Manuka honey is sourced from the Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium) native to New Zealand. Manuka Honey is the only honey found so far that exhibits non-peroxide activity. This is thought to be due to Methylglyoxal, a unique compound found within Manuka Honey. This makes the honey a powerful digestive aid, assisting with allergies and immune defense. It is a potent anti-bacterial agent when used topically for minor wounds and burns. It’s also heat tolerant, enabling it to reach your digestive system without losing any of its beneficial properties.

Blue Borage comes from the tall blue wildflowers of Vipers Bugloss (echium vulgare) that cover New Zealand’s mountainsides and the river valley flats of the ruggedly beautiful Southern Island. When the plant begins to bloom, it resembles a coiled viper ready to strike and this may be responsible for its European name. The honey’s color is light golden brown with an initial floral bouquet finished with a dusty rose oil characteristic. Clean tasting, mildly herbal with lemon and floral characteristics and is not invasive when used in a variety of culinary ways. It is an excellent sweetener in tea, herbal teas, coffee etc. Moisture content tends to be a little lower than most other honeys being around 15-16%. This gives the honey a chewy texture. Another characteristic to the honey is slow granulation. This enables the honey to stay liquid for longer.
In contrast to most other honeys, Honeydew Honey is not a floral honey. Instead it is the product of two insect types working to create a delicious and unique honey. Small scale insects inhabit the beech forests and produce a sticky liquid which is collected by honeybees foraging in remote native Black Beech forests in the South Island of New Zealand. Honeydew Honey contains complex sugars called Oligosaccharides which may support and strengthen good intestinal bacteria and digestive functions. Honeydew Honey also contains higher levels of antioxidants compared to other floral honeys. Honeydew is dark in color, with a similar taste to golden syrup or treacle. This runny honey does not crystallize in cooler temperatures and is delicious with plain yogurt, on toast, or in drinks.
