What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a traditional system of folk medicine that originated in India thousands of years ago. It builds on the belief that health and well-being depend on a delicate balance between body, mind and spirit. At this, the earliest written records of Ayurvedic principles and practices are to be found in the Vedas, a collection of ancient texts from pre-Christian times. The “Charaka Samhita” and Sushruta Samhita“, considered to be the basic texts of Ayurveda, were written around 600 or 400 BC. Since then, Ayurveda has been continuously practiced and developed in India. At the same time, it  has also influenced the development of traditional medicine systems in other parts of the world. Accordingly, Ayurveda is one of the oldest folk medicine teachings and is still widely used in modern times.

What is Ayurvedic Teas?

Ayurvedic teas are a form of herbal tea blends finding use in Ayurveda to promote physical and mental balance. These teas are made from a combination of herbs, spices and other natural ingredients whose medicinal properties are believed to balance the doshas and contribute to overall health and wellness. In addition, the individual herbal formulations in Ayurveda also serve the targeted treatment of health issues such as digestion, stress or sleep. At this, Ayurvedic teas are generally considered safe and beneficial to health. Still, it’s always best to consult a doctor before trying new herbs and compounds. This especially applies to people with known health problems such as high blood pressure.

The 3 “Doshas” in Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, the doshas are the three basic principles that govern the functioning of the body and mind. They are known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

  • Vata is associated with the element of air – all that is cold, dry and light. In the Ayurvedic perspective, it regulates movement, breathing, the circulatory system and the nervous system. Also, it allegedly is responsible for mental processes such as creativity and communication.
  • Pitta belongs to the elements of fire and water – all that is hot, wet and flammable. According to Ayurvedic teachings, it regulates metabolism and digestion. It is also said to be responsible for mental processes such as intelligence and courage.
  • Kapha corresponds to the elements of earth and water – all that is cold, wet and heavy. Accordingly, it determines structure and stability. In addition to bodily functions such as lubrication and moisture, it supposedly is also responsible for mental processes such as memory and compassion.

According to Ayurvedic beliefs, every person has an individual balance of these doshas. In this perspective, imbalances in the doshas can lead to health problems and symptoms. Accordingly, Ayurvedic treatments aim to restore the balance between the doshas. A variety of methods such as diet, lifestyle changes, and herbal remedies, including Ayurvedic teas, can help with this.

The Pitta Dosha in the Ayurvedic System

Pitta is one of the three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha – in Ayurvedic folk medicine. At this, each dosha represents a combination of the five universal elements of the Ayurvedic world view: ether, air, fire, water and earth. Pitta belongs to the elements fire and water and is associated with warmth, metabolism and transformation qualities. Correspondingly, Pitta people are said to have strong digestion and metabolism and tend to be fiery, ambitious and intelligent. While ambition promotes focus and motivation, an unbalanced Pitta can promote increased irritability, pedantry, and angry reactions. The aim of the Pitta balance is therefore both physical and mental cooling. Practices such as yoga, meditation and a cooling diet – or even enjoying Pitta tea – can prove to be beneficial for both.
