So what is orange blossom honey exactly? As the name suggests, orange blossom honey is honey that is derived from a citrus source. Many people falsely assume that orange blossom honey is made by combining oranges and honey; however, it is actually the leaf of the orange tree that makes this honey what it is.
The orange tree blossoms in the spring, and this is when bees work to produce this tasty variety of honey. It has a very agreeable and delicate aroma and is often also used in perfumes, teas, bridal bouquets, and wreaths. It can even be found in some beers! The colour of orange blossom honey typically ranges from light amber to a golden brown. This honey is very popular, and most supermarkets and grocery stores carry name brand versions as well as raw orange blossom honey versions from local farms.
