New Zealand Honey Co. RawManuka Honey UMF 5+ is produced by bees collecting nectar from the native Manuka plant, a scrubby tree that is abundant across New Zealand and is well known for its unique properties. These properties have led RawManuka Honey to be one of the most researched honeys in the world. The small white flowers of the Manuka tree bloom during spring and summer in New Zealand and this is the time of year when the bees collect the nectar and produce the honey.
New Zealand Honey Co. RawManuka Honey UMF 5+ is a complex honey with a herbaceous flavour that has undertones of caramel, with a clean fresh finish and a slightly bitter taste. This honey has a smooth, pleasant texture; very thick, chewy and almost fudge-like consistency. The honey can range from being a dark cream in colour to a dark brown, and anything in between.
