Rubbed with a blend of black tea and pure bergamot oil, leave it to the Beehive boys to create another unique, delicious cheese! The creaminess of this Jersey cow cheese immediately delights the palate and the complexities of the tea-rubbed rind continue through the finish. The sweet fragrance of orange blossoms in April comes to mind. The creamy nature of this cheese will burst in your mouth and the slight citrus undertone will create an opportunity for some wonderful pairings. We suggest full-bodied fruit-forward wines,chardonnays, pilsners and even chocolaty stouts. Shave TeaHive on a fennel salad for a real treat.
When you take a bite of Beehive Cheese, it melts like butter in your mouth- that's because it's made from some of the creamiest and cleanest milk in Utah, lovingly crafted into specialty cheese by a family who shares a passion for the artisan way of life. In 2005, brothers-in-law Tim Welsh and Pat Ford left the fast-paced world of software and real estate seeking a more simple way of life as artisan cheese makers. They traded in their grinding traffic commute for quiet mornings sitting with 500 gallons of farm-fresh milk. They gave up briefcases and laptops for the romance of making hand-crafted cheese: hours spent mixing and warming milk, feeling it thicken and envelope the room with the sweet smell of custard. Days spent following natural rhythms: waking before dawn to welcome new milk and feeling the tired ache of sore muscles at day's end and months waiting with an artisan's patience for their cheeses to ripen to perfection.
