Salvia mellifera is a perennial shrub that grows in Southern California and northern Baja California, Mexico. To produce enough blossoms for honeybees to make a crop of Black Sage Honey, this desert plant must get just the right amount of rain at just the right time of year. Many years can pass before black sage plants experience this delicate balance of rainfall and aridness, which is one reason why Black Sage Honey is so special.

Black Sage Honey is slightly earthy and can be described as savory with notes of pepper. It also can contain notes of apple, berry, and vanilla. The subtle flavor and high level of fructose sugars make Black Sage Honey ideal for tea and coffee. It also pairs well with wine and cheese.
