Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum), a New Zealand native leaf, is one of the most prominent native plants in Māori medicine.
Known for its anti- inflammatory properties Kawakawa also assists the liver, tummy, toothache and many more ailments.

Traditionally used by Māori as treatment for several conditions, in particular the lungs.
Kumarahou (Pomaderris kumeraho) is a highly acknowledged rongoa for Māori.
We have blended this amazing native leaf with a light syrup to create the wonderful Kumarahou Lemon & Lime drink.
Leaves of the Horopito (Pseudowintera colorata) tree were traditionally used by the Māori to treat stomach pain and many other ailments.
The biologically active constituent of Horopito is known as polygodial which has been shown to exhibit significant antifungal and antibacterial activity.
Blended with rich Tasman Bay Blackcurrant & Boysenberry concentrates this drink offers amazing qualities along with its effervescent tastes.
