I am currently trying to drink less caffeine so am trying out lots of different teas such as green tea and fruit teas. My son's girlfriend is also into drinking these sorts of teas as well and it was she who purchased this box of Pukka Vanilla Chai for us.
Being all to do with Ayurvedic medicine and using organic ingredients it sounded lovely. Also being called 'Vanilla' made me think that it would be mild and gentle and I would really like it.
When making the tea I just leave it to infuse in a mug and then did add a little sugar, but you could alternately add some honey or just have it as it is.
Now son's girlfriend really likes this but it is not my cup of tea at all I am afraid.
The whole thing smells and tastes very spicy and warming. But I feel the vanilla is completely overshadowed by the cinnamon and other spices. This would probably be fine for people that like cinnamon but it is not really one of my favourite spices and really I think this should be called Cinnamon tea rather than vanilla.
Not one I would really want to try again but I would be happy to buy other Pukka flavours as they are a good reputable brand and have wholesome products.
Many different flavours of teas are promoted on their website and if you visit you can register and get some samples sent out to you. I do not know how many you get but its worth a try as I think with these herbal teas it is something you should be able to try before buying a whole box.
