A warming milky drink to energise the body, warm the soul and heal unwanted ailments.
A few years ago during my travels in India, I tried Yogi Tea in Dehli but I wasn't keen. It was very strong and the milk was thick and sweet.
I decided to test a recipe for myself and love my twist on this authentic warm holistic drink.
4 x Large Cups of Water
15 x whole cloves
20 x black peppercorns
3 x sticks of cinnamon
20 x squashed cardamon pods
8 x thin slices of fresh ginger (no need to peel)
2 x tea bags (empty tea from them)
Boil water in a pan and add the cloves - boil for 1 minute
Add all other ingredients (not tea) to the pan, cover & boil for 30 minutes
Transfer the mixture to slow cooker and put on medium setting
Leave for 2 or 3 hours
Add black tea from tea bags and let it cool
Use clean cloth strain into a jug
Transfer to glass jars or bottles
Measure two thirds of a cup of milk
Measure one third of a cup of yogi tea concentrate
Add to pan and bring to boil then simmer until warmed through
Serve with a Yoga Ball
Cloves to warm the joints
Cardamon for mental awareness
Peppercorns for circulation
Cinnamon to reduce blood sugars
Ginger for the immune system
Enjoy - would love to hear from you if you try making this recipe.
