Pukka Peppermint and Licorice tea

Teapigs aren't the only ones now selling peppermint and licorice flavoured tea.  Pukka have jumped onto the bandwagon and created one of their own too.

 So I thought I'd give it a go.

The bags are the traditional square shape, rather than the pyramids that Teapigs use.  And that may be why this tea just doesn't taste as good.  The smell and flavour are weaker, less sweet and generally not quite as good as the Teapigs one.  However, when it comes to price, the Teapigs one clocks in at over twice the cost per cup of tea (if you buy a 15 bag pack for Teapigs vs. a 20 bag pack of Pukka).  So... if you like your herbal infusions gentle and subtle, go for Pukka and you'll get good value for money.  But if you want a big, punchy flavour (like I do), then you really want to be paying the extra for Teapigs.


  1. Yeah this is usually my problem with most of Pukka's stuff. It's all very nice but in an effort to get anything detectable as flavour I have to just leave the tea bag in the whole time.

  2. I love the Teapigs version precisely because it's such a strong flavour. I won't be changing.
