Buckwheat honey has a rich dark brown color. The darker the honey, the greater the content of antioxidants. Buckwheat honey is said to be the most nutritious honey found in the US, in terms of antioxidant content. The taste is delicious and reminds me of the taste of partially melted juggery. (Juggery is a healthful sugar substitute made from the honey of the flowers of palm trees.) Cashews dipped in this buckwheat honey is delicious. I can't find it locally, and IHerbs has fantastic price.

The honey is raw and must be good for health. But I can't get used to the smell which is strange unlike any other honeys that I tried. Anyway I didn't pay too much for it even if it is wasted. I might try to use it in some raw recipes where the smell is masked by other ingredients. Do not cook with any honey.

蕎麥花蜜的抗氧化作用是所有蜂蜜之首，含豐富礦物質和至少18種氨基酸，能夠補血、軟化血管。 美國名醫奧茲醫生提出蕎麥花蜜是能提升免疫力的最佳食物之一，推薦每天服用1茶匙蕎麥花蜜，直接食用或者加入溫水都行，便可令你安然無恙地度過流感季節。 蕎麥花蜜被推薦作為止咳水的替代物，因為它更有療效也更安全，尤其對於6歲以下的小童，臨睡前服用蕎麥蜜的效果比任何止咳水都好。

Buckwheat honey is a strong flavor and scent. It is very different from the other flavored honeys or even plain raw honey that I'm used to. The other member of household enjoyed it. I'd never buy it again. Will consider using it for skincare since I hate the flavor. It is authentic raw by the not too runny texture.

heard that buckwheat honey contains high anti-oxide content, but unfortunately the taste is not so great.

Helps immune system work harder. Not the best taste though. It is never that tasty when healthy so you would have to pick one or another here.

This product literally stinks - it does not smell nice. But the flavour is sweet and not very flavourful, which is good. This I believe is not recommended for cooking, but drinking. Initially I bought this to help soothe my throat as I always get sore throat and coughs, I have yet to see this take effect.
