This giveaway has now closed – congratulations to Joanna! Please check your inbox for more details.

I am super excited to present this giveaway! I have been a huge fan of Pukka teas for a number of years now. If you are a tea drinker and haven’t tasted Pukka teas, you really should! If you are not a tea drinker then start with Pukka teas and you will see what all the fuss is about with tea drinking.

Pukka teas are made from the highest quality organic herbs and the blends created are done so with great intentional and thought:

Once collected and dried, the herbs are then analysed in the Pukka lab to ensure they meet stringent quality standards before being expertly blended using the wisdom of India’s ancient health system, Ayurveda by our master herbsmith Sebastian Pole. This means that every Pukka herbal blend is created with its associated health benefits in mind. {source}

And I can attest to the power of these teas. I always have some of their delicious Three Ginger Tea at home and use it if I have an upset stomach as I find it really helps settle it down.

The Pukka detox tea is my go to when I feel like I need a bit of a reset especially if I have been eating rich foods or have had a few drinks on the weekend. It is a lovely blend of organic aniseed, fennel and cardamom.

My personal favourite though, is Pukka’s Peppermint and Licorice Tea. I think nearly every person I have served this tea to at my house has then gone on to buy themselves a box. Which is funny because I often have to convince them to try it in the first place, as many are wary of the licorice addition. It is truly delicious and I love to have a cup of this tea after dinner. It is calming and because of the sweetness of the licorice it also heads of any sweet cravings I might have.

The Pukka website is such a wealth of information. Not only can you find out the key ingredients of each tea, but there is further information to help you work out what tea what might work best for you plus recipes and health tips. This is some of the information they have about my favourite Peppermint and Licorice:

Sweetness is just one of the six essential tastes that our Herbsmith Sebastian considers when creating our blends, carefully balancing the therapeutic effect of our teas with the best taste experience. We often add Fennel or Licorice to our teas to sweeten them. Licorice, for example, is a magical plant that not only has 50 times the natural sweetness of refined sugar but it is also an incredible herb. It is calming and nourishing, and its silky nature helps soothe your whole system. It also acts as a good harmoniser of the other herbs in the blend, bringing out their best qualities so you get the most balanced cup of tea.

I always take a collection of my favourite Pukka teas when I travel!
