Always tea o'clock (Pukka Morning Time Tea: review)

As a rule I don't believe in the new year's resolutions, but if I have to pick one it would be cutting down the amount of caffeine intake. I tend to drink lots of tea, and my kitchen looks a bit like a tea shop, there are boxes of tea everywhere (I can probably compete with the local branch of Whittard's).

You have probably seen boxes of Pukka tea in the supermarkets and health food shops. They stand out on the shelves as they have a pure clean design, in light pretty colours and patterns.
I was pleased to be offered to test a Pukka Morning Time Tea.


Pukka Morning Time Tea is a blend of rooibos, honeybush and red ginseng.

Morning Time tea is a naturally caffeine-free, deliciously sweet and full-bodied blend of uplifting herbs which can be enjoyed with or without milk to help kick start your day.

• Rooibos and honeybush enliven and refresh
• Red ginseng and roasted maca are a perfect natural pick me up
100% organically grown and fairly traded, we hope this is the best rooibos blend you will ever taste.

I had it both in the morning and in the afternoon. It is a very refreshing drink, with the honeybush enhancing the flavour of rooibos.
As you can see from the photos, the colour is intense without being too dark or too pale. The taste is slightly sweet, light but flavourful. I was a bit worried that the licorice flavour would be overwhelming but it is hardly noticeable (which is great for me, as I am not keen on licorice).
All in all, a well balanced taste.






As I was passing by the local health food shop, I popped in and bought a few different Pukka teabags to try (Pukka teas come in little individually wrapped paper sachets). A great idea for those who want to try without buying a whole new box, and a bargain at that, they were 10p each. One of the teas is called Harmonise (the description of the contents: organic rose, sweet vanilla & chamomile tea with shatavari: balancing for women - sounds like a poem).

If you reach for a pack of tea,
Let it be a Pukka tea.
