The packaging for this tea is absolute eye candy. However, the tea itself isn’t my favourite. I’m not too fond of the taste of chamomile, and it’s the strongest one here. Actually, I find that most of Pukka teas have strong notes of chamomile, no matter the other ingredients. I do taste some liquorice root but the chamomile definitely dominates. After having tried many types of Pukka tea, I must admit I’m not a fan. In my opinion it’s quite low quality tea that doesn’t let flavours come through very well.

There are too many flavours in this tisane which can be detected in the aroma which is slightly off-putting. Flavour does not have a focus- it is mostly bland, savoury-tasting. I can pick out the orange note as well as the licorice.

drank Three Ginger by Pukka

I’m just getting into sampling herbal teas. I’m not typically a fan of ginger, but a friend had bought this and I tried it. Very pleasant aroma, very spicy but as an aftertaste and I wasn’t sure if it was “too bitey” for me, but the ginger harshness kind of mellows as you drink it. Thought I picked up some lemon flavor too. I would drink this again.

I was expecting a stronger taste of cinnamon with a tea that calls itself “Three cinnamon”. It’s a pleasant, airy tea, but I feel as though it’s lacking. Nice for one tea bag, but I’m glad I don’t have a box of this. I am, however, happy that it’s not a “hot” cinnamon.

drank Original chai by Pukka

Might just be me at this hour, but it’s got a bit of a sourish aftertaste. Not much of a spicy taste either—it’s definitely going more for sweet. I don’t consider it particularly outstanding as far as chai goes, but it’s drinkable.

I was really excited to try this tisane, and I had had my eye on it for a while. Finally I decided to take the plunge and make the purchase…….and man was I disappointed. I love chamomile, lavender, elderflower and rose….and so I loved the idea of this tea. But it was so weak. It tasted like nothing. Maybe I got a bad box or something, but I ended up using 2 teabags in 10oz of boiling water and never took them out, and the taste was very very faint. Quite disappointing. I will be returning this tisane.

Another bonus from teapartyfortwo
Not sure what I expected from this tea, but I should have expected exactly what I got – cinnamon. I guess I expected something like a chai but it isn’t spicy, it’s like a sweet cinnamon water. I’m not explaining it very well but I really did like it! I overstepped this one by like 15 minutes – I was applying for an internship this summer and got caught up it in but it was still really nice! added some milk like I do to my chais and a tsp of sugar and it tasted like a non sickly sweet cinnamon bun! A pleasant surprise!
Edit: re steeped to see if it’d be any good and it’s just as flavourful! I actually prefer this cup because it’s actually hot, having not forgotten it :P
Edit Edit: If anyone has this tea and doesnt like it, I totally accept donations, hahaha – it is impossible to find where I live and costs a FORTUNE to ship!
(For anyone wondering? Didn’t get the internship… sadness)

I never thought about trying this with milk, going to try that tomorrow!

Backlogging from last night.

I don’t drink a lot of floral herbals, but I need to reconsider because this was nice and a pleasant way to wind down at the end of the day. I could pick out the elder-flower, lavender, chamomile, and rose but I enjoyed the tea more when I quit thinking about it and let the flavors blend together. The licorice root gave small notes of sweetness, but thankfully it didn’t dominate the tea. All in all a nice little cup.

I left this to steep at least an hour, in the hopes it would make me feel better. Oh gosh, this is a great ginger tea. It’s very spicy, with several layers to the heat and flavors. Mind you, you’d have to love turmeric to love this as well – it’s almost more a turmeric tea than a ginger one at this point. Regardless, I love it – I think my new favorite ginger tea.

This is a mild, floral tea that I would probably enjoy if not for the Licorice. I’m beginning to get the idea that Licorice in any amount just ruins a blend for me. I’ll have to start checking for it and making a point to avoid it in the future.

Flavors: Flowers, Licorice, Sweet

I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of tulsi – I’m drinking this because I have only 1 bag, so it qualifies as a sipdown.

As tulsi teas go, it’s not bad – the flavour is smoother than others I’ve tried. And I really do appreciate having caffeine-free options in my cupboard. But, easy sipdowns are easy sipdowns!

Thanks to Jude for sending me this in a swap.

As the color, dull
So the taste uninspiring
Why do I lic’rice?

Why do I keep brewing the random teas I’ve been given without first looking at their ingredients? xP Well, here I am with another licorice tea. At least no one can say that I never try them. Here goes…
The dry bag smells yummy, a bit of spice (ginger?) and sweet (marshmellow root? Not too licorice-y…).The liquor is a vaguely cloudy dull goldenrod.
With my first sip….I am hit with a storm of flavors…and a sickly sweet remains in my mouth. Nope, can’t stand it. The initial flavor is interesting, but not worth the licorice-sweet aftertaste.

Even though I hate licorice flavour in tea, the beautiful cinnamon flavour in this tea saves it. Such a nice, comforting tea to have in the evening. I’m increasing my rating ever so slightly.

A straight-forward, comforting, smooth cinnamon tea made from three different types of cinnamon bark. This tastes like a high quality tea with high quality ingredients. The cinnamon flavour is pure tasting and thankfully the licorice flavour does not overpower the cinnamon (not a licorice fan in tea.) This cinnamon tea is really well done and if you like cinnamon, I would recommend trying it.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice
