We are excited to share our new tea – Golden Spirit Tea with you, which brings together many of the medicinal plants used in Ayurveda and naturally grown in the fertile Sri Lankan soil. It’s earthy and refreshing notes bring a sense of grounding and purpose to each sip, which is why we have affectionately named this our Spirit Tea. The blend contains soursop, orange peel, tulsi (holy basil), moringa, turmeric and black pepper, let us introduce these in more detail.
Our Spirit Tea includes one of our favourite adaptogens – Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, the ‘Incomparable One’ and the ‘Queen of Herbs’. Tulsi has been documented in various medical studies to portray the characteristics of a potent adaptogen, helping the body deal with stress and to promote homeostasis. In Ayurveda this herb is known as an ‘elixir of life’ and is said to prevent disease, promote good health, wellbeing and longevity. Tulsi also has been shown in animal studies to have anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and nootropic properties to promote health and wellbeing. Also, it is said that the regular consumption of tulsi tea is similar to daily yoga practice as they both promote clarity of thought and a relaxed disposition.
This tea also includes Moringa oleifera leaves, which are rich in antioxidants and help to control blood glucose levels. The moringa plant is nutrient dense, and is known to be particularly rich in potassium, calcium and vitamins A and D.
Soursop, also known as Graviola, is the fruit of the tropically grown Annona muricata, hailed as being anti-microbial, anti-fungal and also antioxidant. Alongside these powerful ingredients, it also contains orange peel (rich in flavonoids and according to Ayurveda helps to improve digestion and speed metabolism), anti-inflammatory turmeric and lastly black pepper - to assist in boosting the absorption and bioavailability of these health promoting compounds.
All of the ingredients are grown organically in forest gardens in Sri Lanka according to our Wunder growing policy. This purposefully crafted blend is to be consumed with purpose, set your intention and savour the time for yourself.
