Full of sweet-shop memories, this powerful aromatic has actually been used for thousands of years, not just in foods for flavour, but also as a digestif. The herbalist, John Gerard wrote in 1597 ‘The Seed wasteth and consumeth winde, and is good against belchings and upbraidings of the stomacke, alaieth gripings of the belly.’ Simply translated this means it's good if you eat too many beans. In India, a pinch of aniseed is often eaten after meals to soothe the stomach and aid the digestive fire.The aniseed used in Pukka products comes from organic farmers in Turkey where the fields are filled every year with the aromatic, cloud like, flower heads.
Elder is a small tree that is native to most of Europe. The flowers and the berries are both used to make a variety of drinks and tonics. Enjoy Pukka organic elderberries in Elderberry Syrup.
One of Nature's most wonderful gifts, honey is produced by bees through collecting nectar from flowers - simulataneously pollenating plants as they go. It's one of the most beautiful virtuous circles our amazing planet has to offer. Amazingly, to produce a single jar of honey, the foraging bees have to travel extraordinary distances - perhaps as much as three times around our planet. Pukka's honey comes from sustainable organic hives - giving us the purest form of sweetness you can imagine.
One of the Brassicaceae family - which includes better known members such as broccoli and cabbage, horseradish grows up to around 5 feet tall in the wild. It's the root of the plant however that produce the amazing taste and scent. Only when cut do the plants enzymes break down and produce the mustard oil so familiar to most of us.
Sweet, earthy and delicious it perfectly harmonises the perfect cup of tea. Growing in sandy soils its creeping roots spread in every direction drawing nutrients from deep within the earth. Pukka buy licorice from FairWild projects in Khazakstan and Spain ensuring that both what Pukka take will be regenerated to be there in the future and that the collectors are paid a fair wage.
