Summer Sattvic Foods—Rose Hibiscus Tea
Ready to feel light, grounded, and peaceful in body and mind? We’ve got three days of foods and recipes to get you started. Join us as Myra Lewin of Hale Pule Ayurveda shares from her immense knowledge of Sattvic foods, and teaches us a few tips along the way!
Sattvic foods are a wonderful way to counteract the intensity of summertime. The heat from the summer sun and the surge of energy used during summer activities like swimming, hiking, and traveling, though they may be enjoyable, can easily cause imbalances in your body and mind.
Sattvic foods are not only refreshing at this time of year, they are also rejuvenating—leaving you feeling light, energized, and ready for your next summer adventure!
There's nothing better than sipping a cool hibiscus tea on a sunny day. Unless, it also contains rose! Both are energitically cooling, something we can all benefit from at this time of year. The thing I love most about Myra's tea inspiration is that her recipe is totally open—and easy! Simply, a handful of rose petals and a handful of hibiscus and—poof! A big pot of tea to sip all day long. Occasionally, I like to add other herbs, too. A few sprigs of mint can increase the cooling effect. What would you add to this mix to make a cooling tea that you would drink all day?
