Balance can be hard to find in today's fast-paced world. At Positivitea we believe in the three Ps - being PRESENT, believing everything is POSSIBLE and remaining POSITIVE. We also believe in the chakras, the energy centres of the body. For thousands of years they have been used as spiritual guidelines for wellbeing and are said to be directly connected to the health of the physical body and mind. When they are balanced you feel positive, healthy and happy. By harnessing the healing power of herbs each tea within the Positivitea range has been specifically blended to help the smooth running of the organs associated with a particular chakra or counteract the ailments associated with its imbalance. The collection includes seven chakra teas and a very special three chi chai. Retail price is £5.50 and the tea is available on subscription for £10 a month. Positivitea can be purchased online and at many yoga and fitness studios, spas, health food shops and cafes across the UK and department stores including Fenwick and Urban Outfitters.
