About the Company
Yogi Tea story begins in 1969 when Yogi Bhajan an inspired and inspiring teacher of holistic living started teaching yoga in America. He shared the wisdom and knowledge of Ayurveda and healthy living that he had mastered in India with his students while serving a specially spiced tea which they affectionately named "Yogi Tea." The recipe contained five traditional Ayurvedic spices: cardamom seed cinnamon bark clove bud ginger root and black pepper. When blended and brewed these delicious spices leave you feeling vibrant and alive while boosting overall well-being. Intrigued by the complex flavor and inherent health benefits of this unique combination of spices it wasn't long before several of the yogi's students were inspired to brew their own "Yogi Tea."
In 1984 this grassroots endeavor blossomed into the Yogi Tea Company. Packages of the rough dried spices began to appear in natural foods stores throughout Southern California. As demand increased the spices were more finely ground packaged and sealed into individual tea bags. By 1986 Yogi Tea was distributed nationwide in three flavors.
Yogi has continued to expand and evolve our tea offerings to address specific health needs by creating specialized herbal formulas blended for both flavor and purpose. Today Yogi has over 60 tea blends many of which are created using the five original Yogi spices. Yogi teas are available in natural grocery and mass market stores in the US and Canada.

- Tasting great is essential but it isn't enough. If what we make doesn't taste great and leave you feeling great we won't make it.
- Yogi thinks before they blend. How will their recipes work with body and mind?
- Health is found in nature. Yogi works with what nature already offers rather than trying to concoct it. They don't have laboratories they have kitchens.
- Creative combinations can optimize what nature has to offer. Ever added peppermint to ginger? They work together to produce a remarkably fresh and innovative taste... and a remarkably invigorating experience.
- Whenever possible Yogi work with wholes not parts. They blend with whole spices and botanicals for their natural goodness – they don't supplement with vitamins and minerals.
