Botanical name – Ziziphus Spina-Christi,(also known as Lote tree, Christ’s Thorn, Jujube or Nabkh tree)
Taste – The distinctive taste and fragrance are attributed to the nectar of the flowers of the Sidr tree, which has butterscotch and caramel notes and the soil the tree grows from in Yemen.
Colour – thick honey with golden light colour, which darkens and turns reddish over time.
You can find Sidr trees in other parts of the world but it is Raw Yemeni Sidr honey that is known to be the best (and most expensive) in the world. It is often compared to New Zealand’s Manuka honey as it too carries many medicinal and health benefits. We only work with beekeepers who do everything by hand preserving its vital live nutrients that not only give us its special flavour but retain its healing properties too.
This special raw honey is reported to be particularly good in aiding liver problems, stomach ulcers, respiratory infections, digestive problems, infected wounds and burns and it helps strengthens the immune system and promotes general health and vitality.
Raw Sidr Do’ani is considered as the most expensive honey in the world, not only because its numerous health benefits but also because of the remote area where this tree is located.
