Vīrya, ‘energy’, is a synergy of adaptogenic herbs for vitality that regulates the three doṣa, protects agni and stimulates ojas. Among these herbs, some known as “rasāyana”, strengthen the balance and stability of ojas: “the essence of the seven dāthu”. Ojas is a substance guaranteeing body-mind integrity that protects and balances us. In addition, Virya stimulates ‘Agni’ through the Trikatu (ginger, long pepper, black pepper). This allows you to better assimilate your food bowl and the infusion itself.
- 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.
