Honey Tasting is a wonderful family activity.

Waxing Kara’s Honey Tasting Tower tells the story of the flowers surrounding the hive. Fruity? Nutty? Spicy? Each honey has its own unique flavor profile, based on geography and nectar source.

Think of this honey gift as an interactive guided honey tasting, to learn about all of honey’s complexities. Not your average honey gift set, it’s an excellent way to share the story of honey and spread the word about bees.

Our Honey Tasting is a collection of small batch, artisanal and varietal honey in limited supply, packaged in a novel transparent tube accompanied by a booklet of tasting notes and suggestions on how to best use each honey raw and in cooking.

Bees travel from flower to flower, collecting nectar for the hive and creating nature’s “liquid gold” that beekeepers harvest. Honey never spoils, largely due to its acidity and lack of water. Archeologists found honey in Egyptian tombs thought to be thousands of years old, still edible.

Get the full honey story for the person who has everything. Perfect for Rosh Hashanah and as a Hostess gift.

Includes 5- 2 ounce portions of raw honey and a booklet of pairing suggestions
American made
Measures 10 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter.

Every Honey Tells a Story

I started beekeeping six years ago and covered all of the details in my blog and my YouTube channel. My mentor, Dale Large, a fifty-plus-year beekeeping veteran has taken the lead with my apiary and I am his devoted protégé. I am blessed and humbled by the amazing honey that the bees are making – from our farming efforts, and continue to expand to increase the amount of honey that I can offer from my own apiary on Chesterhaven Beach Farm.

About Small Batch Artisanal and Varietal Honey

Like wine reflects the complexity of the soil and weather, honey tells the story of the hive surroundings in the same way. Our Waxing Kara® honey is nature’s blend from Chesterhaven Beach Farm. Each year, we add more plants and trees to support the bees. This is a years-long process, and each year the honey will be different.

Varietal Honeys (made with nectar from one type of crop) are true labors of love by the beekeeper, who carefully sets hives in the center of cultivated fields for bees to provide pollination services just for the brief time of blossoming. Since bees will fly up to six miles to find nectar, the challenge in achieving varietal honey is to provide enough crops of one type to satisfy the hive.

We don’t do any fancy blending, colorizing or infusing, nor do we pasteurize or boil honey. Pasteurization destroys all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and minerals in honey. We sell only raw honey that’s been minimally filtered. We grow our own and buy from other small growers to keep pace with growing demand for honey in our region. We bottle, label and package by hand at our Honey House in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Care of Honey

Honey is a “perfect” food with an indefinite shelf life. Store in airtight glass, away from direct sunlight. Do not refrigerate. It’s not unusual for some honey to crystalize over time. It’s not a bad thing, it proves the honey is raw. If cloudy or crystallized honey doesn’t appeal to you, reconstitute by placing the glass jar in a pan of water that has been brought to a boil and removed from heat.

    I brought this with me to a dinner party as a hostess gift, instead of bringing a bottle of wine. We opened it and started tasting the different honey before dinner and after dinner we enjoyed more. Such fun!

    We gave these as favors at a recent dinner party, and they were absolutely perfect! I made bite-sized carrot cakes to go along with them… I think that’s going to be a new staple for parties around here. The included desciption of each (and suggested pairings) is fascinating and unique as well! It is really fun to try the different varieties side by side. Please tell those bees we are fans of their work.

    Everyone loved the opportunity to try 5 different “flavors” . We had fun comparing and it’s amazing how each honey was unique. Once you taste Kara’s honey there is no turning back. I can’t imagine buying “regular” honey now that I’ve tasted Kara’s. The Tasting Tower is an awesome gift and I look forward to sharing with family and friends. My new go to gift.

    Purchased this for my wife as a gift. She liked being able to taste the different honey side by side. The buckwheat was almost solid, wasn’t sure if that was right or not.

      Hi Daniel!

      Thank you for your reviews. They are so helpful when people are undecided on making gift-giving decisions.

      The Buckwheat Honey sometimes crystalizes. It’s a natural process that happens to certain honey. If you don’t like scooping it out, it’s easy to fix and I wrote all about it here:


      Thanks again!
