Tea Tree

He kaha te tupu o te mānuka puta noa i Aotearoa mai i ngā pararahi ki ngā pānakitanga o raro i ngā maunga. I tino pai a Kāpene Kuki ki ngā rau hei mahi tī, nā te kawa o te hā, koia i huatia ai he rakau-tī.

Panipania ai hoki ki te kiri hei whakarokiroki. Whakamahia ai anō mō ngā wera. Pania ai ngā pungarehu o tōna hiako hei whakaora mate kiri. Ina kohuatia ngā rau, hongihongia te mamaoa hei ārai maremare. Kōhuatia ai te hiako o roto, ka oreorea ki roto o te māngai hei whakareka.
