Other NZ honeys

New Zealand is much more than Mānuka! In this remote country you can find a wide range of tasty and unique varieties of honey.
Do you dare?


Rewarewa (Knightia excelsa) is a honey suckle tree, which gives a special tasty honey rich in beneficial properties.

Rewarewa honey has a light amber colour and malty taste which makes it a great sweetener for hot or cold drinks. Chefs especially favour it for savoury and spicy dishes also.

But it is not just a matter of flavour! Dr Peter Molan discovered that Rewarewa honey has the highest levels of anti-oxidant activity and peroxide-based antibiotic, so consumers also use it as a food supplement.


This honey comes from the pōhutukawa tree, widely known in New Zealand as the iconic Kiwi Christmas tree. Pōhutukawa honey is creamy, off-white in colour with a clean, floral taste and a surprising salty finish that comes from the coastal location of the pōhutukawa trees.


Kāmahi honey is New Zealand’s elegant honey. It is pale, bright amber in colour and has a full-body sweet taste with a buttery finish and a soft texture. It smells like caramel or toffee, with some slight vanilla notes.

 It works well as a base for sweet sauces, a balancer for spicy dishes or as a perfect coffee sweetener. Our Kāmahi honey is mostly harvested on the South Island’s West Coast.


Kānuka honey is a relative of the famous Mānuka, similar in colour and flavour and one of New Zealand’s best-kept secrets.

As well as for Mānuka, researches have been also done in Kānuka honey, discovering high levels of hydrogen peroxide and anti-inflammatory properties unique of these kiwi honey, making it effective as a skin treatment.


Tāwari (Ixerba brexinoides) beautiful plants are only found in a few parts of the North Island of New Zealand. Tāwari honey has a light colour and matches perfectly with cheeses and desserts.


Clover honey is one of New Zealand’s most popular honeys, usually consumed as a breakfast table honey. It has a light colour, a smooth texture and a delicate flavour which make this honey a very easy honey to consume and suitable for all tastes. We collect this honey from both the North and South Island.


Honeydew honey (also called ‘forest honey’, ‘pine honey’ or ‘fir honey’) is made from nectar that is excreted by insects, rather than from flower nectar, and it is sourced by our beekeepers from West Coast beech forests.

It is medium-dark amber in colour and has a distinctive and intense aroma of the woods; and due to its low crystallization, it is widely used in honey blends for squeezers.

 Honeydew honey matches perfectly with apples, pears, cheeses as well as salads, desserts and yoghurts.


Thyme is widely known for helping coughs and bronchitis, and it is considered as an antiviral, antimicrobial and antibacterial herb.

 Our thyme honey comes from the thyme flowers in Central Otago, in the South Island of New Zealand. This amber honey, as a member of the mint family, has strong, distinctive herbal taste.


Rātā honey is pale cream in colour and one of New Zealand’s sweetest honeys as well as a rare one. It has smooth and buttery taste, and a ‘salty’ flavour, as rātā trees are located in coastal regions of New Zealand.
