Recipe: Yogi tea
Yogi tea is a spiced tea similar to chai.
15 whole cloves
20 black peppercorns
3 sticks of cinnamon
20 green cardamom pods (crushed or split)
8 or more 1/4" (0.75cm) slices of fresh ginger root
1/2 tsp black tea (decaf black tea is acceptable)
Bring 2 quarts (about 2L) of water to boil in 3-4 quart pot.
Add cloves and boil for 1 minute.
Add peppercorns, cinnamon, cardamom pods and ginger.
Cover and simmer gently for at least 30 minutes. (For best flavor, cover tightly and simmer over low heat for 2 to 3 hours!)
Remove from heat and add tea.
Strain ingredients from the finished tea.
When ready to drink, sweeten to taste with honey or maple syrup. Add soy milk or dairy milk.
