Yogi Tea is a specific blend of healing spices brewed as a delicious tea with herbs that have been known to cleanse the blood, aid in digestion, and serve as an overall tonic.
4 qts. water
25 whole cloves
6-8 3-4" cinnamon sticks
25 green cardamom pods
3-4" gingerroot (scrubbed clean, not peeled) thinly sliced
1 tsp. black tea (or 1 tea bag) – decaf is ok
Bring water to a fast boil in a stainless steel pot. Add whole cloves and let them dance for about 1 minute. Add peppercorns, cinnamon, cardamom and gingerroot. Turn heat down so it is just simmering, cover, and let lightly boil for 45-60 minutes. Remove from heat, add black tea, allow to cool and then strain. Add milk or soymilk and honey for taste. Keeps well for a week in the refrigerator. If you would like to use it as a liver/colonic tonic, drink one cup in the morning – cold – and with no milk or sweetener.
