Kia ora Brenda  Honey has arrived – perfect on a chilly day. Beautiful.  I love the different flavours. My Dad kept bees – my Mum said she could tell what season the honey came from because of the flavour. I thought she was teasing us, but realise now how much different flowers affect the taste. Thanks…

Radhika Dewan, India

Hi Brenda! After a long wait of 3 weeks, we finally received the parcel! All 3 varieties of honey taste superb. They are so distinct from each other. I was especially waiting for the Manuka honey, as its medicinal properties work like a charm on minor throat sore problems for my entire family!  Even the…

CONGRATULATIONS to you and the team at Manawa Honey.  It is a truly deserved win.  You lovely people have worked so hard to produce the best tasting honeys in the world. 😊 A little story: My 7 year-old  grand-daughter was up for vacation with her Mum and Dad. She had always been a bit indifferent…

I got to try Manawa’s manuka honey in Canada thanks to my kiwi husband. It is the most delicious honey I have ever tasted! It has such a delicate and floral taste. The creamy texture is very enjoyable. We sent some to my family and they absolutely loved it too. I contacted the company through the…

David Purdue, Queensland, Australia

Thank you so much for the honey. It truly is the nectar of the gods. I love it; the wahine absolutely loves it. My tamariki are scabbing it from me, but I don’t mind giving them a taste of heaven…. After tasting that honey and being a honey lover I can honestly say never have…

I believe we will occasionally be getting more of the honey in the future. It is very hard to find legitimate Manuka honey here, and having bought yours in New Zealand I trust you and your company. Thank you very much!

Amy Proctor, Pennsylvania, USA

I have a spoonful of your honey every morning to start my day.  The studies of the benefits of Manuka Honey are pretty impressive, so I’m giving it to my whole family as well. It just makes sense.  So I’ll be ordering from you regularly!

John McLean, Gisborne, NZ

I must say that my wife Shona and I really enjoy the Pua-a-Tane honey we recently purchased.  It is a treat of a honey which I prefer over all others…The Pua-a-Tane is really great.  I wish you every success with marketing it.

Gary Teneti, Auckland

I have been buying honeys of Te Urewera for the last 2 years and I have found that it has more of a natural taste then other store brought honeys. It has a sweet and floral flavour that other honeys I have purchased do not. I also appreciate that these honeys are produced in a…

Honey Tuhua, Ruatahuna

The honeys from Te Urewera have a natural sweetness that is better tasting than store bought honey. I have been buying this honey for the past 2 years and have no desire to revert back to purchasing store-bought honey. I like the natural product that comes straight from the hive to my table. I have…

Hi Brenda The honey arrived yesterday, many thanks for your help with the order. It is the best smelling and tasting honey we have bought in the last 10 years since we retired and sold our BoP beekeeping business!! I hope the coming season goes well for you and your Bees! All the best.

Maakarita Paku

It’s really cool seeing Tūhoe honey products on the shelves in our local supermarket.  The kids know the brand and love the honey.  I’m afraid it doesn’t sit in the cupboards for that long! Slathered on everything!

Jimmy Boswell Chef – South Waikato

For the past few years I have had the pleasure to use the wonderful honey from Manawa Honey in my recipes as well as professional and home cooking. I was very much attracted to their “Ethos” and commitment to bees in nature and bringing true New Zealand Native Honey to be available now around the…
