Review of Pukka Cool Mint Green Tea

Well I am on my holidays at the moment. To cut a long story short we always have an online supermarket delivery which my sister kindly did following all my dairy/lactose/milk free requests. Then she had to remember my teabags too. I requested my favourite Pukka three mint tea. My sister kindly did my request, not being a tea drinker she put Pukka mint tea into the search box and ordered these. I didn’t realise that Pukka did a different version of mint tea, so was excited by thought of trying an alternative. I loved the design of the box in the typical Pukka style with pictures of white ladies dancing. What was impressive with these teabags is that Pukka donate 20p to the WWF with every pack. All the ingredients are organically grown and ethically sourced. The main ingredient is green tea, 70% and 30% spearmint.

On opening the box I was immediately hit by the refreshing aroma of spearmint. The teabags are individually wrapped inside in a medium green packaging. On opening the teabag the aroma of the peppermint was slightly weaker. I placed the teabag into a mug of hot water and allowed the tea to infuse with the water as instructed. It turned a nice light green/brown with a subtle aroma of spearmint being emitted.

On sipping the tea it had a subtle peppermint flavour, which I found very refreshing. To be honest I found it difficult to distinguish the green tea element. I was personally a little disappointed with this tea. One of the things I really enjoy about drinking mint tea is the soothing sensation you get in your stomach as it enters your digestive system. This simply didn’t happen. That said overall I did enjoy this tea and found it very refreshing. Personally, I will be sticking to the Pukka three mint tea instead, which is still one of my favourite teas.

  1. i’m a fan of mint flavors. and i find that when it comes to mint tea, it is best to stick with pure mint as 100% ingredient, instead of one that is mixed with a regular black or green tea.
