Wildflowers provide bees with an excellent source of both pollen and nectar.
Meghalaya is home to many flora, both alpine and temperate, supplying pollen and nectar. Rainfall and cool climatic conditions also affect the flowers growing every season which gives the honey a unique identity.
Zizira's Honey is pure and raw. It's obtained from the sun-soaked pollen and nectar collected by bees in the summer months.
We sourced this honey from many trusted beekeepers, within Meghalaya, some of these villages include; Thad Village, Tynnai Village and Wahkhen village amongst the other villages.

It has a dark golden color. You will love the smooth consistency and the rich sweet & warm aftertaste that lingers in your taste buds.
The beekeepers plant the flowers that the bees love or place the hive in a habitat filled with wildflowers. Hence the flavor of this honey comes from the wildflowers growing naturally around the bee's nest.
Pure Wildflower Raw Honey:
Note: Raw honey might crystallize overtime. This means that you may notice that your honey turned into small sugar crystals. This is because while the beekeeper extracts the honey, small pieces of hive or bee pollen will remain in the honey that starts the crystallization process. These are safe to consume. If you prefer liquid honey, warm the honey bottle in a water container. Be sure to heat it to not more the 40°C, else you might lose all the valuable nutrients in the process.
Pasteurized or Processed honey, on the other hand, is filtered for the perfect looks. But you lose all the nutrients and health benefits you can get from it.
Whether you are preparing a marinade or topping a cheesecake, Zizira Pure Wildflower Raw Honey is a seamless compliment. Whichever way you use this honey, it will tingle your taste buds.
