More about Pukka
How are Pukka teas sourced?
Pukka sources its ingredients through an in-house sourcing team that travels the globe to find the finest organic practitioner-grade herbs. They work in close, long-term partnerships with organic farmers and growers in over 20 different countries. Many of the herbs are certified fair by FairWild, Fairtrade, or Fair For Life standards, but even when they aren't, Pukka operates in accordance with fair trade principles. The herbs are rigorously assessed by Pukka's Quality Team before being blended into teas, lattes, and supplements. These products are tested for contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, and pyrrolizidine alkaloids to ensure safety. The testing is done in accordance with EU food safety laws in industry standard (UKAS) accredited laboratories. Each batch of herbs is only approved for use once it passes the approved test limits. The source and country of origin of the herbs vary from time to time, but organic certification provides an extra level of traceability and Pukka often visits their suppliers, becoming familiar with farms at the field level.
How do I best brew Pukka tea?
Pukka's herbal tea blends are designed to be brewed for up to 15 minutes depending on the desired flavor strength. The optimum infusion time for the blends is between 5-10 minutes, depending on the herbs contained in the blend. If using freshly boiled water, the herbs infuse fairly quickly (within 5-6 minutes) and steeping for longer will not increase the benefits of the herbs within the tea. Additionally, the flavour may be altered if infused for too long. For example, Pukka's Supreme Matcha Green tea is recommended to use freshly boiled water and infuse for 3-5 minutes. All Pukka's brewing instructions are related to one teabag per standard mug, up to approximately 250ml per teabag.
