Yogi Tea


  • 1 gallon water
  • 30 cloves
  • 30 whole green cardamom pods
  • 30 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 finger of fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 5 sticks cinnamon
  • 1 tea bag (black tea)
  • milk and honey to taste, optional


  • 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 ginger. Turn heat down, so it is just simmering, cover, and let lightly boil for 45-60 minutes.
  • Finally, add a black tea bag and boil another 5 min.
  • If adding milk & honey, do so after adding the tea bag and letting it steep– (or better yet, add milk and honey to individual cups or a small batch. That way you can store the raw tea in the fridge and prepare with milk and honey as you go)
  • After adding milk and or honey, bring to a boil one last time.
  • Remove from heat, and let sit for another hour (or overnight). This way, it gets nice and strong, so you can best enjoy this potent spice blend!
  • Strain and refrigerate.
  • Enjoy!
