Florida Holly Honey comes from the Florida holly bush which blooms in April and May in Central Florida. This honey is extracted from the frames that the honey bees fill as they gather nectar. The Florida holly honey has a light, sweet flavor and a tang at the end. People using honey for tea enjoy it because it sweetens the tea but does not add any other flavors.
Besides a food sweetener, what is honey good for? Dr. Mercola says that there are many benefits of raw, local honey that include but are not limited to allergy relief, boosting energy levels, as a cough medicine, as a scalp treatment, and treating wounds. The medicinal properties of honey are well-known and are as ancient as human history.
