Tea is the world’s second-most- consumed drink – after water – and there are more blends and more styles of drinking to explore than ever before. The key to a great cup of tea (or mug – you won’t find any receptacle-ism here) could be water quality, it could be brewing temperature, and it’s certainly about the ingredients contained in those little bags of flavour.
Pukka Herbs prides itself on not using any synthetic flavourings in their range of 40 teas, only sustainably sourced, organically grown and fairly traded tea, herbs and fruit, which is of real importance to Sebastian Pole, Pukka’s master herbsmith and co-founder. For Sebastian, creating a Pukka blend is about capturing the vibrancy of the tea, herbs or fruit – an appeal that is reflected not just in the taste, but in its aroma, look and feel, too. Each of Pukka’s organic teas comes jam-packed with nature’s finest ingredients that smell mesmerising when you open the beautiful packaging and translate into taste with delicious depth. Wellbeing is high on the agenda, too, with teas such as Detox and Night Time blended to give specific physical benefits.
Green teas – particularly matcha blends – are increasingly popular. Reflecting this, new additions to the Pukka range include matcha greens blended with ginseng or mint. New Turmeric Gold is a blend of whole-leaf green tea with queen of protective spices turmeric, plus cardamom and lemon. Find your favourites blends online at pukkaherbs.com.
