Therapeutic benefits:

Fennel seed: Fennel seed is a marvellous digestive herb. People prone to nervousness and anxiety easily get upset digestion and fennel can help to counteract this. Its high aromatic content helps to relax the smooth muscles in the digestive system. This helps to prevent cramps and gripes by reducing wind and bloating.

Licorice root: This sweet root is great for removing spasms and inflammation from the digestive tract. It is also excellent at removing dryness from the lungs and is a traditional remedy for dry coughs.

Chamomile flower: This world famous yellow flower soothes the nervous system. It contains lots of calcium which feeds the nervous system. When we are stressed the nervous system is taxed; Chamomile can play a part in balancing some of this pressure placed on the nervous system. It is also a renowned digestive calming herb that alleviates cramps and spasms.

Gotu Kola leaf: The leaf of this herb looks like a brain and it is traditionally used to treat nervous disorders. A bit like Ginkgo leaf, it also increases cerebral circulation. As blood flow is essential to life, Gotu Kola is a great addition to assist the body’s natural tendency to seek balance.

Cardamom seed: These delicious tropical seeds are wonderfully aromatic. They help the digestion to function efficiently. As they are warming they help to relax any tightness in the abdomen and lungs.

Ginger root: This spicy root encourages the digestive system to be perfectly balanced. It stimulates digestive enzymes and maximises nutrient assimilation.

Marshmallow root: This native root is very soft and healing for all the mucus membranes of the body. It specifically counteracts dryness and inflammation.

Ashwagandha root: This is one of Ayerveda’s great tonic herbs. It helps the body to adapt to different stresses. It strengthens the nervous system whilst also helping it to  calm down. Also known as Indian Ginseng, it boosts energy without over stimulating.


To use: Infuse for at least 5 mins in 85-90°C boiled water.

About Pukka Herbs:
Pukka Herbs was founded in 2001 by us Sebastian Pole, an Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, and Tim Westwell - business development. They started with a few thousand pounds and a mutual passion for promoting well-being and providing 100% organic Ayurvedic herbal remedies and teas. 

A unique range of organic herbal remedies and award winning teas based on the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda – ‘the art of living wisely.’ Pukka Herbs created these tea blends to make the wonders of this wisdom easily accessible to everyone.

Pukka Herbs are passionate about creating great tasting herbal teas using the finest organic herbs from sustainable sources and are:

* committed to conservation and community support

Sebastian Pole, our master tea blender, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, uses his extensive herbal knowledge and expertise to formulate the most flavoursome organic herbal teas, each with unique therapeutic properties to help balance your health.

All herbs can be traced back to the fields from where they were grown. Pukka Herbs source herbs directly from the independent farming co-operatives they help set up in India and Sri Lanka to ensure farmers are paid a fair wage (currently pay 50-200% above market rates for raw materials), and to ensure minimal impact on the environment and maximum benefit for the growers. Pukka Herbs works directly with over 500 families growing Ayurvedic herbs organically and plant over 1,000,000 plants and trees per year.

Pukka's herbal teas truly are pukka!

We hope you enjoy them!

(Pukka is a Hindi word meaning ‘authentic’, ‘genuine’ or more colloquially ‘top quality’. It comes from the Sanskrit ‘pakwa’ and this sentiment of offering the best quality organic Ayurvedic herbs and service is what we at Pukka Herbs are all about.)

Body-mind types:
In Ayurveda we are said to have body-mind types. These are known as dosha and consist of vata, pitta and kapha. Each dosha has certain attributes and describes our individual characteristics, inherited traits, our likes and dislikes and our tendencies. Generally we are a combination of doshas but one will usually dominate. If a dosha becomes out of balance, which can happen for a number of reasons, it can effect how we behave and even our health.


Typical characteristics of each dosha type:
Vata types tend to be visionary, imaginative and full of creative energy but when they are out of balance they can be forgetful, spaced out, anxious and uptight. Typical vata problems are erractic digestion, bloating, anxiety or joint disorders.

Pitta types are confident, passionate leaders, organised and perfectionists, but excess pitta can make them fiery, snappy and irritable. Pitta people have a tendency to suffer from skin irritations, overheating, heartburn and ulcers.

Kapha types tend to be loyal, kind-hearted, calm and full of love, but a kapha overload can make them lethargic, lacking in energy and a little overindulgent. Kapha types are prone to congestion, excess weight and sluggish digestion.


It’s important to try and keep our doshas in balance in order to stay in top form. It’s not always easy with the hectic lives we lead, but if we can learn what our body needs and adjust our lifestyle accordingly, it’s a big step closer to staying healthy and happy!
