Wellbeing is at the heart of everything at Pukka, whether it is emotional, physical or environmental. In Hindi Pukka means ‘real, authentic or genuine’ and this was exactly the type of organisation Pukka’s founders Tim Westwell and Sebastian Pole wanted to create. The practicing herbalist Tim and Sebastian founded Pukka in 2001 with the mission to create a world where plants play a central role in human health and wellbeing. The organic herbal creations – including teas, supplements and lattes – are inspired by the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and artistry of nature, reflecting the knowledge of plants and love of the world.
Pukka is a beacon for sustainable and ethical business. All of Pukka’s teas are certified Fair for Life, one of the highest independent fair trade standards in the world and many of its teas use FairWild herbs. Pukka is a B-Corp, signifying its ongoing commitment to support conservation through commerce. And over one percent of its sales are given to environmental causes around the world every year through 1% for the Planet.
