Pukka Herbs, known for its organic herbal teas, has just launched a new latte – Night Time – to naturally support evening relaxation and sleep.
Expertly blended by Pukka’s Master Herbsmith Sebastian Pole, this luxuriously healthy herbal Night Time latte contains a plant-based blend of organic oat and nutty carob bean, infused with nature’s finest night-time herbs; lavender and chamomile, ashwagandha and nutmeg.
When added to milk (Pukka recommend almond), the result is a smooth, creamy and warming drink with a malty taste, hints of nutty chocolate and delicate floral and aromatic notes. All of which have been blended to benefit anyone wanting to aid natural relaxation before bed.
Master Herbsmith and Co-Founder of Pukka, Sebastian Pole, says:
‘Getting a good night’s sleep is just as important for our health and immunity as eating well and getting enough exercise. Natural herbal drinks can support and encourage the mind and body’s natural processes before and during sleep. Whether you’re trying to adapt to a new sleep pattern, or just need to get a good night’s rest, there is a vast range of herbs that have a longstanding use for nourishing the nervous system and helping us relax.
Our Night Time latte is a natural potion blended using potent organic herbs that help to calm the nervous system and swirl you softly into a deep sleep. As with all Pukka products, this latte is organic, natural and fair – crafted to benefit the health of people, plants and the planet.’
Organic, gluten-free and caffeine-free ingredients:
Ashwagandha- a tonic root used to help the body under long-term stress. Ashwagandha improves energy and cognition by acting on relaxing neurotransmitter systems and protecting brain cells from damage.
Carob powder – is nutrient-rich and caffeine-free and contains relaxing polyphenols. It also has a higher calcium content, which in addition to keeping your bones healthy and strong is essential to blood clotting, transmitting information along your nerves and maintaining a regular heartbeat.
Lavender flower – high in essential oils that relieve stress and improve sleep. Lavender’s relaxing effects are considered to be largely due to the essential oils present, whether inhaled, ingested or applied topically.
Chamomile flower – contains relaxing essential oils that affect nerve transmitters effectively improving sleep quality. Traditionally, chamomile tea has been used to calm and to ease digestive complaints linked to nervous conditions.
Oats (gluten-free) – traditionally considered one of the best nourishments, especially used in recovering from stress-induced nervous fatigue and to aid restful sleep.
Nutmeg – is a warming spice traditionally used to aid sleep. It has a traditional reputation for its settling and calming properties in both traditional Indonesian herbal medicine and Western herbal medicine. Stay asleep as well as fall asleep.
Cinnamon – provides a gently warming, sweet yet sugar-free flavour while improving blood sugar control. Cinnamon has been found to have beneficial effects on blood sugar control by preventing insulin resistance and glucose tolerance, which can both be caused by sleep loss.
Some 10 years ago, Sebastian blended and launched Pukka’s Night Time herbal tea, which has since gone on to become one of Pukka’s top five bestselling teas globally, supporting peaceful slumbers in over 30 countries across the globe.
The Night Time latte joins Pukka’s existing range of organic herbal lattes; Cacao Maca Magic, Turmeric Gold, Ginger Joy and Majestic Matcha Chai which are all available in store. All of Pukka’s lattes have no added sugar or artificial sweeteners and are blended with practitioner-grade organic herbs, fairly sourced from around the world.
