A Cuppa Pukka!!

Sebastian Pole using his tasting pots to brew some tea

Spending a morning with Sebastian, founder of Pukka, at his home herb garden in Somerset is a good way to start the day.  His love of plants and overwhelming positive feeling of wellbeing is infectious. The weather was changeable so we did have to dodge some rain and head into the kitchen for shelter and to watch the master at work as he sourced his herb collection and concocted a spring morning tea recipe.

Sebastian spent time in the Himalayas where he was inspired by the healing properties of the plants around him. Back in England, he studied Ayurvedic, Chinese and Western herbal medicine which he practices at Neal's Yard in Bath. So if you're thinking of brewing, check out the flavours of herbal teas and supplements from Pukka, at most supermarkets near you. Thanks Georgia for helping out with the shoot!

Early in the New Year, I shot a presentation on behalf of 33 Shake, an endurance sports nutrition brand. The shake consists of 33 superfood and is super healthy for anyone wishing to have an immune boost (or wishing to partake in any endurance feat!). Erica and Warren Pole, founders of 33 Shake went to Bristol to give the editors of 220 Triathlon magazine an early morning short, sharp workout!

Surprisingly, they seemed to enjoy it! The shake went down well too and the next day, the procedure was repeated again, this time with Road CC in Bath.  It was great to hang out with Erica & Warren, thanks for having me to shoot!
