Pukka Tea Peppermint & Licorice - Review

A little while ago I was contacted by Pukka Herbs to see if I would like to try one of their Pukka teas. Being a bit of a fan of the old herbal teas I said yes. They asked me what flavour I would like and I said surprise me. I like most things so I didn’t think much of it until the package arrived and out came this flavour…

Peppermint & Licorice

Pukka Tea Review

You should know at this point that I hate licorice with a passion but I never even considered that they might have it as a flavour for tea. In the spirit of the review, I knew I had to give it a go and boy am I glad I did! It is hands down the best tea I have ever tasted.

When you take your first sip you are left with this syrupy sweet taste in your mouth with a soft hint of peppermint. It definitely doesn’t taste how you would imagine it too.

‘Licorice – but not the kids sweets type of licorice that many people think of. It’s one of Nature’s sweetest and most nourishing herbs. Combined with the coolness of Peppermint it creates a sweet taste explosion. So forget everything you think you know about licorice and dive into a cup of this tea – revelations await you’

Main Ingredients & Health Benefits

Licorice root in teaLicorice Root is mainly used as a sweetener in beverages and some foods, however, it does also possess some health benefits. The Egyptians used licorice root as a ‘cure-all’ mixture. It has been known to soothe stomachs, reduce stress and protect your skin & teeth.

Peppermint teaPeppermint is cooling and refreshing, hence why it is used in toothpaste. It is a hybrid between spearmint and watermint. Peppermint is great for soothing your stomach after a heavy meal and helps to cleanse your body.

It has the longest history of human cultivation; being grown in ancient Egypt,Β Greece and Rome.

It now takes pride of place on my tea shelf in the kitchen.

From a design point of view, I really love Pukka’s packaging…

Normally I would steer well clear of fancy packaging because that usually entails high prices for the product but the Pukka Teas are very reasonable.

I now enjoy a cup after every meal and I’ll definitely be looking out for Pukka Teas on my next food shop.
