More about Yogi Tea Heartwarming blend
This “royal plant”, as the Ancient Greeks called basil, came to northern Europe in the 12th century. It has a wonderfully spicy aroma, which is ideally featured in both Mediterranean cuisine and freshly brewed tea.
The orange is the most frequently cultivated citrus fruit in the world. It originally came from Asia and was only introduced to Europe in the 15th century. Its peel contains numerous essential oils and the taste is similar to the fruit pulp in its fruitiness but not quite as sweet and slightly bitter.
Chili peppers are annual plants of the nightshade family that primarily thrive in sunny countries such as Mexico, India, Thailand and Tanzania. Their natural pungency has made them one of the most popular spice plants in the world.
Liquorice has already been known since ancient times. Its sweetening power is about 50 times stronger than that of sugar. It tastes mild-sweetish and bitter-tart.
Dried lemon juice
To this today, it is still not clear where the lemon – a member of the citrus family – actually came from. It is presumed that its origins were in northern India. But due to its refreshing-sour taste, it has already been widespread around the world for thousands of years.
Cinnamon is among the most expensive spices in the world and was supposedly already used as a spice in China in 3,000 B.C. Cinnamon is extracted from the bark of the South-Asian cinnamon tree. It has an aromatic-sweetish taste and contains valuable essential oils
Whether in the Christmas biscuits, as a curry mixture or in lemonade: The bulbous ginger is among the best-known spice plants in the world. For thousands of years, it has been cultivated in the tropical heat of eastern Asia. It gives many of our YOGI TEA®s a fruity-hot and aromatically spicy taste.
Cardamom has been one of the most popular spices for thousands of years throughout the entire Asian and Arabian area. Its subtle, sweetish-spicy aroma predestines cardamom for use in many different foods ranging from sharp curries to spicy Christmas biscuits.
Cloves are the flower buds of the clove tree and primarily familiar as a spice for both sweet and salty food in the European part of the world. They belong to the myrtle family and have an intensive spicy aroma. They were even worth their weight in gold in both old China and Egypt.
Also called the “king of spices,” black pepper is one of the world’s most important spices in addition to salt. It originally came from the Indian Malabar Coast and tastes intensive-spicy, ranging from slightly spicy to quite spicy.
