The holidays are right around the corner, meaning that loads of food, family and fun are on the way. But this time of year can also be stressful, which can lead to fatigue, sleepless nights, and poor food choices.
Ayurvedic teas are well known around the globe for their invigorating health properties. To clear away those holiday blues here is a quick list of our favourite Ayurvedic tea ingredients to enjoy based on your Dosha or energy.
Vata tea blends
The holidays can be particularly hard on vata-type individuals as they already typically have smaller energy stores and can find themselves quickly out of balance during hustle and rush of the holiday season.
Vata teas help keep our ojas (“vigour” or life energy) in check. By maintaining our ojas, we keep our immune systems strong by eliminating stress, encouraging sound restful sleep and aiding our digestion.
Our vata tea blend is designed specifically to calm and soothe overactive nerves. This warming blend contains a precise blend of turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, liquorice, Tulsi (holy basil) and lemon myrtle that promotes quality sleep and helps keep colds and flu at bay.
Pitta tea blends
Pitta-type individuals are of both fire and water, having a fair amount of physical energy and powerful concentration while also being incredibly ambitious and quick to anger.
Pitta teas are unique in that they can both soothe the mind while also helping you “chill out” when you feel tense or frustrated. Our pitta tea blend of rose petals, liquorice, spearmint, hibiscus, and lavender can be prepared warm as well as turned into a refreshing summertime iced tea to cool off the mind, body, and emotions.
Kapha tea blends
Kapha-type individuals are strong, sturdy and naturally resistant to disease. Their overall positive outlook on life makes them a pleasure to be around, though when out of balance, a Kapha individual can transform from being affectionate and calm to stubborn and uninspired.
Our kapha tea blend is specially designed to enliven both the body and the mind. The fine balance of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, liquorice, rosehip, and spearmint stimulates individuals mentally and physically when they are feeling sluggish and lethargic, and it helps aid digestion – a perfect tea for sipping on after a heavy holiday meal!
What’s in your tea?
Many of today’s conventional teas contain caffeine, artificial flavouring, and even pesticides which have a detrimental effect on your health.
Our collection of Ayurvedic teas not only boast a rich combination of complex elements; we use only the finest organic natural ingredients rooted in ancient Hindu medicine that are renowned for promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
