“Wherever Kundalini yogis are gathered, you will most likely notice an intriguing and inviting aroma – the aroma of Yogi Tea®,” according to the organization’s nations’ foundation, 3ho.org.
This recipe is based on the knowledge of Ayurveda, as Yogi Tea was created to deliver a healthful benefit to the body and a delicious flavor to delight the spirit.
The magic comes from: A blend of clove, cardamom pod, cinnamon, ginger root and black pepper, which makes up this richly spiced tea that helps warm the body and stimulate digestion. A hint of black tea supports energy and milk is added to complement the spices. (Soy or other milk substitutes may be used.)
Here’s what you’ll need to make a cup:
- 10 ounces of water (about 1 1/3 cups)
- 3 whole cloves
- 4 whole green cardamom pods, cracked
- 4 whole black peppercorns
- ½ stick cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon black tea
- ½ cup milk
- 2 slices fresh ginger root
Bring water to a boil and add spices. Cover and boil 15 to 20 minutes, then add black tea. Let sit for a few minutes, then add the milk and return to a boil. Don’t let it boil over. When it reaches a boil, remove immediately from heat, strain, and sweeten with honey, if desired.
