Deva & Miten’s spring tour of Europe is being sponsored by YOGI TEA®, which offers 44 varieties of specially blended teas created from more than 80 organically-grown herbs and spices.
YOGI TEA® was founded by followers of Yogi Bhajan, a master of Kundalini Yoga who brought the 3,000 year old Indian Ayurvedic teachings about the balance between body, mind and soul with him when he began teaching in the West in 1969.
He would serve his students an aromatic spice blend which became Yogi Tea’s first offering in the 1970s in Europe, and is now sold as YOGI TEA® Classic worldwide.
Here is the original Yogi Tea recipe – enjoy!
