This gift-pack combines our Mānuka and Rewarewa Honeys from the pristine native forests of Te Urewera, New Zealand. Rewarewa for its packed full of beneficial properties, with a deep colour and a rich, full flavour; Mānuka for its properties.
Our Rewarewa Honey is made by our hard-working bees from the Rewarewa tree (Knightia excelsa), which is our indigenous honeysuckle tree in New Zealand. The Rewarewa tree grows in groves in well-lit parts of our forest, and stands above the forest shrubbery as a fine tree of up to 30 metres in height.
The flowers of the Rewarewa tree are clustered together on stalks with about 50-80 flowers in each cluster. The flower is designed for pollination by birds such as kōkō (the Tūhoe name for tūī) and bellbird, so it gives a bounty of nectar which our bees find to then make into our delicious Rewarewa Honey.
The Mānuka tree was traditionally used by our ancestors for a range of medicinal purposes. Infusions of the Mānuka bark, capsules and seed were applied to burns and wounds, for pain relief, for treating mouth, throat and eye affliction, and to reduce fever.
Mānuka Honey has been shown through scientific studies across the world to have many beneficial properties, making Mānuka Honey highly valued and sought after. All our Mānuka Honey is tested by an independent internationally-accredited laboratory for methylglyoxal content that sets the rating that we apply for our Mānuka Honey. So you can trust in the quality of our product.
Use our Mānuka Honey daily as an elixir as a drink or straight from the jar. You can also use it for enhancing and sweetening your favourite dishes.
