Do you know how to make Yogi Tea? There really is no wrong way so let’s just get in the kitchen and give it a try. I have listed one of my favorite recipes below. However do not get stuck on the ingredients. The bottom line is all you need is some filtered water, a pot and some herbs and spices. The spices below are excellent for your immune system and also wonderful for liver support.

Ingredients

  • quarts filtered water
  • cinnamon sticks
  • tablespoon cardamom seed
  • 1/2  tablespoon whole cloves
  • 1/2  tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger or just peel a few inches and keep it whole.
  • 1 -2 black tea bags- Organic if possible- non flavored

Directions

Bring the water to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer. Add all of the above ingredients and then simmer for 15 minutes- 20 minutes. This takes great patience and is a great time to practice some mindfulness 🙂

I love to watch the colors change in the water.  I do not stand in front of the stove the whole time but I do take 5 minutes and just watch the water and the herbs swim together. The longer you simmer it the better but 15-20 minutes should be great. Strain and serve hot or cold.

Other items I have added to this tea are:

  • peeled turmeric
  • almond milk- once it was done simmering
  • three drops of licorice root- once it was done simmering
  • dandelion root leaves- You can get these at your health food store

PS: I have also brewed a whole pot of this in my slow cooker. Mike loves to take some of this to work and drink it as a cold tea.  It keeps for a few days in the refrigerator.
