Citrus honey is made by bees with the nectar collected from different kinds of citrus trees, for example orange, lemon, mandarin. As sooon as it is produced and is still liquid it has a very pale colour, varying from colourless to straw yellow. When it is crystallised it can be white or clear beige. Its taste, very sweet with a pleasant sourness, recalls the characteristics of its typical aroma. It has a distinctive floral scent reminiscent of the flowers from which it is produced while a more fruity scent is developed later on.
