DESCRIPTION

Kanuka was used originally by the Maori people of New Zealand for a variety of applications both Medicinally and culturally.  Both Kanuka and Manuka are colloquially referred to as 'Tea tree' though should not be confused either with each other or with Australian Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia).
 
As with its close relative Manuka the key aspect of Kanuka is its anti-microbial properties.
