The history of Yogi Tea

Yogi Bhajan is the founder of Yogi Tea. He is an Indian spiritual teacher who brought the Sikh religion to the West. He began teaching Kundalini Yoga in America in 1969. After each yoga class, he served a spiced tea to his students, which they affectionately named “Yogi Tea”. The tea was a blend of five traditional Ayurvedic spices: cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and black pepper. Ayurvedic medicine holds that this combination of spices has unique, healthful properties so they are still included in many current formulas.

In the 1970s, students of Yogi Bhajan opened Golden Temple Vegetarian Restaurants in the United States, Canada and Europe. Through these restaurants, Yogi Tea was sold to the public, leading to the creation of the Yogi Tea Company in 1984. Over the next couple of years, the business developed a nationwide distribution network, with finely ground spices packaged in teabags in three varieties. In 1988, Yogi Tea’s team of herbalists expanded the line to include a number of formulas developed to address specific health needs.
