The color varies from light walnut to almost black; strong and acrid perfume. The characteristic of this honey is its pleasant “bitterness”. Crystallization is usually very slow and quite coarse. It is rich in minerals and vitamins. Sudoriferous, expectorant, stimulates blood circulation, therefore suitable for anemic, fatigued people, for those who want to gain weight. Another very important feature of this honey is its richness in tannin, very useful for fighting free radicals.
