What is Ayurveda?
This tea has become a godsend to me, a small ritual I put into practice 6 months ago, that I have come to love, not only for its flavor but for its energizing and cleansing qualities.
Ayurveda originates from India, over 3000 years ago, and is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems, based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its primary function is to restore or maintain balance within the body, not fight disease.
I wholeheartedly believe in the healing power of plants , and how wonderfully they can assist our bodies in healing themselves. Healing foods don’t have to be flavorless and boring, they can be vibrant and delicious, too.
If you are going caffeine-free , you can use an herbal tea (like tulsi, chamomile, mint or ginger) instead of green tea, and sometimes I will use yerba matte, white tea or black tea instead of green tea, and other whole spices ( like a cinnamon stick, whole clove, cardamom) just to mix it up a bit.
