Sage honey can come from many different species of the sage plant. Sage shrubs usually grow along the California coast and in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Sage honey has a mild, delicate flavour. It is generally white or water-white in colour. It is quite sweet in flavour, and pairs extremely well with strong cheeses.
