What Does Mānuka Honey Taste Like?

You may have seen the decadent imagery of golden Mānuka honey coming out of a jar, but just how good is it really? More often than not, when buyers purchase a jar of pure monofloral Mānuka honey, they’re usually back for more. It doesn’t matter if you're spreading the Mānuka honey on toast, mixing it in with your tea or just eating it by the spoonful, this 100% pure New Zealand natural gold will deliver an unbeatable taste. 

Sit back and relax as we go through the several different sensations that come with Mānuka honey. This article will delve into the taste, texture, colour and aroma of uniquely native honey that has earned fans worldwide. 

What Is The Taste of Mānuka Honey? 

A genuinely unbeatable taste, fans of Mānuka honey would argue that the flavour is the key that draws them back every time. Known for a unique medium sweetness, this masterfully crafted honey arrives at the tongue, delivering nutty notes and a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. While more conventional honey, like clover, is far sweeter, Mānuka honey delivers a pleasant treat that doesn’t overwhelm. 

If you prefer a more subtle taste, add a small teaspoon of honey to your tea or coffee. Mānuka honey does not have to be ingested via teaspoon alone - it’s also a versatile ingredient that can be applied to breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. 

What Is The Texture of Mānuka Honey?

You may think that flavour is the only thing that matters with food. This isn’t always the case; some foods can taste pleasant but have a texture that may make you uncomfortable - like oysters. Fear not; Mānuka honey delivers with both flavour and texture. The decadent flavour of Mānuka honey comes as a viscous, gel-like substance that feels like velvet on the tongue. 

Not only does that Mānuka honey effortlessly spread across the tastebuds, but it also goes down just as well. You may have heard that honey can help soothe sore throats; Mānuka honey is no different. Soothing the throat is just one of the fantastic benefits of enjoying some of New Zealand’s finest. 

What Is The Colour of Mānuka Honey? 

The colour of Mānuka honey is very interesting as it does depend on a few factors. Firstly, compared to conventional honey, Mānuka honey is noted for its amber colour compared to the typical transparent gold-like colour of clover. Notable for its unique opacity, monofloral and multifloral Mānuka honey is far less transparent than even some other native honey like Acacia honey. 

Additionally, the UMF™ level may also see changes in colour depending on how the level goes. For example, anentry-level UMF™ 5+ Mānuka Honey will be lighter than aUMF™ 28+ Mānuka Honey. This will likely be because of the higher concentration of Mānuka nectar, but you will find the amber colour becomes richer and darker with increased UMF™ grades. 

What Is The Aroma of Mānuka Honey?  

It’s not uncommon for exceedingly sweet items to give off a sickly aroma that may be off-putting. Nevertheless, no such thing occurs thanks to the earthy nature of pure monofloral Mānuka honey. Instead, catching a waft of Mānuka honey will treat your nose to a very natural smell that is both loamy and natural. 

Expect a mouth-watering experience when you smell Mānuka honey from the jar. As a person who may have tasted Mānuka honey before, your tastebuds will be well aware of what to expect from this dreamy and decadent treat.
