Tea & Ayurveda



Tea India Launches Ayurvedic Tea Range

As a response to tea drinkers growing interest in health & wellness, caffeine free and Vegan Friendly products Tea India has launched a range of 3 Ayurvedic teas.

Ayurveda is a holistic approach to life rooted in India and practised for over 5,000 years. It means science of life (Ayur=Life, Veda=Science/Knowledge) and is based on balance, where one’s diet can sustain the mind and body’s equilibrium.

The practise of Ayurveda can have powerful results and is designed to promote human happiness, health and creative growth.

The 3 new blends will address and respond to consumer’s search for more sleep, more energy and more balance in their lives.  The blends will also support those embracing an Ayurvedic lifestyle offering a blend to complement and balance the 3 bio-energetic forces (doshas); Vata, Pitta, Kapha which govern the mind, body and spirit.

The 3 blends are:

PEACE & CALM (perfect for a primary pitta dosha)

A blend of fennel, camomile, peppermint, coriander and rose petal. Fennel is known for relieving tension in muscles whilst camomile said to soothe the nervous system, promoting a feeling of complete peace and calm.

Harmony & Balance (perfect for a primary Vata dosha)

A blend of tulsi, fennel, cinnamon and ginger. Tulsi is known as Holy Basil and is considered as one of the most sacred Ayurvedic herbs in India due to its restorative and spiritual properties. Known as the ‘Queen of Herbs’ it is believed to promote long life and is taken as an elixir to promote balance and resilience to all life’s challenges. Fennel is a key ingredient for digestive discomfort as it acts as a fantastic carminative (a herb or preparation intended to either prevent formation of gas) - bloating and gas is something vata types are prone to.

Vitality & energy (perfect for a primary kapha dosha)

A blend of ginger, cinnamon, tulsi and turmeric. Turmeric is bitter and astringent and balancing for kapha and cleansing for the blood/circulatory system. Ginger and turmeric are said to aid digestion which will increase energy levels promoting a feeling of vitality.

Interest in Ayurveda is in growth with the explosion of yoga practise in the UK; in the UK, “yoga” was one of Google’s most searched-for words in 2016, while the yoga and pilates business brings in £812m a year, and rising. Put simply, physical yoga can be considered the exercise arm of Ayurveda. Connected by their philosophical roots, yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences that share many synergies.

Tea India’s Ayurvedic consultant is Central London based Ayurvedic Health Consultant and practitioner Geeta Vara.
