Pukka love tea

01 Aug

Before I get started with posts about the food and treats I tried in Iceland, I thought I’d post about Pukka tea.  Pukka tea comes from Pukka  organic herbs in the United Kingdom.

Some of Pukka’s organic herb teas have won “Great Taste Awards” in competitions in London, and they have also received several industry awards and commendations.

They describe Love Tea as:

“Love tea is a unique blend of fragrant herbs with fantastic soothing properties. Drink Love tea to help you feel cherished and well nourished, night and day.

• Rose and lavender warm the heart
• Elderflower and chamomile relax and soothe
• Marigold petals are beautifully balancing”
They say that their tea ingredients are organically grown and fairly traded.

Despite a long steep time, is pretty weak.  It tastes almost entirely of chamomile as far as I’m concerned, and I couldn’t. Really pick out a lot of other flavors.  If you LIKE. Chamomile tea, this might be ok,

… But there are a lot of choices for that. Myself, on the other hand was really looking forward to a more complex drink; chamomile is ok.. But as a solo flavor it leaves me wanting. I don’t drink a lot of bagged tea anymore, but when traveling it’s a lot more convenient than bringing loose leaf and a strainer…
