Honey infusion is a combination of herbs and spices with raw honey. This process includes mixing of ingredients together which leads to the formation of bubbles and froth in the honey. It is a natural phenomenon that occurs during the processing and packaging of these honey infusions.
When packed in containers, the natural ingredients get infused together and produces a unique and delicious flavour in the honey that gets enhanced with time. The longer you keep your honey-infused, the stronger the flavour will be.
To avoid such circumstances, honey infusions should be sealed properly after opening and should be stored in a cool and dry area. Addition of moisture or water to it will make the honey go bad and lead to a fermentation process which gives a sour aftertaste.
