I started making and drinking yogi tea when I decided I needed to stop drinking diet sodas. I developed this easy yogi tea recipe to be able to make some speedy batches and cut down on prep time. This tea is a good tool when you are trying to transition to healthy eating.
Yogi tea was introduced to the US in the Kundalini yoga classes of Yogi Bhajan back in the 1960s. The spices in this mix have properties that are anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and improve digestion. I think it tastes great and the spiciness helped me get over missing my sodas.

You will need a 2-cup glass measure, a coffee filter, and a 2-liter pitcher.
I use Harney’s and Bigelow teas and spices from Penzeys. The key ingredients are black tea, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, cloves, and cardamom. I add turmeric when I have extra aches and pains from inflammation.
Harney’s hot cinnamon spice tea has black tea, cinnamon, orange peel, and cloves. Harney’s green tea with coconut has green tea, lemongrass, vanilla, coconut, and ginger. Bigelow’s lemon ginger probiotic tea has lemongrass, lemon, cinnamon, ginger, and probiotic bacillus coagulans GBI-30.
Another easy combo, using Celestial Seasonings: 1 bag each Jamminʻ Lemon Ginger, Bengal Spice, Cinnamon Cardamom Herbal, Ginger Turmeric Herbal. Brew in 2 cups water, add cold water to make 2 quarts.
