Nourish’s Pukka Tea Picks for Winter Wellness

Posted: Thu, 24 November 2016, 10:31

When the colder weather sets in we start to notice an exponential increase in the amount of sniffles and muffled coughs going around.

During this snotty season, our immune systems are much more likely to be susceptible to bugs that can keep us feeling down, so here is a list of our Top Pukka Tea Picks for Winter Wellness to keep your immune system super-charged, and your energy levels tip top this upcoming winter!


Pukka Turmeric Gold Tea

Pukka Turmeric Gold tea is an organic golden blend of premium Indian turmeric, lemon fruit and whole leaf green tea; and it packs quite the punch when talking health benefits.

Turmeric is a true herbal superhero, and a definite herb to have at hand this upcoming winter.
In traditional Indian herbal medicine (known as Ayurveda), turmeric has been used to help maintain healthy blood, skin, circulation and as a nourishment to feed the whole body.

Thanks to the yellow pigments (collectively known as curcuminoid) and the root which is crammed with essential oils known as tumerones, these two components both work together within the body as powerful antioxidants helping to attack those offensive free radicals which can damage and age our bodies.

Not only that, but they also stimulate a healthy inflammation response, enhance circulation in the body, protect the brain, rejuvenate the liver and even target pain.
Add the benefits of green tea on top of that and you’re golden (ah, see the pun there..?!)

100% organically grown and ethically sourced ingredients: Turmeric root (40%), Suoi Gang green tea (20%), licorice root, cardamom pod, lemon Vana tulsi leaf, lemon essential oil flavour (6%), lemon whole (6%).

Pukka Clean Matcha Green Tea

This matcha green tea combines organic whole leaf green tea with digestive aiding sweet fennel and dandelion; the zing of whole lemons and the antioxidant powers of emerald green matcha powder.

Traditionally, matcha comes in a powdered form that you need to whisk to make a matcha paste before you pour in hot water, but thankfully, Pukka Tea has made the process much easier with their handy tea sachets so you are able to enjoy the benefits of matcha anytime, anywhere!

Recent research has shown that one cup of matcha has 100 times the antioxidants compared to regular green tea and that it also contains various compounds that are associated with improving health, reducing stress and increasing alertness. Read more about the benefits of matcha here.

This tea makes a great alternative to your morning coffee or as an afternoon slump pick-me-up by offering you a natural energy boost with the addition of the amino acid L-Theanine. This helps to enhance the production of alpha waves in the brain, which induces a more relaxed, calm and focused state of mind.

And don’t forget the immune system benefits.
The catechins found in green tea may inhibit the growth of bacteria and some viruses and help lower the risk of some infections.

Green tea also contains plentiful amounts of antioxidants, and even a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals, all of which contribute to a healthy, strong immune system. So drink up!

100% organically grown and ethically sourced ingredients: Sencha green tea (40%), sweet fennel seed (10%), dandelion root (10%), licorice root, nettle leaf, lemon essential oil flavour (6%), turmeric root, lemon whole (4%), lemon myrtle leaf, Matcha powder (Jejo do Garucha) (2%).

Pukka Blackcurrant Beauty Tea

Full of organic goodness and packed with flavour, Blackcurrant Beautyuses the highest quality herbs, combining the deep rich flavours of organic blackcurrant with sweet and earthy beetroot, hibiscus flowers, rosehips and the mellow fruitiness of orange peel.

Blackcurrants contain a whopping amount of vitamin C (over 300 percent of the RDV!) as well as being choc-a-bloc full of antioxidants.
These black beauties are immune system warriors, helping to hit those colds and flu’s out of the ball game by fighting infections and boosting your immune system response, whilst also reducing inflammation and helping to support a healthy glow from the inside out.

And don’t forget the health benefiting hibiscus flowers renowned for their cooling effects and zingy taste as well as their immune and digestive system supportive qualities.

Naturally caffeine-free and ethically sourced ingredients: Rosehip*, hibiscus flower*, licorice root*, sweet fennel seed*, orange peel*, beetroot*, blackcurrant fruit* (4%), natural blackcurrant flavour (4%), orange essential oil flavour*. (*organic ingredients (99.9%)).

Pukka Elderberry and Echinacea Tea

Echinacea is a true gem when it comes to immune system care. Echinacea has been traditionally used to support the immune system and relieve the symptoms of the common cold, influenza type infections and seasonal allergic reactions for centuries, and is an excellent herb to consume as part of a winter wellness regime.

The other main star to this tea is Elderberry. Elderberry is an absolute staple for any immune support regime. Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, elderberry has been used for generations to fight off the cold and flu.

If you’re after this herb in other forms, check out Pukka’s elderberry syrup for additional support if you’re feeling run down.

Naturally caffeine-free and ethically sourced ingredients: Licorice root*, ginger root*, echinacea root and leaf* (10%), beetroot*, aniseed*, elderflower* (8%), peppermint leaf*, orange peel*, rosehip*, elderberry* (6%), acerola fruit*, orange essential oil flavour*, natural blackcurrant flavour. (*organic ingredients (99.9%)).

Pukka Three Ginger Tea

Pukka’s Three Ginger tea is a delicious warming combination of organic ginger, galangal and golden turmeric, creating the perfect naturally caffeine free beverage for anyone in need of a good boost in circulation, a healthy happy digestion and a decent warming up!

Ginger not only helps with digestion and reducing nausea, but it’s one hell of an immune system body guard, helping to fight off the flu and the common cold.

And did I mention its high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects?
I find this the perfect infusion to pop into my travel mug when I’m on my way to work or out in to the cold. It not only keeps your hands nice and toasty, but it also makes you really warm on the inside.

This tea is great with the addition of lemon and/or honey, and it’s really good mixed with Pukka’s three mint teafor additional digestive support.

Naturally caffeine-free and ethically sourced, 100% organically grown ingredients: Ginger root (52%), galangal root (28%), licorice root, turmeric root (4%).

Pukka Lemon Ginger and Manuka Honey Tea

This naturally caffeine-free infusion combines the spicy-sweet zest of sun-ripe lemons, slow-dried ginger root and elderflower with the natural sweetness of manuka honey.
If you’re suffering from the sniffles, or you’re in desperate need of a good warming through, this is your guy.

Pukka’s Lemon Ginger and Manuka honey combines the warming spices of ginger and turmeric with the digestive aid of fennel and licorice, which personally I can’t get enough of during the festive foodie season.
Then you’ve got your immune supportive herbs to see you through the coughs and colds, and the detoxing qualities of all of the herbs combined to help clear up your skin, aid your digestion and cleanse your insides.
Sip from morning till night!

Naturally caffeine-free and ethically sourced, 100% organically grown ingredients: Ginger root (32%), licorice root, elderflower, sweet fennel seed, lemon verbena leaf, turmeric root, lemon essential oil flavour (6%), lemon myrtle leaf, lemon whole (4%), manuka honey flavour (2%).
