Ayurveda, the alternative Indian medical system based on ancient writings, relies on a natural and holistic approach to physical and mental health. While not considered mainstream in the United States, Ayurvedic medicine is one of India’s traditional health care systems. 

The three Doshas are central to Ayurveda and are the basis of the practice’s personalized approach. Vata, Pitta and Kapha are derived from the five elements and represent the unique blend of physical, emotional and mental characteristics in every individual.

Steeping Ayurvedic Teas
Because our Ayurvedic Teas do not contain the “tea leaf” (camellia sinensis), they are caffeine-free herbal infusions. They can be enjoyed hot or iced. Many Ayurvedic practitioners recommend consuming the teas hot, as the heat helps activate the spices and botanicals. It’s also recommended that you steep Ayurvedic teas longer. Steep 1 Tablespoon of our Ayurvedic Teas in very hot water for 10 minutes. Our go-to tools for steeping Ayurvedic teas are the ForLife Press and the generously-sized ForLife Dew Cuptop Infuser.
