Manuka Honey

Mānuka honey is a monofloral honey produced from the nectar of the mānuka tree, Leptospermum, that originated as a cultivar in New Zealand. The mānuka tree is also indigenous to some parts of coastal Australia, but is today produced globally. Used as a sugar substitute, it has a strong, earthy aroma and flavour. There is little clinical evidence for its use as a topical medication. The word mānuka is the Māori name of the tree; however, as with many Māori words, the older spelling manuka remains relatively common in English.
