What is Rewarewa Honey?
Rewarewa honey is made from the nectar collected by honey bees from rewarewa flowers. Mossop’s Rewarewa Honey is produced from New Zealand’s native honey suckle tree and has a beautiful dark amber colour and a full-bodied, caramel-like flavour.
What is the Rewarewa Tree?
The rewarewa tree (Knightiaexcelsa) is a honey suckle tree native to New Zealand. Rewarewa are commonly found in lowland and hill forests throughout the North Island of New Zealand usually below an altitude of 1000m, some rewarewa trees are found in Marlborough Sounds.
The rewarewa tree is an attractive and slender tree that can grow up to 30m tall. The rewarewa flowers closely resemble bottlebrush but are more maroon in colour. The rewarewa flowers’ sweet scent and nectar attracts many native birds (such as the distinctive Tui) as well as honey bees.
At Mossop’s we source our rewarewa honey from the lowlands and the foothills of the wider Bay of Plenty region.

What is New Zealand Manuka Honey?
New Zealand Manuka honey is produced when bees pollinate the Manuka bush (AKA the New Zealand tee tree or Leptospermum scoparium).
The Manuka tree is found throughout New Zealand and Manuka honey has been globally recognised for as one of nature’s superfoods thanks to its antibacterial properties and unique chemical composition.
One of Manuka honey’s secret ingredients is methylglyoxal (MG) which naturally occurs in high-quality NZ Manuka honey and is what makes Manuka so highly regarded. For the best Manuka honey always choose UMF® labelled Manuka honey to ensure you are getting the best possible product.
