Choose your Dorje Wellness Tea According to your Ayurvedic Dosha
The Ayurvedic way of life is based on the fact that the world and everything in the world is made up of different combinations of the five basic elements - aakash (space), jala (water), prithvi (earth), teja (fire), and vayu (air)
Lifestyle, food and drink choices should be based on the Ayurvedic Dosha you belong to for the ultimate balance in life. At Dorje teas, we have curated teas according to the different Ayurvedic Doshas.
Understanding Ayurvedic Doshas or Categories
When the five elements are combined in different measures, the result is in three broad categories -
Known as Doshas in Ayurveda, these simply mean a collection of certain qualities in the basis of which you are categorised. These, humors, doshas or categories are responsible for a person’s physiological, mental and emotional health.

Vata consists mostly of the two elements air and space (also known as ether) and is generally described as cold, light, dry, rough, flowing, and spacious. Autumn represents vata for its cool, crisp days.
Those with the vata dosha are usually described as slim, energetic, and creative. They’re known for thinking outside the box but can become easily distracted. What’s more, their mood is highly dependent on the weather, people around them, and food they eat.
