flowers of the black locust tree. The trees come into bloom in late May and continue into June. The flower buds are intensely fragrant, which helps to attract the bees.
The black locust tree is native to the Southeastern United States, but has spread to many parts of Europe; this Acacia honey comes from Romania, in the province of Transylvania.
Acacia honey is one of the lightest colored honey varieties in the world. It is graded as "water white" and is so clear that you can see right through it. It is very sweet, with pleasant fruity and floral notes, and just a hint of vanilla. It has almost no aftertaste.
