Creamy white in colour, delicate but interesting, Northern Rata is a mellow and buttery honey with a smooth, silky finish. Not overly sweet and with hints of earthy mushroom notes.

Northern Rata honey pairs well with white mould cheese such as camembert and brie or fuller flavoured washed rind cheese. Its diverse flavour profile makes it a great all round honey suitable for a variety of culinary purposes.

Rata treeThe Rata tree is one of New Zealand's best known native trees. Flowering of the Rata is very sporadic, some years there is almost no flower at all while other years the trees can be covered in a blaze of red flowers.

Honeybees prefer to collect nectar from the Northern Rata flower more than any other nectar available to them.
