Honey is one of the most cost-effective Russian souvenirs.
But what else is worth buying from Russia?
As we all know, Russians have no resistance to sweets, and they love honey as much as they do. It is no wonder that they love it so much, because Russian honey is the best honey in the world, both in terms of appearance and taste and nutrition.
Russia has some of the best honey producing regions in the northern hemisphere (such as the Far East, the Caucasus, etc.) and bee species (Far Eastern bees, Caucasian black fronds, etc.).
Russia has a strict food safety management and conscience in the food industry, every step of the way, from the bee farm to the filling and from the filling to the place of sale.
Honey can be consumed in various ways. The quality of honey is best reflected in simple honey water. Add a spoonful of honey in the water, stir it slightly and the fragrance of honey spreads in the water. From the moment of entrance, the sweet and unctuous taste fills the whole mouth, then smoothly, without the slightest resistance, it slides into the throat, with a rich honey flavor until it enters the belly. Since I tried the honey water once, I could never quit.
