From The Tao of Tea

In Sanskrit means “knowledge of life”. It is the art of holistic living and the oldest (5000 years old) medicine system in practice today. Ayurvedic philosophy also indicates that everything in the universe is made up of 5 elements; fire, air, water, earth and space. These elements are combined under 3 “energies”, known as ‘Doshas’ (body constitutions). The three doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha and represent the “subtle energy” that combines and balances the characteristics of the elements it influences. This force has to often combine and balance seemingly contrary forces such as fire and water under pitta. Vata combines air and space. While kapha brings water and earth together. The principle of balancing the body is done by first determining your Ayurvedic constitution or dosha type. when we recognize this, we can begin to create balance for ourselves in our health and lifestyle. We are happy to offer our initial offering of Ayurvedic Teas. We hope to provide continuous expansion to these varieties and introduction to Indian herbs and spices.

I had no clue what this tea was but it sounded cool so I bought it. When I opened it up I was wondering what in the world I was looking at. This is holy basil tea from India known as a healing plant and is considered sacred to some. The taste of this tea is completely different than anything else so I cannot compare it to anything- however, just imagine what would happen if India chai met yerba mate and blended together… that’s what it would be closest to. Rather strong and out there taste overall. Fun to try if you get the chance to taste a holy basil you should take it to understand the unique taste.
