To guarantee the integrity of our honey and to ensure we don't kill all the natural goodness in our honey we do not allow the temp to exceed 40c or 105f.
There are many different varieties of honey produced in Western Australia. Some of the more commonly known varieties coming out of West Australia are the forest tree honeys like Jarrah, Red Gum/Marri, White Gum, Karri and Blackbutt however there are so many more amazing honeys being produced in West Australia.
Lia's Honey tends to focus mainly on the forest honeys but we do offer different varieties pending on the availability and the seasons.

Honey is ready-to-eat straight from the hive, as natural as a sweetener can be – no processing necessary. Not only is it produced naturally, without the interference of human hands, honey’s chemical structure is more easily broken down digestively than its processed alternatives.
Honey in its crystalized state is absolutely safe to eat. Crystalized honey is 100% safe to eat and can easily be returned to a liquid state by gently warming. Try not to heat your honey above 40c or 105f to prevent killing all the goodness that is in the honey.
To avoid killing all the goodness in honey when using honey as a sweetener we recommend that after pouring your hot drink that you wait a few mins until the drink is cool to the touch before adding the honey, this will prevent killing all the goodness in the honey. This is especially important if you are using a high TA level honey in your hot drinks and maybe not so important if your using a honey with low TA levels.
Red Gum Honey
Red Gum Honey (also known as Marri Honey) is another unique Australian honey that also often tests with very high TA levels. It's produced by bees visiting the delicate, creamy white flowers of the Eucalyptus Camaldulenisis tree (also known as the River Red Gum Tree) that is native to many parts of Australia.
It has a rich golden color bursting with robust flavor profiles. Its definitely a big favorite amongst honey lovers the world over and one of Lia's personal favorites too.
