Auckland Manuka Honey Bee Tours
MANUKA HONEY – Why is it so special?
Manuka honey comes from the Manuka tree; (Leptospermum scoparium, aka Tea tree).
NOTE: The NZ Tea tree is not to be confused with the Australian Ti tree which is derived from the Australian native plant Melaleuca alternifolia (aka: Narrow-leaved paperbark) It is completely different to NZ Tea tree (aka: Tea tree). As you can see, these trees are quite different. (However, both the Australian plant and the New Zealand plant have medicinal properties, but it is the NZ Manuka tree where the special honey comes from).
