Our Anthea’s has been awarded by the Guild of Fine Food two 2-star Great Taste Awards for its Raw Thyme Honey and its Handmade Honey-Almond-Sesame Bar (aka Pasteli), which means that judges described them both as outstanding! Some of the Judges’ comments included the following:


For Anthea’s Raw Thyme Honey:


“Wonderful herbal nose and a light amber honey with a good run. Light, floral and herbal on the palate. Sweet, not overly sweet because of the florals. Rich and quite delicious. Floral intensity.”


“A very clear and smooth honey, absolutely meltingly gorgeous – crystal clear and full of thyme flower blossom. The mouthfeel just wraps around the palate. Clean in flavour and appearance.”


For Anthea’s Handmade Honey-Almond-Sesame Bar:


“Lovely colour, with a warm fragrant aroma from the honey. Good quality ingredients help to deliver a very satisfying mouth feel and flavour. There is a length of flavour, particularly supported by the subtlety of the orange zest, that gives you an almost marmalade influenced development. To move even further we would have liked more almonds…but it is really really very good.”


“Densely packed with a moist interior. Great eat, stunning natural orange zest with zing.”
