Spiced Tulsi Rose Tea - 2 oz
Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum var. kapoor): Also referred to as "Holy Basil", Tulsi is named for a Hindu goddess and roughly translates to "that which is incomparable". It is a magically sweet and sacred adaptogen in Ayurveda that assists in modulating the effects of stress while lowering inflammatory load. As a member of the basil family, tulsi is rich in terpenes, such as eugenol, and antioxidant-rich polyphenols. The Kapoor variety is particularly saturated with rosmarinic acid, a strong antioxidant, antibacterial, and inflammation-reducing constituent.
Rose (Rosa canina): A floral nervine euphoriant that is well indicated for energetic and emotional imbalances. Rose offers itself as a powerful ally for softening and opening the heart, while also helping us to create healthy relational boundaries. Rose has a long tradition for grief and anxiety support, and is also a powerful astringent and anti-aging agent making it a common ingredient in skincare formulas.
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum): A familiar spice that offers a gently warming energy and sweetly pungent flavor. Research has shown Cinnamon's effectiveness in modulating blood glucose levels and reducing blood lipids like LDL, as well as overall cholesterol. Cinnamon also presents as a circulatory stimulant and warming carminative by stimulating both cardiovascular flow and digestive fire.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale): Long associated as a firey tonic, ginger root has a characteristic pungent heat that is indicated for gastrointestinal upsets, poor circulation, and immune support. Ginger has a stimulating and moving energy and while brings warmth to the heartspace.
Licorice (Glycrrhiza glabra): Characteristically sweet, Licorice root is a deeply nourishing herb that is widely used in Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. Licorice is a powerful adaptogen, antiviral, and demulcent plant, and is often reached for in times of chronic inflammation, adrenal dysregulation, and general deficiency. *Note: Long-term use of licorice may increase blood pressure in those with hypertension. Please consult your physician if you have high blood pressure.*
Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum): A distinct aromatic that harmonizes and contributes even deeper flavor profiles. In Ayurveda, Cardamom is considered a tridoshic plant and balancing to all constitutions. It is commonly sought for building digestive fire, alleviating spasm and cough, reducing intestinal pain, and moving Qi.
