Pukka strive each and every day to help create a Pukka planet that benefits people, plants and the planet.
Pukka’s story began back in 2002 in Sebastian’s kitchen and Tim’s spare bedroom (the founders). From these very humble beginnings grew Pukka as we know it now: a provider of organic herbal teas and wellness supplements for over 49 countries spanning over Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North, South and Central America.
They work hard every day to capture the amazing power of nature and harness it in their award-winning herbal teas and natural supplements. A perfect world for them is one where plants play a central role in everybody’s health and wellbeing, in the most ethical and sustainable way they can.
What is Pukka’s inspiration?
Ayurveda was the main inspiration for Pukka. It’s simply translated as ‘knowledge of life’ (Ayur = life and Veda = knowledge in Sanskrit). This ancient Indian holistic philosophy teaches people how to balance their mind, body and spirit in order to live a wholesome, healthy and more fulfilled life.
How do Pukka make their tea?
First, Pukka carefully scour Mother Earth for the highest-quality organic herbs that are rich in natural oils.
They work closely with thousands of herb farmers from over 20 countries who both respect and understand nature, plants, and the soil they use. Inspired by their hard work and enthusiasm, Pukka make it a high priority to create long-lasting relationships that benefit both the farmers and their company.
Then, they dry the herbs and analyse them in the Pukka lab to make sure they meet the rigorous standards set. After this, master herbsmith Sebastian Pole steps in to blend the herbs using the wisdom of Ayurveda – India’s ancient health system.
This process ensures every Pukka tea is extremely high quality and each blend’s associated health benefits are top priority.
