Yogi Tea

IMG_0424

So I got this recipe from Adriene, as in Yoga with Adriene. I didn’t really realize there was a video with instructions, so I just kind of winged it (wung it?). It’s not too spicy, and though it’s not the same taste exactly, it seems to me similar to Good Earth tea. (I’m not sure if that black speck is a cardamom seed bit or a gnat, but I didn’t notice it going down, so I guess I’ll live.)

Ingredients (makes 2 quarts):

  • 15 whole cloves
  • 20 black peppercorns
  • 3 sticks of cinnamon
  • 20 whole cardamom pods (split pods first)
  • 8 ginger slices (no need to peel)
  • 2 bags black tea
  • 2 quarts water

for serving

  • milk of your choice (I have been using vanilla almond milk)
  • honey to taste

Directions

1, Place spices, tea, and water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.

2. Boil/steep for 5-8 minutes and strain into glass quart jar.

3. Use tea as concentrate for either hot or cold beverage. I use at least 2/3 tea to 1/3 milk and will probably make my concentrate stronger next time (by using less water but the same amount of spices and tea).
