Traditional detox teas in Ayurvedic practices usually differ from western ideas about tea. The blends are made of what we would consider herbs and spices. The Ayurvedic approach encourages the body to release toxins and increase digestive power through 6 specific flavors—all encompassed in the following blends.

In the daytime mix, green tea is a fantastic addition for those who are fasting or attempting to utilize fat for energy. For those who are sensitive to caffeine, there is holy basil, also known as Tulsi tea. Tulsi has stress relieving and immune supporting properties that complement the detox blend brilliantly.

The bedtime mix cools and soothes the digestive system and encourages the release of heat from inflamed areas of the body. This blend allows for the process of detoxification to gently continue while the body renews and restores overnight.

Ayurvedic Detox Tea for Daytime

Makes one day of tea, about 5 cups

1 Tbsp whole coriander seed
1 Tbsp whole cumin seed
1 Tbsp whole fennel seed
1 Tbsp cinnamon chips
¼ C loose leaf green tea or Tulsi tea

Place in a jar and shake to mix. To prepare, place 1 level Tbsp of mix and 5 cups of water in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 more minutes. Strain tea into thermos (or refrigerate) and sip throughout the day.
