Yogi Tea | Wellbeing (17tb)
Tea with sweet cinnamon and aromatic sage tastes like relaxing in an Oriental-Mediterranean style. Lemon grass, cardamom and liquorice inspire the unique taste. It is an art to take time for ourselves and feel good. We can learn it with a cup of Wellbeing Tea and therefore understand: “If you are good to yourself, you can also be friendly to others.” The subtle message of this tea is: “Bridge to friendliness.”

More about Yogi Tea Wellbeing
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.
The name of this wonderfully fragrant plant from the Mediterranean region is based on the Latin word salvare. Due to its fresh-spicy and slightly bitter taste, sage was already worth its weight in gold in old China.
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.
Its full, slightly bitter-sharp aroma has made oregano an elemental component of Mediterranean cuisine. Found throughout all of Central Europe, as well as in North America and the Middle East, oregano is very widespread as a popular spice plant.
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.
Lemon grass contains essential oils and has a strong, lemony-fresh taste. The origins of this plant from the family of grasses that is primarily used in the Asian kitchen are still unclear to this day.
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.
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.
Lemon verbena was first introduced to Europe at the end of the 18th century. Its homeland is under the South American sun. The lemon verbena belongs to the vervain family and contains fine essential oils.
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.
The highly spicy fenugreek grows in Morocco, India, China, Africa, Australia and Europe. Its German name of Bockshornklee is based on its shape, which reminds people of billy goat horns (Bockshorn). In 795 A.D., Charles the Great ordered the cultivation of fenugreek in the monastery gardens and allowed it to spread throughout Europe as a result.
In the Middle East and Asia, the slightly sweetish tasting coriander is used in almost every dish, presumably due to its splendid aroma that is reminiscent of a spicy-savoury mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange.
