Yogi tea is a spiced tea similar to chai.

Ingredients

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)

Procedure

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.

Let cool.

Strain ingredients from the finished tea.

When ready to drink, sweeten to taste with honey or maple syrup. Add soy milk or dairy milk.
