Top 10 Best Types of Honey

Honey is a yellowish-brown fluid made by bees and insects collecting flower nectar. They're not only delicious but they also are very good for your health. Here are many delicious honey flavors.
The Top Ten
1 Clover Honey

Clover honey is one of the most popular types of honey in America, despite not originating from there. It is floral and sweet, with a bit of a sour aftertaste. Clover honey is now harvested in many areas of the world, and its properties vary depending on the source. Some clover honey is amber-colored, while it can also be water-white.

This honey also has strong antioxidant properties and contains flavonols (which support lung and heart function) and phenolic acids (supporting the nervous system).

2 Buckwheat Honey

This honey is made in numerous Northern states. Its dark brown color tips you off to the fact that it's strong and full-bodied, making it a popular choice among connoisseurs. It's a good choice for marinades that have to stand up to flavorful meats, and it's one of the best honeys for making mead.

3 Acacia Honey

Acacia honey is a light and clear honey that takes a delicate floral taste from the nectar of the blossoms. The high concentration of fructose helps it retain its liquid state for a long time. Its low sucrose content makes it widely popular among diabetics. With a rich source of anti-inflammatory properties, it is suitable for treating respiratory disorders.

4 Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is taken from Manuka plants. It has rich antibacterial properties that aid in treating stomach ulcers, sore throats, colds, etc. It is known to have many health benefits and is one of the healthiest honey brands.

What! How dare you not have this at number one. You should do some research before making this list. (I'm kidding, by the way).

5 Wildflower Honey

Wildflower honey is taken from the nectar of numerous species of flowers or blossoms. The taste, aroma, and flavor vary from season to season, depending on which flowers are present at the time and the type of nectar that is collected.

6 Orange Blossom Honey

This variety of honey is widely available, originating in Spain and Mexico but now produced in warmer climate states. It's a light, mild honey with a citrusy taste and fruity aroma. Many unscrupulous manufacturers add artificial scents and flavors to orange blossom honey. If it smells too much like perfume when you open it, it's probably been doctored.

There are so many interesting types of honey out there! I've never tried this one, but I bet it tastes divine.

7 Eucalyptus Honey

This honey originally came from Australia but is now also found in California. It tastes distinctively herbal and somewhat medicinal. Its color does vary, but it is good for fighting inflammation and helping heal wounds.

That's one good honey for the immune system.

8 Linden Honey

Linden honey is initially produced in Europe and is known as Basswood Honey in America. However, Linden Honey is rarer since the trees it's made from were harvested for wood. This honey helps calm and detoxify the body as well as treat bronchitis.

9 Aster Honey
10 Sage Honey

A vast majority of sage honey is from California, but it's also available elsewhere. It's light to moderate colored and crystallizes very slowly. Therefore, commercial bottlers blend it with other varieties to prevent them from solidifying too quickly. It is not only good for digestion, but it also has antioxidant properties.

The Contenders
11 Avocado Honey
12 Sourwood Honey

Sourwood honey is sourced from the sourwood trees of Southeast and Midwestern states. This honey has a sweet, buttery, slightly spicy taste that resembles caramel with a beautiful amber color. This honey serves as a good antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

13 Tupelo Honey
