Peppermint Leaf

Peppermint is a perennial plant that produces light purple flowers and green leaves with serrated edges. Commonly used as a flavoring in products such as candy, chewing gum, toothpaste, and ice cream, peppermint also has been used traditionally to cool the body by promoting sweating, which can help support the respiratory system. Peppermint has also been widely used to support digestion and to soothe an occasional minor upset stomach.

Lemongrass

Lemongrass is a tropical herb that is popular in Thai cooking. Traditionally, is has been used to support normal respiratory function. Lemongrass tastes great and is a warming herb that can support digestion.

Echinacea Root

Echinacea is a genus of nine species of herbaceous plants, all of which are native to the United States and southern Canada. One species,Echinacea angustifolia, was widely used by the North American Plains Indians for its general medicinal qualities. Today herbalists use the root to support the body's immune system. Three Echinacea roots -purpurea,pallidaandangustifolia- are used in herbal medicine and are considered to be clinically identical and interchangeable.

Cinnamon Bark

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.

Licorice Root

Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a flavorful, sweet herb that has been used for thousands of years and is still one of the most widely used herbs in all herbal systems. Licorice has been used traditionally to support the skin and the liver. It also is thought by herbalists to help soothe indigestion and the throat.

Spearmint Leaf

Spearmint Leaf has been used for culinary and medicinal purposes since the time of the ancient Romans. It is mildly soothing and relaxing overall. Ayurveda says that this herb can help to clear the mind and senses. Like all mints, spearmint is a mild herb that can help support the respiratory system.

Fennel Seed

Botanically-speaking, fennel seeds are not seeds, but are the fruits of the sweet fennel plant, an herb that has been cultivated for culinary and medicinal use for thousands of years. In India, fennel seeds are routinely chewed after meals to support digestion and to act as an herbal mouth freshener.

Cardamom Seed

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.

Rose Hip

The rose hip is thepomaceous(similar to an apple) fruit of the rose plant. Rose hip has a delicious tart taste and astringent action and supplies antioxidants and vitamin C. In traditional herbal medicine, rose hip isused to support the immune system.

Ginger Root

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.

Burdock Root

Burdock Root - a member of the daisy family that originated in Eurasia - is now firmly established as a naturalized plant in North America. Herbalists value burdock for helping to detoxify the liver. The root is served as a food in Japan, where it is known as gobo. Resembling a long brown carrot, burdock can be prepared in the same way you might enjoy a carrot, such as fresh juice or in a stir-fry dish.

Clove Bud

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.

Mullein Leaf

A common wildflower native to Europe and Asia, mullein has a long history of use in herbal medicine as a soothing herb. Herbalists have traditionally used mullein to support the immune and respiratory systems.

Stevia Leaf

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.

Black Pepper

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.

Astragalus Root Extract

Astragalus Root, or milk vetch root, is considered a superior herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it is known as Huang Qi. A member of the legume family, Chinese families regularly add astragalus to the family stewpot. Japanese herbalists use astragalus, which they call "ogi," to support a variety of functions, including energy, digestion and elimination. Unlike many Chinese herbs, astragalus is surprisingly tasty as a tea, with a velvety texture and a sweet, buttery taste.

Natural and Organic Flavors

Natural and organic flavors are derived from natural sources such as spices, fruit, herbs, roots, or many other plants or foods, whose significant function in food is flavoring.

Essential Oils

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."

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.

The Yogi Philosophy

At Yogi we believe the purpose of business is to serve. Yogi was founded on that belief and still uses the idea of business serving as its guiding principle: "Feel Good, Be Good, Do Good." At Yogi we are committed to providing healthy, natural teas that are accessible to as many people as possible. With more than 40 years of experience, we strive to support the health and well-being of our consumers by incorporating the highest-quality natural and organic ingredients in our teas.

The holistic teachings of Ayurveda and healthy living are the inspiration behind Yogi. These teachings continue to inform how we develop our products, and we honor and reflect them through the Yogi Principles.

Yogi Principles

  • Tasting great is essential, but it isn't enough. If what we make doesn't taste great and leave you feeling great, we won't make it.
  • We think before we blend. How will our recipes work with body and mind?
  • Health is found in nature. We work with what nature already offers rather than trying to concoct it. We don't have laboratories, we have kitchens.
  • Creative combinations can optimize what nature has to offer. Ever added peppermint to ginger? They work together to produce a remarkably fresh and innovative taste…and a remarkably invigorating experience.
  • Whenever possible, we work with wholes, not parts. We blend with whole spices and botanicals for their natural goodness - we don't supplement with vitamins and minerals.

Yogi has been creating all-natural and organic teas for more than 30 years. Our philosophy is simple: we believe wholesome, unprocessed foods are the best way to enjoy essential health benefits complimented by intriguing, delightful flavors - qualities that make all of our products uniquely Yogi.

Quality Testing

To ensure consistency and quality, Yogi ingredients are meticulously reviewed and tested for insecticides, pesticides and heavy metals. Our ingredients are handled carefully, from the time they're harvested, through the manufacturing process in our organically certified facility. We strictly adhere to the prohibition of GMO ingredients as required by the National Organic Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and by Quality Assurance International (QAI), our third party organic certifier.

This process ensures Yogi teas are made to our own scrutinizing standards and ultimately deliver unsurpassed quality to you, our customer.

Packaging and Shipping

Our teas are packaged and shipped responsibly. Herbs are carefully placed into 100% oxygen bleached paper bags, sewn with pure cotton strings and stapled with inert metal. Every Yogi tea bag is then individually packed in heat-sealed envelopes to preserve the intrinsic health benefits of our herbs, natural antioxidants and maintain freshness and flavor.

At Yogi, we are truly committed to sustainability, doing our part to protect our forests, and reducing landfill burden. We package all of our Yogi teas in 100% recycled paperboard and ship the product in cases of 100% recycled cardboard. Our tea packaging has a 55% post-consumer waste content. We print all of our packaging with environmentally-friendly, vegetable-based inks. Our commitment ensures the highest quality products for you, while respecting our planet. It is our hope that this goodness shines through in every Yogi product.
