Refresh tea is a cooling blend of peppermint, licorice and rose to help you feel completely revived. A perfect minty blend for a cooling and totally chilled experience. Ideal for balancing those fiery Pitta types.

When heat accumulates in the body it can make you intense, agitated and have heartburn or an upset stomach. This tea is blended to balance this heat and irritation. It is our original Pitta balancing tea.

Peppermint leaf, roses and hibiscus flowers are wonderfully cooling.

Fennel seed and coriander seed assist your digestion.

Licorice is a traditional balancing herb.


How to enjoy: Infuse for at least 5 mins in 85-90°C boiled water.

Origin: UK with co-op farmers in India and Sri Lanka; Manufacturing in the UK is under tight restrictions in accordance with UK medicines standards.

Therapeutic benefits:
Peppermint leaf: This aromatic leaf directly prevents spasms and pain in the digestive tract. Its menthol content is also wonderfully cooling to any excess liquid in the stomach. It has a ‘spreading’ function that helps to ease excessive intensity and relax the liver.

Licorice root: A great herb for moderating irritation as it is cooling, soothing and grounding. Great for digestion and specific for ulcers and intestinal inflammation.

Hibiscus flower: This beautiful red flower is mildly sour and is used to ‘cool’ the blood. This means that it acts as an alterative to help clear infections.

Fennel seed: As a herb that balances all three constitutional types it is great for settling digestion. It clears inflammatory toxins via the urinary tract.

Red rose flower: The perfect cooling and cordial remedy for irritation. It calms an agitated heart and lifts the spirits. Roses have a direct affinity for the blood and help to heal any emotional problems.

Coriander seed: These seeds are a supurb remedy for guiding inflammatory heat out via the urine. They are especially good for strengthening digestion without overly stimulating it.

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
* a Carbon Neutral company
* invest in renewable and sustainable energy projects as well as reforestation programmes
* all aspects of the business carbon emissions from Field to Shelf are off-set by donations to Climate Care. Climate Care makes donations to energy saving projects
* maintain policies such as limiting the flying in of materials and use shipping as much as possible
* support Plantlife International - involved in protecting wild medicinal species

* recycled paper and vegetable inks are used when possible.

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!
