What is Yogi Tea?

Yogi tea is a delightful blend of spices, herbs, and tea leaves that originates from the ancient Ayurvedic tradition. It is known for its rich and complex flavor profile, combining notes of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, and black tea. Yogi tea is not just a beverage; it's a sensory experience that awakens the senses and provides numerous health benefits.


To make traditional Yogi tea, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 cups of water
  • 4 cups of milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 8 black tea bags
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 8 cloves
  • 8 cardamom pods
  • 8 black peppercorns
  • A thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of honey (optional)


Follow these simple steps to create your own batch of traditional Yogi tea:

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  2. Add all the spices, including the cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom pods, black peppercorns, ginger slices, nutmeg, fennel seeds, and coriander seeds.
  3. Lower the heat and let the spices simmer for about 30 minutes. This will allow the flavors to infuse into the water.
  4. Add the black tea bags and let them steep for another 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the milk.
  6. Strain the tea to remove the spices and tea bags.
  7. If desired, add a teaspoon of honey for a touch of sweetness.
  8. Pour the tea into cups or mugs and serve hot.

Tips and Variations

Here are some expert tips and variations to enhance your Yogi tea experience:

  • For a stronger and spicier flavor, increase the amount of spices and steeping time.
  • Experiment with different types of tea, such as green tea or herbal blends, for unique variations.
  • Add a splash of vanilla extract or a sprinkle of cocoa powder for a decadent twist.
  • Serve your Yogi tea with a slice of lemon or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra touch of indulgence.
  • Enjoy your Yogi tea in a cozy corner, savoring each sip as a moment of tranquility and self-care.
