Rātā Honey

(11 customer reviews)

From $11.95

Honey Pot price: from $10.76

Rātā Honey is a sweet, smooth honey with a light, buttery taste.

This mellow honey is a hidden treasure, just like the brilliant red blossoms of the Rātā tree.

A reminder of summer all year round. You might want to hide this one for yourself — it is stunning on toast, with or without lashings of butter.

We are currently sold out of Rātā Honey jars. 



Rātā honey has a smooth, buttery taste that works beautifully with goat’s cheese and chicken dishes.


This luscious honey has a pale, flaxen colour, matched by a smooth texture. Rātā honey will crystalise over time as it is raw, unpasteurised and unwhipped, just like nature intended.


A beautifully scented honey, with light floral notes.


Our Rātā honey is sourced from coastal locations on the rugged west coast of the South Island.

    Nice to know it’s easy to get a good quality and great tasting honey so easily. Great customer service.

  3. Clemence L.

    Sweet and soft… with a delicate taste… this is one of my favorite honeys.

  4. Stephanie L.

    This is a great tasting honey with a very mellow flavour – a good “starter” honey for the person who may be uncertain about stronger flavours. It’s lovely on Vogels toast and has a good, mild perfume.

  5. Sue T.

    This is the best honey ever. Light sweet mellow taste. Easily spreadable. Great in drinks. Delicious in crumpets and toast and drizzled over porridge. Great to have it in a glass jar too an added bonus. A fantastic NZ product from this great company.

  6. Janice M.

    Beautiful colour and great taste. A kiwi classic perfect for using any way you want to. Love it.

  7. Andrew C.

    We first discovered the unique flavour of Mountain Valley Honey Rata many years ago – great on toast or freshly baked buns. MVH Rata is an absolute must for honey connoisseurs.

  8. Anthony W.

    Just received this honey – so awesome service guys. The taste is fantastic and should be a great addition on the breakfast table or snack plate as well.

  9. Sarah B.

    Rata honey can be quite hard to come across, I’ve purchased this extensively as gifts, and enjoy it myself.

  10. Sandra G.

    We love Rata honey in tea and also for baking. Smooth and delicate flavour. Friendly and quality customer service.

    My 2kg jar of honey came today. I was so delighted to see it in its packaging. Love the taste and aroma. Will definitely order again to send as gifts overseas. So great to have found the website.
