Kawakawa

Kawakawa is a traditional medicinal plant of the Māori. An infusion is made from the leaves or roots, and used for bladder problems, boils, bruises, to relieve pain or toothache, or as a general tonic. Also used to make a delicious refeshing tea and food flavouring

Manuka

Maori used Manuka leaves and bark medicinally for its ability to aid in healing and fighting infection. It was used to treat everything from rheumatism and fevers to burns and skin disorders. Later Manuka was used to make a refreshing tea and also used to make beer by Captain Cook since 1769

Ti Kouka


The root, stem and top are all edible, a good source of starch and sugar. The fibre is separated by long cooking or by breaking up before cooking. The leaves were woven into baskets, sandals, rope, rain capes and other items and were also made into tea to cure stomach ailments

The flowers and fruit are edible. Flavor wise, it is the outer white velvet-like petals that should be eaten as they taste very tropical, where the inner parts do not. The fruit however, can be eaten whole (including skin)
