Yoga Teas

Simpson and Vail just released a new line of "Yoga Teas". Each one focuses on a different chacra. Example:

The Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) is located in the center of forehead and is symbolized by the two-petal lotus flower and the color indigo. It is in this sight center that we find the home of the part of our consciousness that absorbs the knowledge of the outer world and externalizes the thoughts of our inner world. An open and balanced Third Eye Chakra will allow us to trust our intuition, help us to focus and allow us to see an unobstructed view of reality. This insightful herbal blend brews to a light golden color with a heady aroma and a light floral taste with the pronounced flavor of lavender and rosemary. Connect to this energy center through meditation or guided visualization. Suggested yoga poses and further information on this chakra are included inside the box.

It's a cool idea, but I have to wonder how long it will take before Yogi Tea's lawyers decide to skip their morning Pranayama and file suit.

The really funny part? Almost none of these products contain any actual tea. They're almost all tisanes.
