Kamahi is a common native tree with stunning white bottle-brush flowers grown on the rugged west coast of the Southern Alps in New Zealand.
Kamahi honey is a very special type of premium quality honey only produced in New Zealand. Most of Kamahi honey comes from the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island where the native Kamahi tree grows abundantly in the forest canopy. Honeybees can be found gathering the nectar from the spike of small, creamy white flowers in spring.
Kamahi Honey is one of nature’s super-foods. It contains high amounts of minerals and trace elements for maximum health benefits. A complex supply of raw, unprocessed nutrients. It is a single source of energy and immune support properties for health and wellness.
We recommend to use it to sweeten the tea or for toast on breakfast together with fresh fruit and creamy cheeses such as Brie and Camembert. For bakers who wish to have a very identifiable honey flavor in their recipes, Kamahi honey is often the best choice of ingredients to achieve that effect. Kamahi Honey is also an ideal sweetener for spicy dishes, such as Thai food.
