It’s time for tea

For the best Yogi tea in the world!

The benefits of yogi tea are vast – it’s invigorating yet relaxing, and a great coffee substitute. The spices used in this tea are said to have the following properties:

  • Black peppercorns are blood purifier
  • Cardamom pods aid digestion
  • Cloves strenghteh the nervous system
  • Ginger root is healing for colds and flu, and increases energy

In yogi tea, the milk (dairy or soy) helps in the easy assimilation of the spices. A pinch of black tea acts as an alloy for all the ingredients, creating just the right chemical balance, with less caffeine than decaffeinated tea.
