Ayurvedic tea blends have been used by people for thousands of years, but Tetley tea is now stirring up new interest in the 5,000-year-old sister science to yoga.
Ayurveda is a system of medicine and holistic healing that emphasizes the balancing of the mind, body and spirit. To do so, each person is recognized as having one of three dominant mind-body types, known as Doshas, which include Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each Dosha expresses a unique set of physical, emotional and mental characteristics. For instance, those who might identify as having a high level of the Vata Dosha might describe themselves as always on the go, highly energetic and creative.
Tetley's Ayurvedic Balance collection includes three herbal tea blends for the Vata, Pitta and Kapha constituents. To help people find the best tea for them, Tetley put together an online tool to determine one's dominant Dosha.
