Make your own yogi tea
You can buy Yogi Tea prepackaged, loose or in tea bags, and even in different flavors, but for the most quintessential, excellent, best experience of yogi tea, put together your own herbs and make the tea from scratch! Below is the original recipe just like the Indian people do. Dimensions may vary according to your taste. Be careful not to put too many cloves or cinnamon sticks in it.
Measurements can vary according to your taste. Be careful not to put in too many cloves or cinnamon sticks.
To 3 gts. of boiling water add: 20 whole cloves, see them dance!
20 whole green cardamom pods (you can open them up)
20 whole black peppercorns
5 sticks of cinnamon
Continue boiling for 15-20 minutes,
then add 1/4 teaspoon of any black tea.
After one or two minutes add:
1/2 cup cold milk per cup of the remaining liquid
When it returns to the boiling point, remove it immediately from heat. (Watch closely so it doesn't boil over.) Strain and serve with honey to taste, if desired. The black pepper is a blood purifier, the cardamom is for the colon, the cloves for the nervous system, and the cinnamon for the bones. The milk aids in the easy assimilation of the spices and avoids irritation to the colon. The black tea acts as an alloy for all of the ingredients, achieving a new chemical structure that makes the tea a healthy as well as a delicious drink. Silcew of the fresh ginger root may also be included, especially when you are suffering from a cold, recovering from the flu, or just want extra energy.
