The Shahi Lychee is an indigenous crop of north Bihar and recently got a Geographical Indication (GI) status. As the flowers bloom only once a year the honey can only be extracted once a year. What’s more, North Bihar is the only place in the world where it can be made. The flavour of any honey depends on where the bees have collected the pollen from which in this case is collected from Shahi Lychee Orchard which is an indigenous crop of North Bihar, and Indian Summer Honey is the only brand in the world that brings you this product!

Our beekeepers follow the best beekeeping practices. It is 100% raw, natural, and unheated. We do not add water or homogenise flavours to process our honey. We use sustainable practices to ensure that our honey is of the highest quality. We keep our bees happy by leaving some honey behind in the bee box for them each time we extract. As we acquire this honey only in springtime we also ensure not to disturb the bees in the winter, as they feed on honey during that time.

Our honey is 100% natural with no added flavours, no antibiotics or chemical/pesticides and preservatives or stabilisers. No added sugar or sweetener. 100% Raw & pure. Each jar of Indian Summer Shahi Lychee Honey is properly washed, sterilised and packed with care in an extremely clean environment.

Don’t be surprised if you find some white fluffy, frothy foam, full of goodness on top of our honey, this is a sign that our honey is not only raw but also has the presence of proteins which causes honey to have a lower surface tension than it would have otherwise, which produces a marked tendency to foam... and encourages the formation of fine air bubbles.

Our Lychee honey is also low on natural sugar thus making it even more healthy

For the Indian Summer family our honey is not just a brand or a product it’s a three generation long legacy of love and care. It all started back in 1919 when our grandfather freedom fighter Dhawaja Prasad Sahu, also commonly known as bapu of Bihar. While being one of the key founders of Khadi Gram Udyog wanted to do something for the local beekeepers and farmers of his home town Muzaffarpur, in North Bihar, India. So, he introduced and created a market for The Shahi Lychee honey. We are the only ones in India selling this raw honey...as it is produced in limited quantity and is not accessible to everyone. Our Mission is to create a more sustainable environment for the farmers and beekeepers of Bihar. Providing access will help them increase profitability, enhance their livelihood directly or indirectly. Part of our proceeds goes to educate and improve the livelihood of beekeepers and marginal farmers of Bihar. We also plan to educate the children on the importance of bees to the environment.
