Tulsi Pitta Dosha Tea (An exotic blend of Chai spices)

Satya Teas, spices and herbs are your best allies in the kitchen and to your health. Our teas are a combination of organic flowers, leaves and barks. They are blended to please the needs of your constitution and to aid balance and well being. Herbal teas are best steeped with boiling water, for at least 5 minutes. There are a few exceptions, such as Chamomile, which you should only steep for 3 minutes or it will turn bitter. Generally speaking, you should cover your cup when steeping herbal teas so that those which have beneficial essential oils, such as peppermint, are not lost. Herbal teas generally make great iced teas, as you can create a concentrate and dilute it with ice and water.

How to make your cup of tea.
This tea only takes 3-4 minutes to infuse and to release a deep red color that is cooling, astringent and exotic enough to please the digestion of Pitta dosha.

Tulsi (holy basil), elderberries, orange peels, hibiscus, mint and pomegranate are the ingredients of this lovely blend. Use water at 90*C and 1 tsp of leaves per cup of water.
