The Natural Goodness of Yogi:
Yogi has been creating all-natural and organic teas for more than 30 years. Their philosophy is simple: they believe wholesome, unprocessed foods are the best way to enjoy essential health benefits complimented by intriguing, delightful flavors - qualities that make all of their products uniquely Yogi.
About Yogi Tea:
Their story begins in 1969 when Yogi Bhajan, an inspired and inspiring teacher of holistic living, started teaching yoga in America. He shared the wisdom and knowledge of Ayurveda and healthy living that he had mastered in India with his students while serving a specially spiced tea, which they affectionately named "Yogi Tea." The recipe contained five traditional Ayurvedic spices: cardamom seed, cinnamon bark, clove bud, ginger root and black pepper. When blended and brewed, these delicious spices leave you feeling vibrant and alive, while boosting overall well-being. Intrigued by the complex flavor and inherent health benefits of this unique combination of spices, it wasn't long before several of the yogi's students were inspired to brew their own "Yogi Tea."
In 1984 this grassroots endeavor blossomed into the Yogi Tea Company. Packages of the rough, dried spices began to appear in natural foods stores throughout Southern California. As demand increased, the spices were more finely ground, packaged and sealed into individual tea bags. By 1986, Yogi Tea was distributed nationwide in three flavors.Yogi has continued to expand and evolve their tea offerings to address specific health needs by creating specialized herbal formulas, blended for both flavor and purpose. Today, Yogi has over 60 tea blends, many of which are created using the five original Yogi spices.The holistic teachings of Ayurveda and healthy living are the inspiration behind Yogi. These teachings continue to inform how they develop their products, and they honor and reflect them through the Yogi Principles.
- Tasting great is essential, but it isn't enough. If what they make doesn't taste great and leave you feeling great, they won't make it.
- They think before they blend or bake. How will their recipes work with body and mind?
- Health is found in nature. They work with what nature already offers rather than trying to concoct it. They don't have laboratories, they have kitchens.
- Creative combinations can optimize what nature has to offer. Ever added Goji Berry to Ginger? They work together to produce a remarkably fresh and innovative taste... and a remarkable level of energy.
- Whenever possible, they work with wholes, not parts. They don't add vitamin C. They add Indian Gooseberry, which is naturally rich in vitamin C.
