"In my beekeeping I produce three different types of honey: two of them are single-origin and one mixed honey. From harvest to bottling, this honey is characterized by a particularly gentle processing method. My honey is only minimally filtered before filling, so that all enzymes and minerals are retained. Honey from URBAN BEES is a high-quality, healthy food that differs significantly in terms of quality from conventional industrial honey. All honeys come from our own production from bee locations in the greater Berlin area."
Linde Honey
The linden tree from Berlin is a spicy honey with a minty note and a very aromatic, strong taste. Linden honey is light golden to golden brown in colour. Due to its high glucose content (dextrose), linden honey tends to coarse crystallization in the glass and is therefore refined by regular stirring before bottling.

The lime tree is the largest single plant in Berlin. It is thanks to the urban development in the post-war period that beekeepers were also consulted when choosing the city's greenery. Since then, Berlin has been considered one of the most linden-rich locations in Germany. In some years the lime trees not only supply rich nectar through their flowers, but also through the honeydew on the leaves produced by aphids. The higher the proportion of honeydew, the darker the lime honey is in colour and the more pronounced the malt note is in taste.
Robinie Honey
The Robinia from Berlin is characterised by its very light, pale yellow colour and fine sweetness. Robinia honey has a delicate floral aroma and a mild taste, which is why its honey is ideal for sweetening food and tea.

The Robinia, also known as Silver Rain, is the first of two large single plants found in the capital. Robinia honey remains liquid for a very long time and hardly tends to crystallize because of its high proportion of fructose (fruit sugar). This is why Robinia honey is also bottled without stirring.
Spring Honey
Spring from Urban Bees is a fragrant, medium bodied and fruity honey, mostly golden yellow in colour, with an engaging sweetness and delicate spiciness. Before bottling, the honey is gently refined by regular stirring, depending on the vintage, until it has a creamy, soft texture.

Spring from Berlin is characterized each year by an immeasurable variety of blooming spring flowers. Those first flowers of the year in Berlin are mainly horse chestnut and maple, as well as a wide variety of fruit and meadow flowers. Their shares of honey are different and unique in each bee year, depending on the seasonal course. Accordingly, the honey colour can vary from yellow to light brown and the taste is also different and unique every year.
