Original Yogi Tea Recipe

Original Yogi Tea Recipe:

1 Gallon Water

1 TBSP cloves

2 TBSP whole green cardamon pods (crack with a rolling pin before boiling)

1-2 TBSP whole black peppercorns (1 if you don’t like spice)

1 Lg finger of fresh ginger root, thinly sliced (about 3-4 in in length)

5 sticks cinnamon (try to get real Ceylon Cinnamon if possible)

1 teabag, Black Tea

*Optional: Milk and Honey to taste

  • Bring water to boil.

  • Add all spices except black tea bag.

  • Boil 30 -45 min. Longer is stronger.

  • Finally, add black tea bag and boil another 5 min (less time, if sensitive to caffeine). **The black tea is added last because it's said to enhance the effect of the other spices. Also the tannins help assimilate the spices into the body.

  • If adding milk & honey, add to individual cups or a small batch. That way you can store the raw tea in the fridge and prepare with milk and honey as you go.

Leave the raw tea on the stove on the lowest heat and enjoy all day.

**Milk helps to ease the shock of the spiciness on the stomach and intestines so drink with milk if you’re sensitive.

When the tea seems ready, you can ladle it into mugs and let it cool. 

The leftover spices are still good and you can boil them a second time for another yield. I like to put the leftover spices in a container in the freezer until I'm ready to make a second batch.
