THE STORY OF AYURVEDIC TOTAL BODY
Ayurveda. If it's good enough for Rocky Balboa, it's good enough for us. We kid, but in truth, Sylvester Stallone is a reported fan of the traditional medicine of India. Apparently it was introduced to him on a movie set in 2009 by an Indian co-star. What's more, the Italian Stallion was so taken by the holistic effects of this all-natural, non-traditional medicine that since that time he's been spreading the word far and wide to many of his famous Hollywood neighbors. And why not? In a city that has seen its fair share of dietary and medicinal fads, Ayurveda is rooted in beliefs that trace their origins back thousands of years on the Indian Sub-continent.
The basic principles of Ayurveda can be found in its name, which in Sanskrit means "longevity" (ayus) and science (veda). Overall, balance within the body is emphasized through moderation of such things as sleep, sexual activity, medicine and last but not least, food. The last, food is an important feature in Ayurvedic practice and as such, all herbs and plants are purported to have various uses and characters.
In order to do our part for Hollywood and everyone else, we're pleased to offer this stunning blend of herbs and flowers blended to provide a sense of overall comfort and wellbeing to the entire body. So.what's in it and why?
. Peppermint and Spearmint for their relaxing qualities . Ginger for a spicy layer of vitality
. Osmanthus and Hibiscus for a calming aroma . Rosehip for a floral boost
If that doesn't sound like something that's good for mind, body and spirit, we don't know what is.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a boil for 3-7 minutes.
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.
NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves. Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion. Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
