Taihoa Tides Frantoio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a variety of Italian origin which is mellower than the Koroneiki yet still has great depth of flavour. It is velvety smooth and has a slightly fruity flavour which has proven very popular in New Zealand. It is an extremely high quality olive oil which speaks for itself and is great for making pesto’s, dipping breads and finishing dishes. Taihoa Tides is another incredibly passionate producer of olive oil whose love of what they do and pride in their work really shows in their product. Located right on the waterfront in beautiful Parua Bay, close to Whangarei they set up their olive grove in 2005. Everything is grown spray free and organic, with the olives pressed on site within moments of them coming off the trees.
