This gift-pack combines our Raw Kānuka 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; Kānuka for its properties.
Our Kānuka Honey was in the top 10 as a Category winner in the contest for the World’s Best Tasting Honey (11th Black Jar International Honey Tasting Contest) held in Asheville, USA in 2022.
Kānuka Honey also contains high levels of an anti-ageing compound call arabinogalactans (AGP) which gives it powerful anti-inflammatory properties. and has been found to be effective treatment for skin conditions such as rosacea, cold sores, acne and eczema.
Kānuka Honey gives a silky depth of flavour to whatever it accompanies. Enjoy by the spoonful, on your toast, in your smoothie or over your muesli. Just wherever you want rich sweetening, an indulgent treat, with a punch.
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.
