Gift Ideas: Single-Source ‘Maryiza’ Ethiopian Tree Honey

Maryiza is the honey brand used by the world’s top restaurants such as The Inn at Little Washington, as well as distributed by the world’s top specialty produce and food distributors such as Natoora, purveyor to New York’s finest restaurants.

With the recent evolution of social gatherings, Maryiza’s tasting set offers a virtual but sensory shared experience from the comfort of home. Together, friends and families can explore, appreciate, and find inspiration from the many flavor dimensions of single-origin honey.

Like single-vineyard wines or single-origin coffees, Maryiza’s collection of 100% natural, single-origin, raw jars of honey are directly and ethically sourced from indigenous tree flora within Ethiopia’s ancient Afromontane forests. Every purchase incentivizes local communities to sustainably manage their forests, whilst improving their economic livelihood.

Showcasing wildly rich facets of flavors, the four different varietals in Maryiza’s tasting set are deeply aromatic, uniquely textured, with distinctive notes of praline and orange blossom to wild mushrooms and tamarind.

The special tasting set is a great introduction to the nuanced world of Maryiza’s single-origin kinds of honey. Priced at $32, the set includes four different 3oz (85g) jars of Abalo Tree Honey, Bissana Tree Honey, Grawa Tree Honey, and Geteme Tree Honey, as well as tasting notes and access to Maryiza’s digital tasting wheel.
