In 2016 I traveled to India for an Ayurveda internship and to immerse myself in the culture and beauty of the land. During my two week stay, each day, ritualistically tea time was observed. We gathered in an outdoor dining area at an Ayurvedic hospital that is nestled along the Periyar river.
Tea time in India was truly one of my favorite times of the day. It was a time for us to take rest, to connect, to share and to restore, and even as perfect strangers we shared a commonality. The love of tea, the desire to connect and the belief that nature can heal us physically, mentally and emotionally. and so we gathered day after day opening our hearts and our minds to the experience, and to each other. For me, that is what drinking tea is an experience, It is a ritual and an opportunity to take in nature's medicine. Whether you are seeking better sleep or a healthier digestion drinking tea is an act of self care and a natural way to support your health, mind, body, spirit and senses.
Exploring India awakened my spirituality, communing with the land and visiting the tea plantations inspired me to take my love for crafting and blending herbal teas (hobby) and build a tea company that is inspired by Ayurveda and essence of nature. Offering tea blends with a purpose inspired by Ayurvedic rituals along with personalized tea created with your body's wellness in mind.
Crafted with intention, Kevala tea uses only organic, herbs and spices from ethically grown, high quality, fair trade herbs that supports a tea company that is both ethical, and sustainable.
