Top 5 Favourite Yogi Teas

Updated on October 7, 2014

Yogi Teas Taste Good And Are Good For You

The Yogi Tea Company has been around since 1984 but their history harks back to 1969 when Yogi Bhajan started teaching holistic living and yoga in America. Yogi Bhajan served a specially spiced tea which his students affectionately called Yogi Tea.

Contained within the tea were 5 spices traditionally used Ayurvedic spices: cardamom seed, cinnamon bark, clove bud, ginger root and black pepper. Loose packages of Yogi Bhajan's "Yogi Tea" began appearing in health food shops in Southern California after the Yogi Tea Company was formed in 1984. Demand increased from these humble beginnings, and today the Yogi Tea Company distributes around 60 different flavours of tea around the world.

Nearly every blend today is based around the original 5 Ayurvedic Spices and continues in the original purpose of Yogi Bhajan's tea: To provide a drink that tastes good and is good for you.

Yogi Principles

The people at Yogi tea believe that tasting great is an essential component of any tea. If what they make doesn't taste great and leave you feeling great, they won't make it.

Before blending and creating they think. How will this recipe work with body and mind? How will the ingedients blend together?

Yogi Tea believes that health can be found in natre. They work with what nature has already offered, rather than trying to concoct it in a laboratory. They don't have labs, they have kitchens.

Different creative combinations can optimise what nature has to offer. For instance, goji berries work will with ginger to produce a fresh and innovative taste, as well as a remarkable level of energy.

Whenever possible they work with Whole ingredients, not parts. They don't add Vitamin C, they use Indian Gooseberry which is naturally high in Vitamin C. You just have to read the ingredient list on the side of any box to know how true this statement is.
