The ingredients are interesting - as the name hints, all contain honey in some form or other, made into a thick and sumptuous ganache, but although delicious I have to say I couldn't tell much about the ingredients from the flavour when we tried them at the weekend. Most interesting to me was the green-topped one, made with honey from Tilia miqueliana, a Japanese linden that is rather rare in cultivation here. Unfortunately I couldn't distinguish anything tilioid in the chocolate, but it was paired with tangy lemon and the whole thing was superb. Alas, there is only one layer in the box!
