I love a hot , strong cup of coffee to keep me mentally awake but i limit my intake to just one a day. I like to keep my body alkaline and hence just that one cup.
However, in addition to the constant needs of my body to water my organs I do love some Rooibos/Red Bush tea. The deep smoky flavor of Rooibos which is caffeine free is predominantly my beverage of choice. I can sip it all day every day and night. It is so popular in The George household that it has replaced the humble green tea. I have not found green tea to my liking inspite of its many supernatural health benefits. As they say it is an acquired taste. Or maybe i haven’t found the right green tea.
So what made me sway my coffee and tea habits???
The answer to that question is Instagram and To Universe with love (a beautiful blog)
Instagram : Did i say instagram ?
Yeah i did. After hours and hours of drooling over pictures of tea, coffee, coffee and the likes (You see, Instagram is my second addiction) I came across a very beautiful blogger called RUHI @ruhimaach. If you have not read her blog you must be living under the rock. Well, i am exaggerating a bit 🙂 Her blog is an essential guide to all things beauty, precisely green skincare. She has some of the most amazing clicks and i love her because she always replies to her comments. Ok, so getting back to the point, when i was stalking her Instagram page, i realized that she was a tea addict.
The other blog that made my heart lilt was To Universe with love with a fabulous post of Primer on Teas. Talk about tea addiction 🙂 😀
I thought i must be missing something. I HAD TO TRY SOME FABULOUS TEA.
Among the numerous teas that she instagrammed about, one of them was PUKKA.
I was intrigued. I was lucky that my nearest supermarket was well stocked with PUKKA.
I got home one to try and THERE HAS BEEN NO LOOKING BACK. The George household is truly converted !!!!! Amen!!!!!
😀 😀 BLISS
So how did i get hooked???
Performance : A++++ (an extra + grading for being so fabulous) 🙂
I bought the Pukka Night time tea….. SOOTHING and SLEEP INDUCING to say the least.
So who is PUKKA ?
Founded : 2001
Where : Somerset (yayy for British brands 🙂 …correct me if I am wrong)
Targeted audience : weaning away from coffee, getting initiated into herbals teas and health conscious 🙂
Why is it named PUKKA : PUKKA means AUTHENTIC / GENUINE in HINDI and in the British slang means GREAT QUALITY.
Blends : so many to choose from. I already have stocked up 4-5 of these (a post coming soon)
Taste : Subtle , not over-powering, soothing
Comparison to the others : I have tried other brands and they pale in comparison to this. Pukka blends are masterfully crafted.
Affordability : A++ expensive for the amount of tea bags but there is no compromise on quality !!!!!!!
Does it make me sing : SURE DOES !!!!!! I have stocked up so many. (There will be photographic evidence in another post soon 🙂
PUKKA has made my evenings with BRIAN COX much more enjoyable. PUKKA night-time helps me drift into a slumber where i can roam among the stars with BRIAN 🙂 🙂 🙂
Many more posts to come on PUKKA and an upcoming post on my confession of love for Mr. Brian!!! :-* :-*
