It is said that against every evil there is a herb. In fact, nature has gifted us with an abundance of herbs and medicinal plants. For relief in case of pain, calming in case of nervousness or refreshment in case of thirst as well as warmth in case of frosty days. But tea drinking is also important as a ritual in various cultures. It gives structure to the day, serves to slow down, rest and bring people together. You're more likely to have good conversations over a cup of tea than arguments. Often the tea has to steep, so that its full flavor can unfold. Your stress level will drop almost automatically. And the right Ayurvedic tea for your Dosha will additionally provide even more harmony.
"Tea awakens the good spirit and wise thoughts. It refreshes the mind. If you are depressed, tea will cheer you up." (Shen Nung)

Typical of the fire element, Pitta comes out especially in summer. The characteristics are hot and oily.
