YOGI TEA® historyYogi Tea's story begins in 1969 when Yogi Bhajan, an inspired and inspiring teacher of holistic living, started teaching yoga in the west. He shared the wisdom and knowledge of Ayurveda and healthy living that he had mastered in India with his students while serving them 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. Throughout the seventies and eighties Yogi Tea was served in yoga centers and vegetarian Golden Temple restaurants. Intrigued by the deliciously complex flavor and inherent 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." This grassroots endeavor blossomed into the Yogi Tea Company and before long packages of the rough, dried spices began to appear in natural foods stores. As demand increased, the spices were more finely ground, packaged and sealed into individual tea bags. Now sold all over the world, YOGI TEA® has continued to grow and expand its tea offerings with over 40 unique and delicious tea blends available in Europe.
Our Commitment"YOGI TEA® is committed to providing the highest quality ingredients while also protecting the earth’s natural resources. The herbs and spices we use in our teas are grown in controlled organic environments wherever possible. To date, we have managed to source all 70 of our herbs and spices 100% organically grown and are proud to offer all natural products.
Organic farming offers a number of benefits to consumers, farmers and the environment. Organic techniques rely on the environment's natural cycles to replenish the richness of the soil. Since rich soil yields strong, pest-resistant crops, farmers do not need chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This creates a healthy work environment for the farmers. These techniques also maintain topsoil integrity, reduce the amount of chemical run-off into lakes, streams and ground water, and (most importantly) provide the consumer with food that is all natural and basically chemical-free. Today, we continue in our genuine concern for the health of our customers and we stand behind our commitment of creating quality natural products. We believe that the high standards we keep and the organic ingredients we use in our teas make YOGI TEA® the outstanding successful company it is today."
