Ginger: deliciously diverse

It’s in the 1,000-mile ribbon of mountains known as the Western Ghats that much of our ginger is grown – an area designated by the IUCN as one of the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots.

It’s a principle that our founder and herbsmith, Sebastian, has stuck by – and gone to the ends of the earth for – since the beginning of his Ayurveda practice in Somerset all those years ago.

Meet Sebastian, Pukka's herbsmith

After several years of walking in the Himalayas, sleeping under the stars and learning about plants, an encounter with an Indian healer inspired Sebastian to return to England to study the powers of herbs. An Ayurvedic clinic, a Yoga practice, and a caravan followed – and, not long after, the herbal tea company you know and love today as Pukka Herbs.
