Isha’s Ginger Coriander Coffee aka Sukku Coffee is an herbal infusion. It has a positive effect on your prana or life energies. If you’d like to eat and drink food that increases your energy, it’s best to avoid coffee and tea. That’s because they are stimulants that block your ability to receive energy.
The caffeine in coffee and tea is also habit-forming. There can be mild withdrawal symptoms (drowsiness and headaches) during the withdrawal phase. The reward for dropping these habits is once you get past that stage, you’ll be more in touch with your true energy state.
In the meantime, just because you need to give up the caffeine doesn’t mean you have to give up the enjoyable past time of sipping a hot beverage. Isha’s version of “coffee” is made from fresh ginger and dried coriander seeds. It’s sweetened with jaggery and is a very soothing way to start your day. Who needs a jolt when you can glide through life?
