Rewarewa Honey: The Best Tasting Honey in the World

Trophy of 10th Black Jar International Honey Contest Won By Manawa Honey NZ, Ruatahuna, Te Urewera, New ZealandOur Rewarewa Honey won Grand First Prize in the 10th Black Jar International Honey Tasting Contest held in Asheville, USA. So our Rewarewa Honey is now “The Best Tasting Honey in the World”.

In 2022, our Rewarewa Honey won GOLD at the London Honey Awards and back here in New Zealand, also won Silver at the Outstanding Food Producers Awards in 2021.

So you know this is a honey of outstanding quality.

Think of our Rewarewa Honey as “beyond Mānuka” – another exciting unique New Zealand honey. Our Rewarewa Honey is packed full of beneficial properties, with a deep colour and a rich, full flavour harking back to its origins in the pristine forests of Te Urewera.

The Rewarewa Tree

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.

Traditionally, the nectar of the Rewarewa tree was collected by our ancestors for a sweetener as it contains about 45% sugars – a true honeysuckle! The inner bark was used for bandaging over wounds to check bleeding and help healing. So there’s the clue that the honey from the Rewarewa tree will have healing properties.
