drank Chamomile & Vanilla by Pukka
31 tasting notes

Initially light like chamomile tea usually is — but unfortunately I cannot taste the Vanilla, and if left to steep too long, takes on a stronger licorice flavour that wasn’t initially evident. Maybe I’m a purist? I just don’t think that chamomile and licorice bode too well. The licorice flavour takes over the delicate flavour of the chamomile.

Still, it is pleasant if you’re feeling poorly, and the packaging is beautiful! Pukka’s box designs are instantly distinguishable. :)

My advice: don’t let it steep too long and it’s a decent cup of chamomile.

I usually use 2 teabags every time for 200ml of water. Then the floral fragrant of the tea really stays after taste.

I have a hard time not buying tea when I’m in the grocery store, even if I know it’s going to sit on the shelf for months and months. I bought this one to aid digestion. There’s nothing terrible about it, but nothing great, either. Sometimes I add it to black tea when I’m mixing a chai. In essence – “meh.”

Found this hanging out in the cupboard at work and figured what the hey, as I’ve yet to import masses of work-tea to my new office.

I didn’t think much of it before adding a sachet of sugar, so I don’t think this will be in my regular rotation of daytime teas, as I’m desperately trying to shift the massive paunch I’ve somehow managed to accrue in the last year. Ugh. I’ve gone up two trouser sizes. So depressing. I can’t afford new trousers. I just keep alternating between two pairs at the office and hope nobody notices I clearly don’t own any other trousers that fit. IT IS SLIM DOWN TIME BECAUSE I REALLY DO HAVE OTHER TROUSERS, HONEST

But I digress. I think the reason I felt the need to add sugar to this is that it has a sweet note behind the predominantly chamomile flavour – that’s probably the licorice root at work. I don’t know what it is about licorice root, but the weird sweetness it imparts to some teas gives me this sort of gross cognitive dissonance that makes me need to add actual sugar to make it palatable (probably because I don’t notice the licorice-derived sweet anymore). Which is a shame, because all the other flavours in here are things I should like. Other than that, I mostly get chamomile. Oh well. At least it was free.

Found this tea about 2 months ago. Love, love, love it! Tastes and smells so nice. Cats love it too! I wish I could drink it in the day but it does make me sleepy, so it wouldn’t be the best idea! Look forward to my evenings so much more now!

Thanks to MissB for passing down a couple bags of this! TMI, but I’m hardcore PMSing right now, especially after (temporarily) going off BC so I’m extra crampy than usual. And hella ravenous. Wow. I haven’t experienced this since before I started using BC.

So this is perfect for feeling better. That sweet licorice root is so soothing, but not overly sweet like it sometimes can be. Anise is also at the top, so yay! Love that stuff. I can maybe taste the slightly sharper fennel underneath them. And luckily no coriander.

Raspberry leaf is also good for the same symptoms…tastes like—leaves—but a little mint thrown in works well.

I’ve heard that it’s suposed to work! Of course of all times, I don’t have it when I need it haha.

Mighty Aphrodite from Davids is RRL based, and quite tasty.

I was so excited to try this tea! The packaging is lovely and even though I am not a fan of teabags I still decided to get it. All I can say it…totally disappointing. The flavours end up blending together to make a soupy undistinguishable taste.

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.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 13 OZ / 375 ML

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)

Flavors: Cinnamon

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

Overboard TTB

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.
