Umami Mart Co-Founder, Yoko’s pride and joy (her bee hives) produced this golden honey. Depending on the season, her bees feed on rosemary, plum blossoms, ceanothus, ivy, black berry blossom, or eucalyptus - the quintessential East Bay garden diet. Drizzle on cheesecake, stir into Darjeeling tea, or enjoy a spoonful a day to keep the allergies away!
With two active hives, Yoko is now offering honey from Oakland and El Cerrito! If you live locally, we recommend choosing the honey closer to your residence, which will help keep allergies at bay.
Tasting notes for Oakland 2021: Amber hue, maple aroma, and flavors of peach and nectarine. Recommended for residents in Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro.
Tasting notes for El Cerrito 2021: Champagne hue, earthy aroma, with flavors of melon and muscat grapes. Recommended for residents in Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, and Richmond.
Yoko recommends putting about 1 teaspoon of honey directly onto your face and hands for 30 minutes to reinvigorate your skin.
Yoko has been an amateur beekeeper since 2014. Read more about the harvest.
