The best sort of ayurveda tea for you is the one that is best for your body type (prakriti). If you do not have the foggiest idea about your body type, let’s find out which tea type is the most appropriate for you.
Herbal tea that has a calming effect on your body and mind
For those who have the dominant Vata nature, nervousness, anxiety, dry skin, low weight, constipation, bloating, etc. are quite common. Women with this body type feel jittery during the PMS.
A decent kind of ayurveda tea for these sort of people should have a mix of chamomile, rose, and ginger. Taking these ingredients together exclusively placates the Vata dosha. Chamomile is viewed as a nervine that calms the nerves and rose is another cooling and sweet soother for the nervous system. Both help you relax the mind and the body. Rose is especially helpful as it has a rejuvenating effect too. It tones your heart and warms up the body in the process.
Herbal tea that has a cooling effect on your body and mind
People who have a dominant Pitta nature, often have to suffer from acidity, joints inflammation, irritability, bad breath, etc. PMS brings a mild anger or even outrage in women. A general feeling of dissatisfaction, stress, and pessimism can be seen in such people. But don’t worry for the right cup of tea can help you overcome these for sure.
Your ideal ayurveda tea type has herbs like gotu kola, rose, skullcap, and cardamom. Gotu kola and the skullcap herbs taken as tea induce a remarkable soothing effect. They calm down the sensory organs and cool the liver. The ideal way to have some tea is to make yourself home, have a natural surrounding such as your home garden or a place full of greenery. As you sip the tea, feel the taste, notice the flavors while you imbibe the nature around you. In short, be in the moment.
Herbal tea that has a stimulating effect on your body and mind
The third prakriti is the kapha type. According to Ayurveda, it makes you obese, foggy, lethargic, sentimental, and possessive. This type of people may have cough problems, sluggish bowel movements, and relatively thicker white coat over the tongue. For women, PMS may cause a feeling of nostalgia and misery, which can be a challenge in itself when it comes to the sense of wellbeing.
For people with Kapha prakriti, the tea should be exceptionally fortifying. Include tulsi, the holy basil, with rose and some amount of cinnamon. Take this combination of green ayurvedic tea in a quiet place and reflect about things that you are going to do after you are done having the tea. For this nature type, physical exercises, walks, and even mental exercises are absolutely fruitful. These activities help channel the prana, the life force, to move more swiftly through the mind, body, and soul. Or else the vitality becomes too rigid to move through the entire physiology, making the individual tired, low on energy, and puzzled. Yoga and meditation can be equally helpful.
