Yogi Tea Recipe
Yoga, Tea, And Extra Energy
In addition to the extra energy from the hot drink, you also get the medicinal substances from the dried tea plant. This forms the oriental basis of a healthy lifestyle. In Western society we are becoming more and more aware of our health and Yoga has become a lifestyle. A lifestyle in which the care of body and mind is central. For example, it is important that you take enough rest, meditate, practice yoga poses, pay attention to your breathing, and have healthy eating and drinking habits.
Drinking a cup of delicious tea fits in nicely with this. You can drink tea anytime and anywhere, but it tastes extra good after a yoga class. Drinking after a yoga class is important to restore your fluid levels and to flush out released waste. That is why there is always a cup of tea ready for you after a yoga class. Yoga and tea, a warm combination!
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.
Snap, crackle, and pop are not what you want to hear when you bend your knees. Turmeric, that little orange spice, help make the bones and joints flexible. And it doesn't take much. Here's a recipe to serve that very purpose:
1/8 teaspoons turmeric
3 cardamom pods (optional)
1/4 cup water (approx)
Simmer 5 to 7 minutes, then add:
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons almond oil (cold-pressed)
Bring just up to the boiling point, do not boil!
If desired, add sweetener (honey or maple syrup) to taste. You can also make it frothy by putting it in the blender, using the lowest setting. Drink warm. It's a great bedtime drink.
Good for everyone! Men, women, and children. Particularly useful for women to drink for energy during the menstrual period. Slice up about one finger length of ginger root (available in the produce section of grocery stores) and boil in about 1 quart of water for approximately 10 minutes. You don't even have to peel the ginger. Strain, sweeten to taste (or not) add milk (or not), and drink hot. Use honey or maple syrup. anything but white sugar! That would defeat the whole purpose of the ginger tea. Ginger root supplies added energy to the nerve centers in the spine.
