A NZ honey from the Te Urewera Forest area is the best tasting honey in the world. The Rewa Rewa honey has won the 10th Black Jar International Honey Tasting Contest in Asheville, USA. The contest is the only international honey contest to focus solely on a blind tasting and it has hundreds of entries each year from countries across the globe. The Manawa brand Rewarewa Honey from the Ruatahuna Valley came through multiple rounds of ‘black jar’ judging to take out the finals and be named the Grand First Prize Winner. Manawa Honey’s Tāwari and Pua-ā-Tāne Wild Forest Honeys also made the finals. Chief Executive Brenda Tahi says they are gobsmacked that they’ve won the title.
