The class gave me a more complex understanding of honey and a greater appreciation for it!

I realised that my tongue needed much more practise distinguishing flavours, especially delicate flavours of honey. The tasting was an experience I probably would have never had if I hadn't gone to this class. It's worth it if you love honey - and honey is so delicious, why wouldn't you?
