Yogi Tea’s story began more than 40 years ago with a wonderfully aromatic spice tea, the tea that is known today as YOGI TEA® Classic (recipe below).
Their approach is based on the Indian philosophy of Ayurveda the core of which recommends awareness and balance in every action. Ever since Yogi Tea was founded, it’s been focused on promoting an holistic and Ayurvedic lifestyle - a life of spiritual balance and well-being.
“We’re more than just tea. We strive to be attentive and fair with the people around us. We want to inspire them to feel good, to be mindful of themselves and to do good things – true to our motto: “Feel good, Be good, do good”.
This shines through in their teabag tab quotes. On each teabag is a tab to help to physically keep the teabag in place, but ultimately to inspire and bring happiness to its user.
Check out their delicious and original spice tea recipe below. This recipe laid the foundation for the unique variety of delicious Ayurvedic herb and spice tea blends that appeal equally to our mind and spirit.
10 ounces of water (about 1 1/3 cups)
3 whole cloves
4 whole green cracked cardamom pods
4 whole black peppercorns
2 slices fresh ginger root
½ stick cinnamon
¼ teaspoon black tea
½ cup milk or milk substitute
Using a large pot, bring water to boiling and carefully add spices. Cover and boil 15 to 20 minutes, then add black tea. Let sit for 3-5 minutes, then add the milk and return to a boil. Upon reaching a boil, carefully remove from heat and strain. If desired, add honey for sweetness.
Makes one 8 ounce serving.
