Spiritual enlightenment is not something one frequently expects in modern times. For the average tea drinker, the ability to start the morning with their favourite brew is enough to entice them out of bed – but what if your comforting cup of tea could nourish the body and soul at the same time? Read on to learn more about Ayurveda Tea.
History of Ayurveda Tea
Ayurveda Tea has been a key component of the ancient Ayurvedic holistic healthcare practice for over 5,000 years. Not only has this unique beverage been associated with promoting health
and longevity in India for centuries, but has also been greatly enjoyed by anyone immersing themselves in this divine and revitalising tradition. Using a mix of herbs grown on the Indian subcontinent, Ayurveda Tea is used to implement the Ayurveda philosophy, which prescribes a lifestyle as a key to a long and balanced life. These principles are applied to physical, intellectual and spiritual ways of life – or “dosha”, when translated from Sanskrit. But despite this practice seemingly being a relic of simpler times, the desired balance is still relevant in this world of great scientific advancement. In fact, striving for a state of physical and psychological well-being is still important, now more than ever, as we live alongside a turbulent society of distractions and misgivings.
The term “Ayurveda” is formed from the Sanskrit words “ayus”, which means “life”, and “veda”, which means knowledge or understanding. Combined, Ayurveda is considered “the science of life” – but is there any science behind it?
