Pukka Lemon, Ginger & Manuka Honey In Pukka’s words: ‘A moment of bliss – a hug of lemon, ginger & honey to keep your spirits warm. Let your heart burst into song’. Almost singing, haha… 🙂 And by the way Manuka honey has crossed my ways a thousand times, but what is so special about it? What is Manuka Honey Manuka honey, produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush, is one of the most unique and...

Pukka Blackcurrant Beauty Pukka says: ‘A velvet robe of dark fruits mixed with hibiscus & rosehip. Deliciousness knows no deeper colour this Christmas’. Love this colour, and in general I love the tea bag designs from Pukka. They are so colourful and nice looking at. Today it’s the Lucia day, but it is also the time for the ’12 Holy Nights’. The 12 Holy Nights are the 12 nights before Christmas Eve and the 12 nights after. According to ancient...

Pukka Clean Matcha Green With Pukka’s words: ‘A tea to spring clean your spirit with lemon & finest matcha. Dandelion & fennel to help your sparkle come alive’. Green teas with matcha I am normally drinking with pleasure. I think matcha is enhancing the good taste. Did you know that matcha is loaded with antioxidants? When you drink matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf. Matcha powdered green tea has 137 times...

Pukka Wild Apple & Cinnamon Ah, one of my husband’s favourites today ♥ With Pukka’s words: ‘A Christmas cup of sweetly spiced apples. With cinnamon, ginger, orange peel & clove to warm your soul’. Today I indeed need some warming spices, because in Denmark we only have two plus degrees. The cold weather makes today’s tea even more fantastic. Did you know that tea is also adding years to your life? New research finds that daily tea habits could add...

Pukka Mint Matcha Green Pukka says hello: ‘As invigorating as a mountain walk, let pure organic peppermint refresh you. Whole leaf greens lift you into the freshness of the day.’ Well, we will see about that. As mentioned in previous post I am not into mint in tea. So maybe it really isn’t my cup of tea 😉 By the way do you know where this phrase origins from? The phrase ‘not my cup of tea’ comes from the UK...

Pukka Three Cinnamon Cinnamon, how nice and in Pukka’s words: ‘Forget the cold and bask in the sweet heat of cinnamon’s golden suntrap. An embrace worthy of a moment under the mistletoe.’ I think this tea might be good to ‘hygge’ with. The Danish word ‘hygge’ is a word not common in other languages. When I use google translate to translate ‘hygge’, the words that pop up are: fun and coziness. From British people I know that they also want...

Pukka Christmas Calendar day 7 A new day threatens, thank God I have Pukka 😉 In Pukka’s words: ‘Excitement is here for all to savour. The rush of sweet licorice cooled by the minty brilliance of peppermint.’ A Danish hairdresser is told to be the one, who invented this tea, but I am not sure that’s correct. Anyway I have tasted this blend before, and it is not meant for me disliking both peppermint and licorice root. Tasting Pukka peppermint...

Pukka Christmas Calendar day 5 Get ready to fly with Pukka: ‘Feel your cares fly away on zesty wings of lemongrass & ginger. Goodbye clouds, hello twinkling starts in the sky’. Makes me thinking about my first cup of tea made of only lemongrass. Served on Koh Samui, Thailand. I have never had this kind of tea before, but it was truly awesome. The same goes for ginger tea, made of only ginger. You should try it. Enjoy with honey...

Pukka Christmas Calendar day 4 Chamomile tea, not my favourite tea but this blend is actually okay. I am using it as a goodnight tea. Pukka writes about this tea: ‘In amongst the chaos and clutter find your inner pool of calm. Sweet vanilla & honey to cherish and soothe your soul’.

Store your tea properly

But first find some nice tea caddies Keep it in an airtight, dark, dry place away from strong-smelling foods. If you buy a big amount of tea, you can split it up into what you will be using and leave the rest of it in the package. Wrap it up in a plastic bag without air and seal it with a tight knot. Then place the airtight packaged tea somewhere dark and cool. Shelf life and taste Tea is one...
