Monofloral honeys are a premium product in the market due to their distinct taste, fragrance and flavour as they are predominantly from one single nectar source. The taste spectrum of monofloral honeys range from bitter to sweet and texture from clear to creamy. Similar to wine, the colour, taste and texture can differ slightly from year to year even from the same location and beekeeper.

Manuka is found throughout New Zealand and often forms extensive areas of bush. The leaves are dotted with oil glands, and when bruised give off a gingery peppery smell. The flowers vary from brilliant white through to rose-pink.
The Maori people used Manuka as a medicinal plant, from treating fevers and colds to sedatives and early European settlers called it the "tea tree".
This is a strong flavoured honey but with a fresh clean bite.
