In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “Knowledge of Life” and is pronounced ( eye – yer – vay – da ). Ayurvedic is an ancient India holistic health care system that has roots in traditional Indian philosophies. Known to enhance the balance of a person’s everyday life through the use of herbs, plants, fruits, and spices, Ayurveda teas result in delicious and aromatic drinks.
According to Ayurvedic practices, all of life’s functions are controlled through three energies called Doshas; dosha kapha, dosha vata, and dosha pitta.
Ayurvada kapha affects endurance, strength and promotes self-healing. Ayurvedic kapha teas, spicy in nature, relieves congestion and is useful as a digestion tea.
Ayurvada vata dosha governs the life force and is good for dry skin and poor circulation. Ayurvedic vata teas usually have a toasty and sweet citrus taste.
Ayurvada pitta dosha balances metabolic energy while regulating digestion and promoting appetite. An Ayurvedic pita dosha tea is usually cooling and refreshing.
