A Little Bit About Tea + Chakra Tea Review

I’m a tea snob. There’s something about the process of boiling water, selecting tea, letting it steep ad enjoying the subtle nuances of flavor that speak to my slow-food loving inner yogini.


Camelia sinensis

All tea is actually from the same kind of plant, the Camellia sinensis. Whether it becomes white, oolong (my favorite!) or any other iteration depends on when it was harvested (i.e. younger vs. older leaves) and how it was treated after that (i.e. roasted vs. steamed).

Herbal teas are called tisanes as they contain no camellia leaves. I recently had a chance to work with Buddha Teas and try out all seven of their Chakra blends which fall into this category.

They call themselves “tea for the enlightened” and if you have a refined palate or are energetically sensitive, this couldn’t be more true. Each Chakra Tea is a blend of herbs, spices and flowers set with crystals for 24 hours before being put into bleach and staple free tea bags.

My favorite is the Root Chakra tea which is a blend of raspberry leaf, ashwagandha root, cloves, dandelion root, hibiscus and the essence of garnet.


All Chakra Teas are delicate and lightly floral (or fruity in the case of the root chakra blend). The herbs are soothing and tasty and there is no hint of “crystal essence” in the flavor. Tea is not strong or overwhelming.
