Hey Steeps!

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:

“Meeeeeeeeeh.”

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.

Bio

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
