Chakra Tea is a spiritual, balancing infusion made from a delightful mix of herbs and spices. Its name refers to the holistic belief that we consist of seven energies - all of which require care and attention.
The word “Chakra,” in Sanskrit, literally means “Wheel.” However, most use it to convey harmony in the mind, body and soul. It is no surprise, then, that our Chakra Tea is a particularly popular choice.
Its ingredients include Apple Pieces, Fennel Tea, Ginger, Orange Peel, Carrot Flakes, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Leaves, Black Pepper, Rose Petals, White Rosebuds, Basil, Raspberry Leaf Tea, Lavender Blossoms, Marigold Blossoms and Beetroot. Combined, they boast an indulgently herbaceous flavour with sweet, fruity undertones - a true delight to the senses.
The Stories That Make This Tea
Many of the components that make up Chakra Tea have truly fascinating stories. Fennel, for instance, is a hardy, aromatic, perennial plant belonging to the Carrot (Apiaceae) family.
It grows yellow flowers and feathery leaves, which, although native to the Mediterranean, have since spread across the world. Perhaps most interesting of all, however, is the fact that it shares close ties with the history of humankind.
The Fennel plant itself once grew on the site of the infamous Battle of Marathon in 490 BCE. Such was its abundance there, in fact, that the decisive Greek victory over the invading Persian army took its name from this herb.
The word “Marathon” (μαραθώνας), translated from Greek, means “a place of Fennel.” Then there is Ginger, a spice that, unlike most, has been used in the west for over 2,000 years.
Ginger first arrived in Europe through Ancient Rome, whereby it quickly became popular due to its health benefits. Interestingly, the Tudor King Henry VIII (1491-1547) reportedly recommended it for treating the plague, while Queen Elizabeth I later came up with the idea of gingerbread men.
Another noteworthy ingredient is Cinnamon, which most famously finds its way into Chai Tea.
One legend, created by Arab merchants trying to make a sale, is that Cinnamon was once “guarded” by gigantic birds high on mountain peaks. When the locals discovered its existence, they tried to entice the creatures down by luring them with ox meat.
The birds would then return to their nests with their food, the weight of which caused the Cinnamon to topple down to the ground for everyone to take.
This blend has many more tales waiting to be told. Yet the time has come, undoubtedly, for you to try Chakra Tea for yourself.
