Detox Yogi Tea

Photo by Julia Sakelli on

After spending Friday through Sunday introducing ya’ll to some tasty but not so healthy Potent Potables and snacks I guilted myself into brewing a nice healthy batch of Yogi Tea.

What’s Yogi Tea? Good question. It is a common detox tea made of all natural spices, herbs and black tea. Of the many healthy characteristics this brew has are:

Antioxidants that block free radicals in our systems.

Anti-inflammatory properties that reduce inflammation in our cells. Inflamed cells are more prone to infectious disease.

Lowers LDL Cholesterol or the Bad Cholesterol.

Lowers blood sugars.

Lowers Blood Pressure.

Improves focus.

Helps prevent heart disease and stroke risk.

Lowers appetite.

Lowers risk of Alzheimer and Parkinson’s Disease

Kills bacteria.

Good for digestive issues and Gut Health.

Last, but certainly not least, helps bad breath.

Ok, OK R Dub, you’ve got our attention. How do you make it?


20 each black pepper corns

15 each whole cloves

20 each cracked cardamom seeds (crack them under the blade of a flat knife)

8 slices of ginger root

2 bags of black tea

3 cinnamon sticks

4 quarts water


Bring water to a rolling boil in a 4 quart or larger stew pot.

Add all ingredient EXCEPT tea bags and continue rolling boil for 2 minutes.

Reduce heat to low, add tea bags and let steep for 30 minutes.

Strain dry ingredients through a fine sieve into a different 4 qt or large pot.

Let cool and refrigerate.
