I am not the biggest Pukka-fan at the moment… Maybe I lost the gift of tasting.
Why? Because ALL their (Pukkas) tea taste like bitter liqourice or hibiscus. I loved this tea half a year ago, but now It’s like:
Let me explain. The tea smell like herbs, with a fresh and “bitter” note. When the bag is steeped the bag leeks out a red color, that slowly colors the tea red brown. Taking a sip reveal a sweet bitter tea with a spicy end. Is this minty? I don’t know. Or rather – I can’t taste the “mint.” It taste more liqouricelike than minty if you ask me.
Is there something wrong with me? Did a scorching warm tea a month ago burn of some of my tongue? It’s a mystery.
… But I’ll give it a good rate. In the beginning, this was one of my faves from this company. I think the first impression is the one that count when it some to tea. Everyone changes slowly, but the taste of tea dosn’t.
