pukka

Whenever I hear the word "pukka" my first thought is of Jamie Oliver and his wild phrases.

Awhile back, I saw this line of tea made by a company in the U.K. at the gourmet supermarket, but I didn't buy it because I still had some other teas around.

Then, in June, the Japanese foodie magazine that I subscribe to had a giveaway. Just answer their questionnaire and choose a present from their list. I don't always enter their monthly giveaways, but it just so happened that they were giving away this tea. So, I filled out the questionnaire and sent in my entry.

Last year, from the same magazine, I also won this Cuoca Chocolate Tasting Set.

Fast forward to today. As I was walking back to our apartment, I saw a man standing in front of our door. I was kind of leery at first, but realized it was the home delivery guy and rushed to catch him in the stairwell.

After signing for the package, I looked at the package but couldn't remember what I entered for, I was quickly reminded when I opened the package.

What a great surprise...I can't wait to try these teas!

I hope they are good, Deb, and not too "herby".

Take care.

I hope you like those teas! I use Pukka's Digestif fennel tea when I'm not feeling well. It really settles a sour stomach.

I'll have to look out for Love Tea. Is it chock full of viagra?
