In the winter time I tend to feel lethargic, sluggish and lazy. In Ayurvedic terms this signifies a kapha imbalance if you believe in such things. I decided to get an herbal kapha tea to see if it would help to perk me up without any caffeine.

This stuff is VERY strong and potent. It contains ginger, turmeric, saffron, cardamom, black pepper and clove. It tastes a bit like a really spicy soup or some kind of Indian marinade. The clove is a lot stronger than I thought it would be. I have to say, this is pretty invigorating and warming stuff. However, it is not for the feint of heart due to the large amount of spice. I also wouldn’t drink this if I had a stomach ache or heartburn, I think it could cause utter turmoil!

I guess it’s about what I expected but I’m seriously NOT drinking this for the flavor experience, more for medicinal purposes. :)

Wowzers…made my eyes water just reading the ingredient list!


@gmathis – it is very strong!


Ginger and tumeric are supposed to be good for stomach ailments. This tea interests me. Thanks for reviewing it and putting it on my radar.


@mtchyg. no problem. also they are both supposed to be good anti-inflammatories!
