Although not one for yoga or meditation, to which this blend is suited, I do like to relax – so I have found myself a quiet corner to give Diksha-T’s second blend a try – Spiritual Awakening.
I open the pack, and instantly I get hit with an amazing fragrance – jasmine, lavender, and rose being the dominant notes. Being a big fan of lavender tea, I can’t wait to brew-up and give this a try – my taste buds are already tingling from the smell.
Upon pouring out the blend from the pack, it’s clear to see where Diksha-T are positioned with regards to premium, whole-leaf tea – right at the top! This blend has almost fully-intact chamomile and calendula flowers, and I know I’m in for a real treat just from the sight of it.
When the hot water hits, instantly the herbs in this blend start to come into play – coriander and tulsi become apparent and give the fragrance a beautiful and welcome twist.
Taking my first sip I can honestly say this is one of the most delightfully complex herbal/flower based teas I’ve ever tried. You try to put your finger on which flavours dominate, but none do – all of the cleverly-blended ingredients come together to create a single, unique flavour that I find hard to describe or liken-to in words.
What I can say is that this tea delivers what it says – a relaxing, calming experience – and a delicious floral/herbal aftertaste that lingers on long after you’ve enjoyed your brew.
Here’s what Diksha-T say about this blend:
Spiritual Awakening blend is designed to cleanse your chakras and to facilitate activation of kundalini energy for a heightened meditation experience. The antioxidant, immunogenic and calming properties of this tea are in the perfect balance. While providing protection for your divine essence, the selected herbs trigger and nourish each chakra, awakening the spiritual energy that dwells within you. Drink it before and after meditation, yoga or another spiritual practice.
This particular tea blend contains a very powerful ayurvedic herb Tulsi know as the Holy Basil which is worshipped in India and contains many health benefits. The other constituents are flowery herbs that represent different chakras. Hibiscus, calendula, chamomile encompass the 3 lower chakras, while rose, agrimony, coriander, lavender and jasmine address the 4 upper chakras. This blend is very potent upon ingestion, but its aroma is equally powerful, leaving a divine scent in the air for many hours. Additionally, each tea bag of Spiritual Awakening is thoughtfully handcrafted, powered with Reiki energy, and gifted with deeksha.
Clearly crafted with knowledge, care, and attention, we think this is one of the best floral teas around. Well done Diksha-T!
