Ayurveda, the Doshas and Yogi tea


Spices: Ground Cinnamon, Cinnamon Rolls, Clove, Anice, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Vanilla, Roses

Since the beginning, we have used Ayurvedic principles to formulate teas for well-being. Part of the Ayurvedic system of energetics includes the concept of three primal metabolic regulatory forces, the doshas: vata, pitta and kapha.

In general, our teas are formulated to be tridoshic, so that anyone can benefit from any given tea. However, some tea formulas are more directed toward one particular dosha. Depending on the dosha being targeted, we select ingredients that are known to reduce that particular energy in the body.


Below are examples of Yogi tea ingredients that reduce each dosha:

Vata: Cardamom seed and Haritaki fruit

Pitta: Amla fruit and Rose petal

Kapha: Black pepper and Eleuthero root


Below are examples of Yogi teas recommended for each dosha:

Vata: Yogi Honey Lavender Stress Relief (vata can promote tension) and Yogi Bedtime (vata can promote occasional sleeplessness)

Pitta: Yogi Egyptian Licorice Mint (licorice and mints are cooling) and Yogi Skin DeTox (skin is a pitta organ, and this tea helps reduce heat in the body)

Kapha: Yogi Green Tea Energy (kapha can promote lethargy) and Yogi Breathe Deep (kapha can promote respiratory congestion)


By formulating our teas from a central base of Ayurveda, Yogi tea is able to bring the benefits of herbs from around the globe to you in a tasty, purposeful way.
