Product Description - Yogi Tea Chai Black Tea 16 Tea Bags
Transport yourself to the palaces of India with every cup of Chai Black. The journey begins with rich, full-bodied Organic Assam Black Tea from the Assam region of India - one of only two places in the world with native tea plants. To create an authentic, invigorating chai, we've added a blend of the classic spices of Cinnamon, Cardamom and Ginger, traditionally used for centuries in Ayurveda for their warming and cleansing properties. So sit back and savor the exquisite flavor of our alluring Chai Black. Enjoy it plain, or for a more traditional brew add milk or milk substitute and your favorite sweetener.
Assam Black Tea
Assam is a black tea named after the region of its production: Assam, India. Assam tea is created specifically from the plantCamellia sinensisvar. assamica. This tea, most of which is grown at or near sea level, is known for its body, briskness, malty flavor, and strong, bright color.
Cardamom seed is a uniquely flavored culinary herb in the ginger family. But cardamom seed is more than its delicious flavor. This herb is warming and has been traditionally used to support healthy stomach and digestive function as well as the respiratory system.
Cinnamon Bark comes from a small evergreen tree that is native to Sri Lanka. Cinnamon is a pungent, sweet and hot spice that can warm and invigorates the body and support function of the respiratory and digestive systems. It can also help to promote circulation to the joints and support immune function.
Ginger Root, the underground stem, or rhizome, of the plantZingiber officinale, has been used in many herbal traditions since ancient times. In Ayurveda, ginger is known as the wonder herb, and it's no wonder, since Ayurveda uses ginger for a wide variety of conditions, including supporting digestion. Historically, ginger root was one of the most respected herbs for supporting joint health. Ginger has also been traditionally used to support healthy peripheral circulation, so it can help warm up cold hands and feet, and will also promote sweating when that is needed.
Stevia is a genus of about 240 species of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower family native to subtropical and tropical South America and Central America. The leaf is used primarily as a sweetener in South America. Locals there use it as a substitute for sugar for those who can't use sugar. Various glycosides, includingstevoside- which is about 100 to 200 times sweeter than sugar - provide the sweetness. It is widely used as a non-sugar sweetener in other areas of the world, particularly in Japan.
Clove Buds are the aromatic dried flower buds of a tree in the Myrtle family. The English name clove derives from Latinclavus(nail), as the shape of the buds resembles small nails. Clove bud is widely used as a spice in ancient Asian herbal traditions. With a warming quality, clove supports circulation and digestion.
Not only is Black Pepper one of the most widely used culinary spices in the world, it also has a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine. A spicy herb that can help support digestion, it also supplies antioxidants, which can help to reduce free radicals. As a diuretic, black pepper can support water balance in the body.
Essential oils are natural oils extracted from plants by distillation.
To enjoy the savory spice of our Chai Black, bring water to boiling and steep 5 to 10 minutes. For a stronger tea, use 2 tea bags. Add your favorite sweetener and milk or milk substitute.

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."
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 our 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. Yogi teas are available in natural, grocery and mass market stores in the US and Canada.
