Mānuka is the queen of New Zealand honeys, well-known both at home and overseas. Its colour can range from dark cream to dark brown and it has a distinctive earthy mineral flavour. It has also been described as woody or nutty in taste, with toffee notes. It is the “Champagne” of honey and the one we are most proud.
Kānuka a closely related but lesser known relative of Mānuka, Kānuka honey is similar in both colour and flavour. It has earthy bush notes and a toffee-type finish. The best value honey in New Zealand but one day will catch up with Mānuka’s popularity.
Rātā honey is pale cream in colour and one of New Zealand’s sweetest honeys. It has a lime flavour profile, with some detecting ‘salty’ flavour notes. Produced in much lower volumes; Rātā honey is a treat for something different.
Made from New Zealand’s famed Christmas tree, creamed pōhutukawa honey is off-white in colour with a clean, floral taste profile. It has been described as being like butterscotch. Trees in coastal regions, like pōhutukawa, can sometimes produce honey with a slightly salty taste. This is the taste of summer on North Island beaches. This is a real favorite of many New Zealanders.
Kāmahi Kāmahi is pale, lemon-yellow in colour and has a rich, sweet taste with a buttery finish. It pairs well with camembert, washed rind cheeses or goat’s feta. It works well as a base for sweet sauces or as a sweetener in spicy dishes. Kāmahi is mostly produced on the West Coast of the South Island. Another honey not well known around the world but a favorite once tried.
Clover is one of New Zealand’s favourite honeys. It ranges from pure white to pale gold in colour and has the clean, mild, traditional flavour that people associate with the honeys of childhood. It comes in both creamed and liquid forms, with the creamed form known for its ‘fudge-like’ characteristics. It’s a favourite for spreading on toast and a tradition to see on every New Zealand breakfast table. Clover honey is a traditional farm honey from both the North and South Island.
Produced from the flowers of the thyme herb in Central Otago, this is a pale, amber honey, with a very strong, distinctive herbal taste. This honey works well drizzled over roast vegetables, in vinaigrettes or stirred into pumpkin soup. It’s a honey you either love or hate but one thing is for sure; you will never forget it!
Made from the New Zealand honey suckle flower, Rewarewa is light amber in colour with hints of orange. It has complex herbaceous flavours and a rich, malty taste which makes it a great natural sweetener for teas. Generally considered a ladies honey; this one can sweeten up anyone’s day!
Honeydew honey is made from nectar that is excreted by insects, rather than from flower nectar. It is also called ‘forest honey’, ‘pine honey’ or ‘fir honey’. Honeydew is medium-dark amber in colour and tastes complex and treacly. Some have described its flavour as being like ‘Christmas cake’. Apples, pears and blue cheeses match well with honeydew honey, and it can be a great addition to marinades. Honeydew honey is predominantly sourced from West Coast beech forests. It generally takes longer than average to crystallize so a popular blended honey for your favorite liquid squeeze honey’s.
Deep gold to orange in colour, this honey is described as tasting like rosehip syrup or very sweet golden syrup. It has a rich texture and has been described as tasting like white chocolate melting off the tongue. It makes a delicious topping for pancakes or ice cream. Try it next time at the breakfast table instead of Maple Syrup!
