To discover the five new tea flavours of Pukka Wellness, we were invited to join a workshop at Super Farmers to learn more about herbs and spices, and the benefits they can have for you.
Hosted by Cynthea from Super Farmers and the Pukka team, we learn about the many great benefits of the multiple plants that can be grown easily in our gardens. From learning that manuka honey is anti-inflammatory, like turmeric, ginger and galangal (a type of ginger), to cloves being anti-bacterial, like cinnamon, star anise and cardamon, we then make our way to Cynthea’s garden to harvest some leaves to make our own tea.
I went for a lot of different herbs because I was too curious about how it would taste if I added over 3 different herbs. On my list, I choose an Indian borage leaf, pandan, lemongrass, 2 lime leaves, Thai basil, cologne mint (which really smells like cologne, hence the name!), dried lime zest and dried orange zest! After having my leaves washed, we’ve put in every tea it is quite funky because of the long mix, but quite enjoyable!
