Pramati, ‘protection’, is a synergy of herbs that prevents congestion of the srotas. It clears the nāḍī and increases heat in the dhātu to boost metabolism and immunity. This infusion reduces kapha to leave vāta free in its movements and increases agni in the seven dhātus. This infusion should be consumed at the first chill of autumn to prepare for winter. Avoid consuming this infusion from May to October, unless you wish to decrease kapha.
Pramati = to protect in Sanskrit
- 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“, Pramati is a synergy of plants that prevents winter congestions. This infusion controls Kapha to leave Vāta free in his movements. Pitta and to a lesser extent Vāta can be vitiated if this infusion is consumed outside the winter season.

People of “Kapha nature” will have to be more careful about following preventive winter regimens. This does not mean that an “anti-Kapha” regime must be adopted.
Kapha must be under control, Vāta watched and Agni satisfied!
Dinner should be served early, sleep early and rise early.
Avoid fasting (except in special cases) as well as raw vegetables in large quantities.
Avoid any form of detox unless you are well guided.
