Sorig Herbal Teas

Sorig herbal teas are based on traditional Tibetan principles of good health which seek to balance the 3 bodily humours:

- Wind (rLung pronounced Loong) which manifests the nature of the Air element, is responsible for physical and mental activities, respiration, expulsion of bodily wastes, speech and clarity of sense organs.

- Bile (mKhris-pa pronounced Tripa) which manifests the nature of Fire, controls metabolism, liver function, is responsible for hunger, thirst, digestion and assimilation, promotes bodily heat, gives luster to the skin and provides courage and determination.

- Phlegm (Bad-Kan pronounced Bae-kan) which manifests the nature of Earth and Water, provides lubrication to the body, connectivity to the joints and is responsible for the taste function and memory. It is cold in nature.

Good health, according to traditional Tibetan knowledge, involves a proper balance of all these three humours in our bodies. Sorig herbal teas are made using respected Himalayan plants chosen to help support equilibrium in the 3 humours of Loong, Tripa and Bae-Kan.

This tea is best taken in the morning at the start of a busy day because of its invigorating and refreshing qualities. Improper diet such as an excessive intake of sweet foods, refrigerated foods and beverages, untimely meals and fasting, over exposure to humidity, cold water and the elements combine to aggravate Baekan. The special combination of Tibetan herbs and spices used in this tea helps to promote warmth and aid digestion. This tea helps balance the disturbing effects on the digestion of unhealthy lifestyles and can be taken after meals or during cold days as well as in the morning.
