Origin: New Zealand
Southern Rata is one of the several species of Rata found in New Zealand but is the one that most regularly produces a honey crop, although even this honey is sometimes in very short supply.
Anyone who has seen the Rata flowering in January in the Otira Gorge west of Christchurch cannot forget the sight of this brilliant red carpet covering the mountains. This area produces the purest Rata honey, very white in color with a subtle, distinctive flavor, mild and rich - but not sweet, considered by many to be the best of New Zealand Honey.
Not overly sweet this honey pairs well with white mold cheese such as camembert and brie.
