TA Score: 10
Honey’s antimicrobial quality is measured by the term “Total Activity (TA)”.
The higher the TA score the greater the antimicrobial strength.
Most unpasteurised and coarse filtered ("raw") honey types possess some activity level, usually on a scale from 1 to 20.
Honeys with Total Activity over 10+ are considered to have substantial antimicrobial properties.
After Black Bee's founders Paul & Chris met in an office 15 years, but their interest in beekeeping led them to London’s rooftops and gardens, where they cared for over a million bees.
After starting out as hobbiests producing honey from the different postcodes in London, they expanded their work into Black Bee Honey - named after the original British bee.
Almost all honey found on supermarket shelves is a blend of the cheapest EU and Non EU honeys. Artisan honey production is a challenging, time-consuming process, partiularly in Britain where our climate makes production quantities uncertain. However, the end result is something far beyond most people's expectations of what honey can taste like.
