“Natural and organic flavors are derived from natural sources such as spices, fruit, herbs, roots, or many other plants or foods, whose significant function in food is flavoring.”

 

Review:

Interesting combination of herbs and teas gives this somewhat a medicinal taste with a sweet edge thanks to the stevia leaf. It took a few sips to really adjust to the flavor and tasting a few things in this tea such as the orange and rose standing out. It’s a mild tea with a slight aftertaste of sweetness and citrus.

Stevia Leaf

 

Review:

I love that the mint in this tea is not overpowering, don’t get me wrong I love a good mint tea but at times it can be over powering and drowned out the other ingredients. The mint does not do that in this tea and although you can taste it’s freshness there is so many other herbals mixing in this that it taste reminds me of lovely spring field. The lemon, lavender and chamomile play a big role in the flavor of this tea and often are ingredients that are used to calm the body, mind and soul. This tea is not overly sweet yet it is mild with little aftertaste.

 

Cost: $4.89 per box (16 teabags)

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

Company highlights, notes and more:

 

Our story began in 1969 when Yogi Bhajan, an inspired and inspiring teacher of holistic living, started teaching yoga in the West. He shared with his students the wisdom and knowledge of healthy living and the beneficial properties of herbs that he had mastered in India, all while serving a comforting and aromatic spiced tea they affectionately named “Yogi Tea.”

Included in the recipe were five traditional Ayurvedic spices: cardamom seed, cinnamon bark, clove bud, ginger root and black pepper. When blended and brewed, these delicious and aromatic spices leave you feeling vibrant and alive, while supporting 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 dried spices began to appear in natural foods stores throughout Southern California and in Europe. By 1986, Yogi Tea was distributed nationwide in three flavors. As demand increased, the spices were more finely ground, packaged and sealed into individual tea bags.
