Honey Tasting For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Cheat Sheet / Updated 10-27-2021

Tasting honey is not the same as eating honey. Tasting honey is as much an art as it is a science. Trained honey sensory experts objectively evaluate honey using a method that assesses visual, olfactory, gustatory, and texture experiences. The method and skills required are similar to how a wine sommelier would taste and evaluate wines. Having the right tools for honey tasting is not only helpful, but it also adds to your enjoyment of a tasting session.
