How To Make Yogi Tea at Home

Dublin, Ireland

I don't know when I first started watching Yoga with Adriene or why I started watching it but it's been around eight months I'd say and her videos have become an integral part of my life. Each morning that I have time, I try to start the day off with a Ted Talk or Ted-Ed video followed by some Yoga with Adriene.

Adriene is a Yoga instructor who Youtubes many helpful videos for free. Her videos are charged with wholesomeness both from the content and her bright, and welcoming personality. She really encompasses the happy yogi lifestyle that stereotypes allude to.

 I can't remember the last time I drank black tea. I am more of a herbal tea kind of girl and if I can make it myself, that's even better! I came across Adriene's Yogi Tea recipe about two months ago after finishing one of her yoga lessons and since then I have been brewing tea at home. As much as I love her recipe, the great thing about it is that its simplicity allows for a lot of change and therefore personal touch.

You can check out her recipe here which is brilliant.

The last few times I've made her tea I've altered it a little bit.

- Cloves
- Ginger
- Black Peppercorn
- Cinnamon Stick
- Lemon Juice

I don't add the tea bag because the caffeine in it doesn't really agree with me and I also much prefer the taste without it. I added some lemon juice and I also messed around with the ratio of ingredients because I love cloves and ginger. I always add a lot more of these two and a few extra black pepper corns too. I'm not too keen on the cinnamon stick so I tend to use about a quarter of a stick.

If you are adding lemon, I wouldn't advice putting in the lemon fruit itself as I did the first time. It gives the brew a really zesty, too bitter taste. But sure if you're into that, who am I to tell you what to do?

It's such a simple recipe and requires about 5 minutes of prep getting your ingredients ready but it fills the house with a glorious natural perfume. This tea is definitely a step up from the ginger and lemon juice drinks I use to make when I was sick. I also like to season the tea with some honey afterwards for taste.
