drank After Dinner by Pukka
24 tasting notes

So, I’ve been away a fair while – been travelling a fair bit this year both domestically and internationally. Going forward I am going to make an effort to post more often. I recently went on a trip to Washington State in the Seattle area to visit some family and friends. It was an amazing visit but I caught a nasty bug on a plane. Acute sinusitis. While at the hospital for that I somehow contracted salmonella as well which totally destroyed my intestines ( which I’m told will take several months to heal) and gave me GERD. I can’t lie down lest things come up and I get heartburn, and I can only eat very few things right now. While shopping for us, my husband ( who knows I am a licorice and fennel fan) picked this up for me. All of the ingredients are great for digestion, plus are among my favorite flavors : Roasted Chicory, Anise Seed, Sweet Fennel Seed, Licorice Root, Cardamom Pod, Orange Peel, Ginger Root. I have other teas with these ingredients and love them. But this particular combination is absolutely divine and really helps after meals for digestion and to relieve wind. If you have digestive problems or just enjoy these flavors, I recommend you give this a try. It’s earthy chicory and sweet black licorice flavor are a great combination on the tongue. The citrus and spice is hinted but just adds roundness as opposed to coming up front. One of my new favorites and I will keep this in stock from now on. Steeped in boiling water for 5-10 mins.

I’m not really good at describing myself but I’ll try :) I’m 33, married to an awesome guy and mother to a rescue beagle. I’m trained in the teaching/ youth work vein and love to volunteer. I’m a nature lover and also love to garden – growing flowers, food and herbs organically. Nativescaping. I love to be creative and am always trying something new – right now I’m crocheting, cross-stitching, cutting bottles and turning them in to candles, watercolor painting and making fairy gardens. I’ve loved tea my whole life, and have always been a leaf over bean person.

Tea Likes : I am a big fan of fruit/vegetable herbal and medicinal tisanes. I actually make alot of medicinal tisanes from my garden. Love savory teas. I heart rooibos as well, it has such a beautiful well-rounded flavor that never becomes bitter and has an inherent sweetness – nothing need be added. I am also a massive spice fan – things can never be too spicy for me (and are often not enough so). I usually drink 4-6 cups of tea per day.I love unusual and earthy flavors. I will try anything, and don’t do sugar or dairy but sometimes will add unsweetened coconut, almond or cashew milk.

I only log a tea once, even if I drink it all the time.

Since I am reviewing two different kinds of tea on here, pleasure teas and medicinal teas, I will not be using a regular scale. A medicinal tea may not taste great but may work extremely well. I will do my best to convey my opinions of the teas I try for the benefit of those who are interested.

I am a big believer in snail mail and would be up for trades / sample sharing. If you see anything in my cupboard you would like to try, shoot me a message :)
