Participation in the competition is not limited to honey, Tracybee products must achieve elements from taste to quality to conquer the jury. In particular, the excellent Tracybee honey must comply with European export standards, as evidenced by the test document from the Intertek laboratory (Germany). This is also proof that the product is completely safe for the consumer.
“Having won Tracybee’s Rambutan Flower Honey at the 2021 London Honey Awards, we clearly understand that Vietnam’s single flower honey lines have different strengths and all need to be treated properly. That is why we selected this excellent honey as a good candidate for this award. At the same time, Tracybee wants to promote it worldwide: ‘Vietnam is not just a stream of bees,'” said a Tracybee representative.
“Le Chi” in the Sino-Vietnamese dictionary is another name for lychee, a popular fruit of tropical countries. Among them, the varieties grown in Vietnam are the most famous. After many years of experimenting and comparing the quality of honey in each growing region, Tracybee decided to choose Luc Ngan as the birthplace of the excellent Tracybee honey line.
A downside to growing excellent honey is that this type of honey is quite runny. Therefore, in order for the honey to have a high consistency, Tracybee’s professional beekeepers must wait for the honey to mature in the hive before beginning the harvest. With the strong notes of rambutan flower honey, the powerful sweetness and sweet aroma of coffee flower honey, flower honey is the perfect balance with a bright light yellow color, delicate aroma and sweet taste.
