Pitta represents the Fire principle in the body. Everything that enters the body must be "digested" and assimilated, from sensory perception to food for nourishment. In addition to the gastric fire, Pitta also includes the enzymes and amino acids that play a major role in metabolism, and even the neurotransmitters and neuropeptides involved in thinking. Some of the responsibilities of pitta are to regulate the body heat through the chemical transformation of food and to give a person appetite, vitality, and the capacity to learn and understand. A delicious combination of fragrant rose petals and refreshing spices, Pitta Dosha Tea is the perfect answer when you're feeling intense or frustrated. Drunk warm or cool, it helps cool down your mind, body and emotions
