Kala Pushpa is a synergy of herbs that balances the “black flowers”, i.e. a female cycle that is too discreet and has lost its rhythm. It should be consumed over a long period of time and not just at the time of menstruation. This formula controls vāta by regulating and releasing it in its apāna form. Apāna is the ‘downward’ manifestation of vāta which according to the Āyurveda controls menstruation, defecation and urination among other things. This tea also balances kapha doṣa and promotes the expulsion of pitta in its mala (waste) form.

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“, Kala Pushpa is a synergy of plants that balances the “black flowers”: a lessened feminine cycle which has lost its rhythm and may be troublesome. This concoction controls Vāta by regulating it in its Apāna form. Apāna is that “downward” force which according to Ayurveda controls menstruation, defecation, urination etc. This herbal tea balances Kapha dosha and promotes the expulsion of Pitta in its Mala (waste) form.

“I am 29 years old and have had very irregular periods for the past 3 years. I drink 1 cup of KALA PUSHPA tea every evening before going to bed and I am very much happy with the results. Within a month and a half, I could literally feel a difference in my mood fluctuations that drastically reduced. And my periods got much more regularized from 15 days once to 27-28 days once within 2 months. It has improved my health to a great extend, I feel less tired, more at peace regarding my menstrual cycles.
Thanks a lot for the wonderful teas you propose.”
