History of the Pukka Herbs organic herbal tea brand
Pukka Herbs founders were brought together by fate and a mutual interest in promoting ayurveda benefits and natural wellness.
An avid medicinals herbs grower, Sebastian Pole, was a recognized practitioner in ayurveda, Western and Chinese traditional herbal medicines.
Fond of herbal teas, he realised that there was a lack of natural and organic herbal teas that tasted delicious.
Fate intervened in 2002 when Tim Westwell placed an ad in a local newspaper looking for a partner to grow business in a healthy way. He got only one response. It was Sebastian.
Working together initially from Tim’s flat, they set up Pukka Herbs brand to share their herbal passion through organic ayurvedic herbal teas and bio nutrients. Today there are more than 40 Pukka People !
