Harvested from the low tide zone, 2 to 4 metres, the Tua Tua has a smooth clean shell and a full meat at nearly 33% meat to shell. The smooth low profile shell is cream to light moss in colour. It has a distinctive mild, sweet ‘ocean spray’ flavour and a rich, creamy texture. Well suited to both raw and cooked preparations, the Tua Tua is especially suited to full flavoured preparations. Highly regarded by the local Maori people as a culinary delight, it is superb eating.
The Tua Tua exhibits a delicate, sweet aroma of fresh kelp and toasted nori. The flavour of the raw clam is lightly oceanic with clean citrus notes. Cooked, the clam has a range of savoury characteristics, reminiscent of lightly smoked fish and Japanese soy.
