ayurvedic notes
Along with many ancient traditions, Grapes are the chosen fruit in Ayurveda. They nourish the blood plasma (rasa) and cool the blood's fire (rakta). Grape refreshes and rejuvenates (called a "rasayana" or tonic in Ayurveda). Texture-wise, grapes have a snappy, crunchy exterior and soft flesh inside. Although sweet taste prevails endowing grapes with a gentle laxative effect, they are also slightly astringent, toning the musculature of the bowels.

Turmeric invigorates and cleans the blood. The soft coolness of the grape juice balances the intensity of turmeric. Cardamom and ginger helps digest food stuck in the upper digestive tract, clearing the stomach creating a feeling of lightness. Altogether, Grape Juice Chai is a sweet, refreshing tonic and cleanser.
Herbal juices nourish as they heal. Sweet spices add stimulation to the rejuvenating fruits of the vine. This simple recipe was inspired by Dr. Vasant Lad's "The Textbook of Ayurveda".

Mash fresh ginger with a mortar and pestle. Mix ginger, organic grape juice, and the other spices together in a glass. For best results brew twenty minutes at room temperature. Add 1/8tsp ashwagandha or 1/2 tsp amalaki for a more powerful tonifying and rejuvenating effect.

This sounds fantastic! I'm having a hard time finding some of the herbs your recipes call for. Would you recommend buying them on-line? Would you direct me to a reputable source? I am loving the recipes I've tried so far and can't wait to add some new to me herbs and spices. Thank you!

Fabulous! I warmed it up a bit since it was a little chilly in the office and it's even better warm! This is my new apple cider.

Many of the spices can be found at middle eastern and south Asian grocery stores (often small shops). You can also order these spices on joyfulbelly using this link, as well as on other websites. Our spices are medicinal herb grade - so they may be tastier than what you can find locally.
Grape juice is usually too sweet for me, but I know how good it is for you. This recipe added the right amount of spice to it.
