Would you agree that there is comfort in a steaming hot cup of tea?
I wholeheartedly believe there is!
Whether it’s chamomile, peppermint, ginger, or cinnamon, there are many different ingredients with a variety of benefits in many teas today. Tea has always been a part of my family traditions. It is the first thing our family drinks before breakfast. Perhaps it’s the British influence on my Jamaican heritage.
I drink tea at a minimum of twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. It’s an important part of my daily routine, and when I don’t have my tea, boy is it noticeable!
Unfortunately, I cannot drink just any types of teas anymore.
For me, the days of drinking teas with caffeine are gone. Why? My own personal health challenges.
As part of my healthy journey, I have drastically reduced any types of caffeine in my diet and that includes tea and coffee. So yes, I drink decaf coffee and a variety of herbal teas.
When I saw that Tetley launched a new line of Ayurvedic Balance teas, I was intrigued. Firstly, anything that will give this busy working mom of 3 balance is good in my books, and I hadn’t even tried them yet!
Secondly, I had no idea about Ayurvedic teachings which is the balancing of the mind, body, and spirit. Tetley took that knowledge and with the help of Ayurvedic experts, created these balance blend teas for us!
The new teas are full of all natural ingredients such as: peppermint, turmeric, cinnamon an ginger root to name a few. Each one of the new balance teas have their own special benefits based on your “dosha”or your specific need at the moment whether you need poise, cooling, or vigour.
WHAT IS A DOSHA?
“Ayurveda recognizes 3 doshas (or energies) – Vata, Pitta and Kapha – that describe everyone’s biological, physical and mental states and tendencies”
Each one of us may have a dominant dosha but everyone has a combination of all 3.
Take the dosha quiz and find out more about your dosha and how these teas can help you achieve balance!
While my personal dosha results are Pitta, I have taken a liking to drinking the Vigour-Kapha (invigorating) in the morning:
and the Poise-Vata (calming) before bedtime.
