Yogi Tea Recipe
Spice up your life! Yogi Tea is a famous tonic for the entire nervous system. It reduces tiredness and helps restore mental balance.
10 litre water
1/2 cup cardamom pods
1/3 cup whole cloves
1 cup ginger root, thinly sliced
15 cinnamon sticks
4 black tea bags
3 litres milk (of choice)
135 black peppercorns
Bring water to boil in large pot. Add cloves and let dance for 2 mins. Add cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. Cover and simmer for at least 45 mins. Add black tea and milk. Bring to the boil and immediately remove from heat. Allow to stand, un-strained, until almost time to serve to increase potency of tea. Most spices will settle to the bottom.
Sweeten if desired.
Yogi Tea is a remedy and preventative measure for colds, flu and sinus problems.
The peppercorns are a blood purifier, cardamom is for the digestive system, cloves are for the nervous system, cinnamon is for the bones, ginger is an aid in strengthening the nervous system, as well as energizing the entire person, and the black tea acts as a catalyst for the other ingredients.
Milk (cow) aids in the assimilation of the spices and helps avoid irritation of the stomach and colon. And the mucous-producing qualities of milk are greatly reduced by boiling the milk. If you have intolerance to dairy, use coconut, rice, almond or cashew milk. Most yogis love the aroma and taste of Yogi Tea!
