Make your own Spicy Yogi Tea

Make your own Spicy Yogi Tea

Y U M! Just tried our first self-made spicy “Yogi tea”, and we are amazed! So refreshing and revitalising. We made a more delicate version using our beloved Organic Darjeeling Black Tea - Second Flush and lots of fresh organic spices.

Yogi tea has been introduced by Yogi Bhajan in the late 1960s, a pioneer of holistic yogic lifestyle, serving his students an aromatic tea blend using Ayurvedic spices (cardamom, ginger, pepper, cinnamon) which have incredible health benefits. Yogi tea has become very popular and is also known as Chai tea. Chai originates in India where it’s also known as ‘masala chai’ (chai translated means tea), a blend of spices with lots of milk and traditionally sweetened with honey.

Many Yoga studios now offer tea to their students after class. When you emerge glowing and peaceful from your Savasana, the last thing you want is to get crushed by the noise and stress outside the studio. A warm cup of lovely smelling tea is a great way to slowly transition back into the outside world.

May it be at the Yoga studio or at home, depending on the time of day, you can choose different types of tea. If it is earlier in the day, make a nice spicy Yogi tea because it’s so invigorating and stimulating. For later in the day, it might be something more calming or grounding such as jasmine, lavender or chamomile. Simply brew a pot of tea and add the herbs you like.

Both Yoga and tea nurture body and mind. It’s all about staying healthy plus it creates an environment for social bonding with other Yogis or health enthusiasts after a nice Yoga class. Sit back, relax and have a chat.

Try your own Yogi tea! Here’s the recipe of our version, makes a pot:

  • 500ml of water
  • 6 whole gloves
  • 8 whole green cardamom pots, cracked
  • 8 whole black peppercorns
  • 4 slices fresh ginger roots
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 2 tsp of Organic Darjeeling Black Tea - Second Flush
  • 1 cup of fresh milk
  • optional: some drops of honey

Bring the water to boil, gently add the spices, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the Darjeeling black tea to sit for 3 minutes (or longer for a stronger taste). Then add the milk and bring to a boil. As soon as it starts boiling, remove from the heat and strain into a tea pot. If you’re a sweetie, add some honey.
