  • A bit on the pricey side.

I really like this honey.  It's raw, harvested responsibly and tastes great.  If you can spare the extra money you'll feel good about consuming this very special manuka honey.

Tahi honey is in a word:  wonderful.  I’ve been privileged to meet the woman who imports the honey from New Zealand, and I can tell you she is a true honey lover!  Her passion for honey runs deep, and her passion for the planet runs even deeper.  There’s so much to like about this honey so please keep reading our Tahi Manuka Honey review below to find out more!


I’ve done several reviews about manuka honey here. I guess that’s because I like it, but it’s also pretty popular. Most of the correspondence I get from the honey lovers out there is about manuka honey. Many of them want to know which one is best, and if manuka is everything they’ve heard it to be. There’s a lot of evidence out there to show that it may have some pretty amazing health benefits. In any case, if you are looking for a good manuka honey, then look no further.

As I mentioned before, I’ve had the privilege of personally speaking with Sarah Ayla of the Kiwi Importer Company. She discovered this wonderful honey from New Zealand, and is a Kiwi herself. She was gracious enough to offer me a sample and to tell me more about Tahi manuka honey, and I’m so glad she did!

Overall I think this is a fantastic option for anyone who wants to buy a responsibly sourced honey. The bees are well cared for (which incidentally results in almost no occurrence of CCD). It’s also carefully handled which if you’ve read anything else here you’ll know I’m a BIG advocate for unheated, unfiltered honey. Because it’s been gently processed the texture is thick and creamy with a beautiful caramel color. You can see bits of pollen which I love. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but then again you get what you pay for, and I think you get a good bit for your money with this honey.

Who Should Buy This:

If you are passionate about sourcing eco friendly honey than this is your perfect match! Tahi honey is carbon neutral, naturally harvested from honey-fed bees who forage in a wild, non-chemically treated landscape

What You Should Know:

– This is a mono-floral honey which is produced after the bees forage on the manuka tree.
– Can be used topically (on skin) or orally (eaten)
– This product is certified to UMF 10+

– Some Manuka honey has a strong medicinal taste. I found this to be very mild in comparison to others I’ve tried.

Best Honey Site Tips:

– If you’d like to know more about this wonderful honey, please visit the Kiwi Importer website and theTahi Manuka Honey website.
