Many of you may be familiar with Ayurvedic but for those of you that aren't, it is an ancient system of medicine from Indian culture. Literally translated 'Ayurvedic' means life-knowledge, which is why our Ayurvedic blend is the right accompaniment to moments of introspection, philosophical discussion or mindfulness.
The Ayurvedic approach considers three body types, or dosa's (pronounced dosha); vata, pitta and kapha. While one may be more pre-dominant, the idea is to balance all three to maintain health and minimise disease.
Our organic Aruyvedic blend is built around the Pitta dosha. It is a fantastic afternoon caffeine replacement because it is an organic herbal tea that is caffeine-free but it will still uplift your body from the inside out.
The blend features the a mix of chamomile that eases its way into the stomach however the use of cardamon, a touch of cinnamon and organic citrus peel challenge and move the digestive system. This keeps it active and busy so drowsiness is kept at bay. Brewing a mid strength pot every afternoon will leave you feeling light in the stomach but awake in the mind.
TEA TEMPLES OR LOOSE?
We do think it is a lovely idea to brew loose leaf pots of tea when you have the space and time to do so. However like all of our organic tea's we do offer this blend in tea temples that are made of a cellulose fibre that will break-down when disposed. The process of slowing down is all part of the rich ceremony that you can bring into your daily life, in its own way a mindful practise.
Actually now that we mention mindfulness, this is a wonderful tea to drink before meditating. It will certainly keep your internal organs stimulated and busy enough that if you sometimes struggle with sleepiness when meditating, this should keep that at bay.
