Vata Pitta and Kapha tea

According to Ayurveda, the doshas are biological energies found throughout the human body and mind. They govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfillment. Normally balanced state of tridoshas is called health. Diet and lifestyle plays an important role for balancing your doshas (bodily humours). Inorganic tea and coffee is also cause of doshic imbalance.
