Kāpiti Te Tihi Premium Aged Cheddar has been aged up to three years, giving it a sharp, zesty bite and firm, crumbly body. Expect some lactate crystallisation that gives this cheese a sharp crunch. Te Tihi, meaning peak, point or summit in te reo Māori, is befitting of our sharpest cheddar in the range and links to the iconic shape of this cheese.
It won Gold as well at the 2021 and 2020 NZ Cheese Awards for best retail cheddar.
Te Tihi Premium Aged Cheddar + Fruit Cake
Sweet and savoury are long time friends, but when you take innocently sweet Artisan Celebration cakes and match with the sharp, bolshie tang of Kapiti Te Tihi you get devilishly different flavour combinations that will never want to be apart.
Serve at room temperature to allow the cheese’s full flavour, aroma and texture to bloom. Remove the cheese from the fridge, place on the platter or board, then cover with a clean damp cloth an hour before serving.
Best Stored at 4 °
After it’s been opened, re-wrap in cling film or aluminium foil and then place in an airtight container to prevent cross-contamination and drying out.
