This year our honey is mostly basswood honey, and folks tell us it has a "lemony taste".   I find it pleasant tasting, just a little on the tangy side, but some folks don't like it.   Have you found customers who don't care for basswood honey?  Also - and here's the mystery - some jars of honey when you open them have a sort of bleach-like smell to them, even though I did not use any bleach to wash the jars!   Other jars do not have this smell.   Is this what basswood honey smells like?  I am wondering why some jars are this way and others aren't.  Has anyone else had any "odd" smells to their basswood honey?
