If you feel like you need more energy...need to relieve stress...need a good cleanse...or overall, just want to feel better, herbal tea is something to try. In this post, I am going to discuss my recent favorite: Yogi Tea!
Our 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."
The Detox tea left me feeling great every single day. I had more energy than ever, was able to focus so well, and was significantly less stressed. You can drink several cups of the Detox tea a day for 30 days, but then you need to take a break from detoxing.
Yogi Tea comes in an ENDLESS number of kinds. The two that I am using right now are Kava Stress Relief, which eases tension and promotes relaxation, and Green Tea Super Antioxidant, which helps reduce free radicals.
Check out Yogi Tea's website to see all of the fabulous teas that they offer...
Another thing that I love about the tea is the positive, uplifting message on each teabag. This is one that I had recently...
If you like yoga, you will love that there is a different yoga tip on every box of Yogi Tea! Here's an example:
Yoga for Youthfulness
Sit in a comfortable position. Point index fingers forward and place right over left with the right hand facing downward and the left hand upward. Bring hands to diaphragm and slowly inhale through nose and exhale through mouth, directing air towards the tips of your index fingers. Breathe slowly in this position for 1 to 3 minutes and feel the energy circulate.
The website itself, aside from the tea, is so inspiring! Use the store locator on the site to find where you can buy your own Yogi Tea. If you try any of the ones I recommended, or if you try any that I haven't tried yet...I'd love to hear from you! Something I also really love...my teapot :) There is just something different about making tea the way it's supposed to be made! It feels so authentic.
Have a fun Super Bowl Sunday everyone...
