Hima Paka is a synergy of herbs that promotes appetite and digestion for people with sensitive intestines.
It reduces pitta while promoting a balanced “Agni” (digestive fire). Thus it is an aperitif, and it is best to take Hima Paka before meals, or during the day, whereas Tikshna Paka should be taken just after meals to promote a weak digestive fire. Furthermore, Hima Paka expels Āma from the digestive system.
Sanskrit: Hima = snow; Paka = transformation
- Our freshness envelope, despite resembling plastic, is made from cellulose therefore compostable.
- Our teabags and string are also compostable.
- Our tag is made from recyclable PEFC™ paper.
Note: we sell the majority of our infusions only in tea bags and not in bulk. The difference in density of the ingredients would make the heavier ones fall to the bottom of the container. Thus, the mixture would lose its homogeneity and the medicinal proportions would not be preserved.
Based on the principles of Ayurvedic Herbalism or “Dravya Guṇa“, Hima Paka is a plant synergy that promotes appetite and digestion of people with a sensitive stomach/intestine. This mixture soothes irritations (including acidity) and quenches thirst, it decreases Pitta and stimulates Agni, the digestive fire, at the same time.

“I am very satisfied with your different products. I used to have serious digestion problems and had a very sensitive intestine. I drank Hima Paka every night before going to bed, and slowly I began to see a difference in myself within a month. Now it has been almost 4 months that I drink regularly this tea and I am less scared about my intestinal sensitivity and I eat everything that I like!”
