Our Coastal Native bush is a mixture of predominantly Pohutukawa and Kanuka this year, with a touch of floral from the later summer flowering species. This simple tasty honey has plenty of native floral notes.. pale from the pohutukawa, but rich and zingy from Kanuka and other native species.. a nice smooth texture, a good basic honey for toast, tea and deserts!
New to our website is the Matakana"s Heirloom Flower Honey.
Completely different to our local honey, with russet tones and almost a tropical flavour.. we have 2 sites in the Matakana district, and they are in the vicinity of Mt Tamahunga, the mount on our label. A predominant amount of Rewarewa is visible here, so we assume this is a Rewarewa blend.. and with ginger in the river, and flowers galore at the flower shop, this is giving our honey a tropical tone..
Just quietly, its my favourite honey of the year ! Possibly because its super small batch and different ..
