Expiration Date: Dec 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

What is Pitta?
In Ayurvedic principles, your Pitta is your fire principle. It is the energy needed for metabolism and heat in the body. Pitta regulates digestion, absorption and promotes balance in vitality and appetite. It is the alert, logical and intelligent aspect of the self.
A Pitta Imbalance can have some of the following indicators:
Generally feel warm, low tolerance to hot weather, prone to inflammatory conditions such as acne, rashes or heartburn, find yourself being overly competitive, aggressive or a perfectionist.
Balance with Pitta Tea
When Pitta is in balance, digestion and metabolism are strong. You feel alert, focused and at a comfortable body temperature. Our Ayurvedic Pitta tea can help restore balance to your Pitta energy with cooling flowers and mint.
Ayurveda (pronounced EYE-YER-VAY-DAH) in Sanskrit means "knowledge of life". It is the art of holistic living and the oldest (5000 years old) medicine system in practice today. Ayurvedic philosophy indicates that everything in the universe is made up of 5 elements; fire, air, water, earth and space. These elements are combined under 3 energies known as 'Doshas' (body constitutions). The three doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha and represent the "subtle energy" that combines and balances the characteristics of the elements it influences. This force has to often combine and balance seemingly contrary forces such as fire and water under pitta. Vata combines air and space. While kapha brings water and earth together. The principle of balancing the body is done by first determining your Ayurvedic constitution or dosha type. When we recognize this, we can begin to create balance for ourselves in our health and lifestyle.
Brew one teaspoon of leaves in twelve ounces of water for five minutes. Ideal as an iced tea.
Organic hibiscus flowers, 100% chamomile flowers, 100% organic peppermint, red rose flower petals.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I've been suffering from elevated body temperature for years, always being the person who's perspiring when everyone else is cold. I began drinking this tea as part of an overall program with an Ayurvedic practitioner to cool me down. Changing my eating/drinking habits, doing abhyanga with coconut oil, stopping birth control pills and drinking THIS tea have done the trick! I'm excited to be perspiring less, leaving the air conditioner off more and wearing sleeves again. This tea is EXCELLENT for excess pitta. I can't recommend it enough. And it tastes good to (it has mint, hibiscus and chamomile). What more could I ask??
This tastes a little strange to me when it's hot. I really think it would be tasty as an iced tea (which is says on the container) but I haven't tried it yet. It is a lovely blend of ingredients.
