Tea has always been more than just a beverage. Throughout history, it has been a ritual, a healer, and a source of comfort. Among the many teas that have captured the hearts and palates of enthusiasts worldwide, the Tranquility Blend Tea stands out, especially for those in pursuit of relaxation and inner peace. This tea finds its roots in the ancient practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), being inspired by the time-honored formula known as Gui Pi Tang.
A Brief Overview of Gui Pi Tang
Gui Pi Tang, often translated as "Restore the Spleen Decoction," is a classical herbal formula in TCM. For centuries, it has been used to address a variety of ailments, primarily focusing on supporting the spleen and heart, which in TCM theory, play a significant role in emotional health, blood production, and energy. Made up of a unique combination of herbs, Gui Pi Tang aims to restore the body's balance and replenish the vital energy known as "Qi". It's no wonder that a tea inspired by such a potent formula promises tranquility and restoration.
