We've received many requests for a line of Ayurvedic Teas. Usually herbal blends, these are combinations of herbs and spices based on centuries-old Sanskrit and eastern traditions. It strives for a balance of the five great elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. Each blend stresses a different combination of influences. We've already begun sampling and hope to include a few in our Tea Catalogue when we re-open. Yesterday, we gave high marks to "Pitta (Fire)" - a combination of flowers, saffron, cardamom, hibiscus, mint, tulsi and lemon, among other ingredients. Words used to describe this were "delicious", "warming" and "smooth".
