About Black Tea
The black tea (Camellia Sinensis) which Pukka uses in their Black Spiced Chai comes from an organic tea estate in Sri Lanka where the climate is ideally suited to tea cultivation. The tea leaves are harvested weekly; only the top 1-2 inches of the mature plant are picked. Theses buds and leaves are called 'flushes' and a plant will grow a new flush every 7-10 days during the growing season.

As black tea retains its flavour for several years it has long been an article of trade. Compressed bricks of black tea were used as currency in Mongolia and Tibet as recently as the nineteenth century. The tea plants would grow into trees if they were undisturbed but cultivated plants are pruned to waist height for ease of picking.

Pukka Herbs Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe for children to drink Pukka herbal teas?
Pukka do not recommend their teas to any child under 1 year old without the advice of a practitioner. This is just a precautionary principle as the herbs can be safely used by anyone but as children's immune systems are still immature they recommend that you take the advice of a practitioner after a face-to-face meeting.

Is it okay to take herbal remedies if I'm about to have surgery?
Pukka advise stopping herbs 7 days before surgery to avoid any complications.
All of their formulas are safe to take for surgery, but due to the associated risk of affecting blood clotting they advise that they are avoided prior to surgery.

Can I drink your teas that have licorice in if I have high blood pressure?
Essentially, Yes. All problems ever associated with licorice have been from eating excessive licorice candy sweets. There is a consensus amongst experts that a safe level of licorice consumption for most people is at least 2.5g per day. The ΓÇýculprit' is considered to be one of licorice's compounds known as Glycyrrhizic acid (GA) that can cause renal sodium retention leading to increased blood pressure in some individuals. The ΓÇýsafe' amount of 2.5g per day is arrived at by determining that consuming about 100mg/day of GA avoids any blood pressure effects. The typical GA content of licorice is in the range of about 4% for Glycyrrhiza glabra (European licorice). As the highest percentage of licorice in any of their teas is 25% (Licorice and Cinnamon tea) and the herbs in the teabag weigh a total of 2g, it means that you would have to take 5 cups a day of Licorice and Cinnamon  tea to be near to consuming 2.5g of licorice a day and arriving at the 100mg threshold. All of their other teas have less licorice.  Please see the information under ΓÇ£Are Pukka teas safe to drink during pregnancyΓÇØ for more information regarding Licorice and Glycyrrhizic Acid consumption during pregnancy.
