After lunch tea here! I got this at the Berkeley Bowl last night which is a huge grocery store in Berkeley. They have a pretty large tea selection but I was looking for something with nettles in it (for allergies) so I picked this one up. I haven’t seen Pukka teas in any other local store. They also had tins by Harney and the Tao of Tea, among others.
Dry teabag smells very licorice-y, which I assume is due to the licorice and fennel. The overall flavor is herbaceous, with a sweet note and a very slight minty element. Due to the fennel and mint element, I believe this will be a decent digestif and I like the flavor. This actually exceeded my expectations. Licorice haters be warned, this is not the tea for you… Looking forward to trying some more organic herbal teas by Pukka.
The Three Mint Blend is interesting. You typically find peppermint or spearmint teas, or a mix of these two, but I’ve yet to find another tea that adds the field mint into the mix. The flavour of spearmint is particularly strong, but with this tea, it’s subdued enough by the other two mints to be an enjoyable tea. Perfect for a nice cold winter day.
I like this tea in the mornings or before bed with honey. Flavor, even unsweetened is sweet by itself and easy on the palate. Simple cup of calming, pick-me-up cup kind of tea.
Needs a lot of seeping time for the flavor to really kick in. Really herbal, spiced flavor and helps my tummy to calm down a notch.
Light perfume of rose and lavender with the soothing taste of chamomile. Perfect tea to unwind on a Friday afternoon at work.
I absolutely love this tea.
I brewed it with boiling water, added some milk after 3-4 minutes and then kept the bag in while I drank it. Helped me through so many mornings :-)
Big fan of this tea for after dinner. Helps with digestion and I can’t get enough of the light black licorice taste.
A tea I save for cloudy days, when I’d rather stay indoors. Bought originally because of the description (Amour!) and notes (rose and lavender — I’m a fan of floral teas), but didn’t turn out to be a favourite (I’m not too fond of the taste of chamomile, and it’s the strongest one here). Be careful not to oversteep! Otherwise, a lovely companion for a grey day and a book. A clear, soothing tea, it’s best when you can see the steam rising from your mug.
I was thinking this was an herbal tea, rather than camellia sinensis. Whoops. I hope I can sleep tonight!
Pretty tasty, I like it. I don’t know that I would buy a whole box, since I don’t generally like bag teas, but if someone offered it, I would definitely drink it.
Sipdown. I really do like this. Its quite good, full bodied and flavorful. I can get it fairy easily, so at some point I will welcome it back into my cupboard.
This is a spicy/sweet combination, very unusual for a camomile, and I like it.
All the talk of the new DAVIDsTea fall collection made me want something a little spicy before bed, but I need to sleep deeply tonight, so a herbal was in order.
Enter Love tea. Bingo.
How many teas with the word “Love” in them do I own? At least three, now that I think about it!
I’m almost through this, but its easily got in my local area, so it might very well wander back into my cupboard after its through.
I am on a mission to taste different Chais. I really enjoy the Pumpkin Chai and the Coco Chai Rooibois from David’s Tea and the Chai Spice from Stash.
I find that this one has too much cinnamon in it. Just when you smell it you can tell. Also, I hate that they added liquorice. It makes it too sweet for a Chai. I like my Chai spicy!
Where have I been??? I only just found this tea, I love the smell of lavender; very relaxing also I don’t know what is in it but it drives my cat crazy.
I find this to be quite a full bodies camomile, if that makes any sense. I find most camomiles to be a little bland, so its nice that this one has a distinct flavor to it. Its almost a little bit spicy, which I like, but still a good, soothing cup in the evening. And the different floral notes are interesting. I particularly was interested in the addition of rose, which I hadnt seen before.
I absolutely LOVE this tea! I’m not a huge fan of mint tea, but this one made me a believer! I could drink this tea every day it’s so lovely! Nice mint (obviously) flavor, but not overpowering in the least bit. I add a bit of honey to my cup, but it stands well on it’s own. Sometimes I prefer no added sweetness & it still tastes great!
I like most of Pukka’s teas. This one is a bit mild in taste for me, but I guess that’s what you get with a chamomile base. I taste chamomile and a hint of licorice. I’m afraid I don’t get the vanilla at all.
I’ve had a raging headache all day, and this is a nice relaxing tea to have before I go to bed.
sipping some now…taste delish! Now hopefully my belly stops aching
I love the nettle flavor of this tea it’s light and nutty, and my face actually started clearing up a tad after about a month of drinking it.
As a lover of all the ingredients in this herbal infusion I was stoked to happen upon this on the grocery store shelf. Tasting this tea did not disappoint — lots of licorice flavoring with an undercurrent of chamomile and marshmallow.
However, I will warn anyone who doesn’t know about the side effects of real licorice root: hypertension and edema are rather common with even moderate consumption. This tea has enough in it that after 3 nights of drinking this before bedtime I found myself with bad hypertension for about 4 hours despite no history of it.
So, if the flavors appeal to you go for it, but know what you could be getting yourself into.
