Are all Pukka teas caffeine free?
All Pukka teas are naturally caffeine free except for the following that contain green or black tea or cocoa;
- All Green Teas: Clean Matcha Green, Supreme Matcha Green, Mint Matcha Green, Ginseng Matcha Green and Turmeric Gold.
- All Black Teas: Elegant English Breakfast, Gorgeous Earl Grey

Pukka does not use any form of decaffeinated black, green or herbal tea. We like to use plants in their most natural form, and the decaffeination process alters a plant’s natural chemistry. Some decaffeination processes can also utilise various chemical and mechanical procedures that are not in line with Pukka’s organic principles and so for the moment we have left the tea leaves as they come. Green tea and matcha naturally contain caffeine, but also contain a constituent known as L-theanine which can actually help to balance the effects of caffeine in the body.
Do Pukka teabags contain plastic?
Tea companies have recently come under scrutiny for the use of polypropylene, a plastic used to heat-seal the edges of teabags. Pukka doesn’t use this kind of material. Instead, they use a simple stitch of organic cotton and a unique folding process. This means they don’t need to use polypropylene to hold their teabags together. Pukka were the first company to ever use organic strings to hold our teabags together without the need of a metal staple or polypropylene.
Why are Pukka teabags wrapped in individual sachets?
There are two main ways to keep a teabag fresh: wrap the individual bags or wrap the entire box. This is essential if you want to protect the high-quality therapeutic organic herbs and essential oils. At Pukka they prefer to wrap each bag in an envelope so that once the box (ours is made with FSC certified cardboard and printed with vegetable-based inks) is open the other teabags remain fresh.
What is Pukka teabags paper made from?
Pukka's tea bag paper is made of a special blend of natural abaca (a type of banana), wood pulps and plant cellulose fibres. They are staple-free, stitched together with organic cotton. The tea bag strings are made from 100% organic, non-GMO cotton.
Are your teabag envelopes recyclable?
After four years of research and development, Pukka made a tea envelope that can go in your paper recycling bin. Our brand new FSC® certified paper envelopes still include a very thin coating of plastic that is free from BPA and PVC. It’s so thin that it can be recycled with normal paper. After successful trials with some of our bulkier blends, from 1st May 2018 they began the transition for all their teas which are now in these recyclable sachets. Look out for the recycling logo on your envelope. Looking even further ahead they are currently researching ways to source this recyclable barrier from a compostable plant-based source too.
Can I recycle your teabags in my food recycling? And can I home compost them?
You can recycle the Pukka teabags in your food recycling bins/caddies. And you can home compost our teabags too. Pukka are currently applying for an independent certification to give you added peace of mind that their teabags are 100% compostable. They are confident the paper will pass.
How to best brew Pukka tea?
As a guideline all Pukka herbal tea blends are designed to be brewed for up to 15 mins depending on your preferred flavour strength. As a general rule, depending on the herbs contained in the blend, the optimum infusion time is between 5-10 minutes. If using freshly boiled water the herbs infuse fairly quickly (within 5-6 minutes) and steeping for longer will not increase the benefit of the herbs within the tea. Also after this time the flavour may be altered i.e.. green teas can become ‘bitter’ if infused for too long. For example, Supreme Matcha Green, we recommend using freshly boiled water and infuse for 3-5minutes. All the brewing instructions relate to one teabag per standard mug – up to approx. 250ml per teabag.
Why don't Pukka sell loose teas?
Pukka have decided against producing loose tea because the blends of herbs they use in their teas are very carefully measured. In the case of loose tea, herbs can settle unevenly in the pack, which could create an inconsistency of flavour and herbal efficacy than they intend. In a teabag, they can measure out enough of every ingredient for one cup so every tea is as delicious and naturally good for you as it should be.
Are Pukka teas gluten free?
All Pukka teas are free from gluten containing ingredients. However, they want to point out that Night Time and Relax contain oat straw flowering tops. Although the analytical tests undertaken on these teas show that gluten is absent, consumers who are extremely sensitive may want to check the suitability of oat straw further for related gluten allergies like avenin.
Are Pukka teas vegetarian or vegan?
All Pukka teas are vegetarian. Lemon, Ginger and Manuka Honeyand Chamomile, Vanilla and Manuka Honey contain honey and may not, therefore, be suitable for all vegan diets.
Are Pukka teas Kosher certified?
All Pukka teas are Kosher certified by the Orthodox Union.
What is the calorie content of your teas?
The calorie content of the teas is very low so they do not list the calorific/nutritional values of their teas on the packaging.
Can I drink Pukka teas that contain licorice in if I have high blood pressure?
They love licorice at Pukka. Sweetness is just one of the six essential tastes that their Herbsmith Sebastian Pole considers when creating our blends, carefully balancing the therapeutic effect of our teas with the best taste experience. It is calming and nourishing, and its silky nature helps soothe your whole system. In many traditional medicine approaches around the world it is also seen as a good harmoniser of other herbs in a mix. Adding licorice to our teas brings out the best of all ingredients so you get the most balanced blend.
Some studies into the effects of licorice on our bodies have suggested that it has the potential to increase blood pressure and decrease blood potassium levels. These studies have used either isolated extracts of a constituent known as glycyrrhizin (GL) or licorice candy sweets, and the implications for taking licorice in its natural form, e.g. in teas, have not been established. For example, in licorice candy, high levels of sugar and salt may also affect blood pressure or potassium levels. Studies on the risks of licorice candy have also been done in countries where recreational consumption is more common.
Most Pukka teas have levels of licorice that are too low to have an impact on blood pressure unless taken excessively. However, there are a few where levels are higher and here we should take due precautions. If you have moderate or severe hypertension (high blood pressure) you should monitor your readings if you are taking regular daily quantities of Pukka teas that have high levels of licorice. The teas with the most have the word ‘Licorice’ in the title of the tea: Three Licorice, Peppermint and Licorice, and Licorice and Cinnamon (for which they put a high blood pressure warning on the labels). Other relatively high licorice levels are seen in Mint Refresh and Lemon, Ginger and Manuka.
On balance it is probably wise not to consume any high-licorice tea every day if you have high blood pressure. However, it is regularity and frequency that makes the difference and you should be able to enjoy occasional cups of all these teas safely.
Are Pukka teas safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
