BZZZPH

BZZZ PH specialises in local honey like no other brand does. Dedicated to sourcing local, they offer delicious Northern honey from either the Mountain Province or Benguet. Their products are delightfully healthy and their exciting infusions mustn't be missed. Check out their chilli honey or their cinnamon honey if you're looking for a little kick to go with your tea (or pancakes!).

Grannies

Grannies sources their honey from two different provinces in the Philippines. Their Dark Golden Honey is sourced from Quezon, while their Yellow Golden Honey comes from Ligwan Bees in Palawan. Though both are delicious, we're particularly loving their Dark Golden Honey With Honeycomb, which as you might have guessed, bottles a healthy chunk of honeycomb into the bottle. Their Chilli Infused Honey offers an interesting taste profile that pairs well with pizza and chicken.

Tobee's Apiary

We love hearing about the different varieties of honey that's available on the market. After all, honey doesn't just come from one flower or plant, but from multiple varieties; and each of these boast a unique flavour profile that can be fun (and delicious) to explore. Tobee's Apiary, available on Ritual PH, is sourced from La Union and can be bought according to which flower or plant you're most interested in. They have Sunflower Honey, Mango Honey, Molave Honey, and Acacia Honey, all of which sounds like an absolute delight at tea-time.

Connie's Kitchen

Their specialty gourmet tuyo isn't the only thing that we love from Connie's Kitchen. This New Manila institution also offers pantry staples such as pure raw honey, sourced from "honey hunters" in Quezon province. These honey hunters look for fresh sources in the forest to ensure the best quality for everyone's teatime staples.
