We have received many emails which mentioned curiosity of the taste of these two honey; kelulut and tualang.

Zakwan, the owner of kelulut farm has not just produced but has deep interest in the honey. Ge does his own research and observation of trigona bee honey in his farms and just like the rest of good learners, he learns from others with more experience. He sets a high standard in producing quality honey and emphasizes on the importance of packaging the honey properly. Zakwan can be found through his FB: puretrigonahoney. His farm is in Bukit Depu, Terengganu. He makes soap and other kelulut honey biproducts. The honey tastes amazing and I got myself a rare clear, trigona honey. Through friendship, you often receive things money can't buy.
Tha taste of the honey is sour and sometimes "salty" as you cannot really filter its pollen out of the honey. You will always see some sediment floating on the top of honey layer and that's the accumulated pollen which is very fine and could not be filter out at even 0.2 nm filter.
2. 500g of Tualang Honey
If you have heard before Tualang trees, which also known as Koompasia excelsa is in the verge of extinction due to deforestation for timber. Its majestic size of a tree makes it a beautiful wood and its strength is appealing for structure building. It is one of the Dipterocarp which is now being being replanted by one of our NGO - Tropical Rainforest Conservation and Research Centre.
For more information of our tualang tree, please read it here.
In this package, we offer you our black tualang which receives many compliment from our customers. Obviously they are liking the taste and the texture of the honey and suggested their friends to purchase from us.
So we take this opportunity to introduce the black tualang to the honey enthusiasts, so they can enjoy one of the best tasting honey among the tualang.
3. 500g of Gelam Honey
I know that it will bias to say that Gelam Honey is the best honey of all just because I personally favour it. I like the taste of the honey which is strong, but mildly sweet and comes with beautiful aroma as you stick your nose to it. I have a long story of my expedition of harvesting gelam and I have put most of the story here.
Our journey to harvest gelam was a beautiful memory, whether I was influenced by the journey to especially love it, I think you will know when you taste it.
