Manuka honey is famous for its quality. It comes from the nectar of the manuka tree, which grows in New Zealand and Australia. The two countries have battled over the word "manuka". New Zealand said only its beekeepers could use the word "manuka". However, a court said Australian beekeepers could also use it.
The word "manuka" is from the Maori language, so New Zealand said no other country could use it for honey. New Zealand's beekeepers will continue to fight to protect their word. In Australia, the manuka tree is called the "tea tree". Australia's beekeepers are happy that they can use the word "manuka".
