Spokesperson: Jo Webber
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and tis the season for lashings of tidings of comfort and joy – and maybe a little tipple here and there too… There is nothing quite like a warming cup of mulled wine to thaw your bones on a cold winter’s day.
Pukka’s brand-new organic Winter Warmer tea is just the tonic – packed with festive flavours of cinnamon, clove, ginger star anise and orange, it truly is merriment in a mug. It is scrumptious brewed simply as a tea but can also work wonders stewed into something a little stronger too….
Rejoice in the warming and uplifting flavours of festivity in Pukka’s Winter Warmer. For this recipe, we are using organic merlot (as it’s the wine highest in antioxidants) but if you are avoiding alcohol, this is also delicious as a virgin mulled ‘cider’ – just swap out the organic merlot for organic apple juice. Comfort and joy, here we come.
We recommend trying to source organic ingredients for the below where you can – for your health and that of the planet’s too.
Five Pukka Winter Warmer tea bags
750ml merlot (or 750ml apple juice
1-3 tbsp of brown sugar to taste
A pinch of nutmeg
Pour your merlot into a large saucepan.
Cut two oranges in half and press cloves into the skin before adding to the pan.
Add five tea bags of Pukka’s Winter Warmer to the pan along with some grated nutmeg.
Warm the mixture gently making sure that it does not boil.
Add 1-3 tbsp of brown sugar depending on the level of sweetness you prefer and gently heat for 15 minutes.
Ladle into four glasses and say cheers to the festive season!
