Yogi Tea

Yield: 2 quarts Total time: 3 hours February 27, 2003

You’ll use more spices than tea to make this, warm, comforting beverage.

Recipe from Yoga Yoga.


  • 2 quarts water
  • 15 whole cloves
  • 20 black peppercorns
  • 3 sticks cinnamon
  • 20 green cardamom pods, crushed or split
  • 8 or more 1/4-inch-thick slices fresh ginger root
  • 1/2 tsp. black tea


Bring water to boil in a 3- to 4-quart pot. Add cloves and boil for 1 minute. Then add black peppercorns, cinnamon, cardamom pods and ginger root.

Cover and boil gently for at least 30 minutes. (For best flavor, cover tightly and boil over a low heat for 2 to 3 hours).

After boiling, turn off and add black tea (do not omit) and let tea cool. Strain tea and refrigerate.

To serve, reheat and sweeten to taste with honey or maple syrup. Add soy milk or dairy milk.
