A small group of students in Southern California have just finished their yoga class. They are milling around, chatting and sipping an aromatic spiced tea prepared for them by their yoga teacher, Yogi Bhajan, an inspiring teacher of holistic living who came from India to the West in 1969. Included in the spiced tea recipe were five traditional Ayurvedic spices: cardamom seed, cinnamon bark, clove bud, ginger root and black pepper. Soon, the students began making the tea on their own, and that’s where the story of Yogi Tea begins.
In 1984, this grassroots endeavor blossomed into the Yogi Tea Company. Packages of the dried spices began to appear in natural food stores throughout Southern California and in Europe. By 1986, Yogi Tea was distributed nationwide in the United States in three flavours. As demand increased the spices were more finely ground, packaged and sealed into individual tea bags.
Yogi Tea has continued to expand and evolve their tea offerings to address specific needs by creating specialized herbal formulas, blended for both flavor and purpose. Today, Yogi Tea has over sixty tea blends, many of which are created using the five original Yogi spices.
Buy Organics Online carries a variety of Yogi Tea’s most popular tea blends. Following are descriptions of three blends that are not only delightful in flavour but which address specific common health concerns.
