Hardly any ritual helps you find time for yourself as much as a break with a delicious cup of freshly brewed tea. The tradition of healing tea drinking has been cultivated all over the world for centuries and is not only good for your soul, but also for your body. In European Ayurveda®, the enjoyment of tea is of central importance, as Ayurvedic teas play an important role in detoxifying the body.
The history of tea goes back over 4,000 years and originated in China. Legend has it that the Chinese emperor Shen Nung accidentally discovered tea around 2,700 BC when parts of tea plants fell into boiling water. The emperor tasted the resulting tasty beverage and soon recognized its refreshing and invigorating properties. China was also the birthplace of the ritual tea ceremony. This tradition was later developed by the Japanese and spread over the centuries to all parts of the world.
Tea as a tradition
Each country today has its own tea traditions and varieties. In the United Kingdom, tea is drunk at five in the afternoon, while in Turkey, black tea is served in special glasses. In Morocco, people enjoy sweet mint tea and in Japan, the tea ceremony is celebrated as a spiritual practice.
In the Ayurvedic tradition, the enjoyment of tea has a special significance, as detoxification contributes significantly to a healthy body and thus a life in balance. Ayurvedic teas are mostly composed of herbs, spices and plant extracts that can promote health and balance the doshas. Unsweetened tea facilitates the elimination of toxins and waste products and promotes good health.
