Member Piers Wander has been busy with classes and training! Here is a tea recipe from his sources and notes. It is from K.P. Khalsa, a long time student of Yogi Bhajan. K.P. Was also in charge of Formulation of the Company YOGI TEA for years! This is the original recipe given by Yogi Bhajan.
For each 8 oz. cup, start with 10 oz. of water. For convenience, make at least 4 cups at one time.
For each cup of boiling water, add:
3 whole cloves
4 whole green cardamom pods
6 whole black peppercorns
1⁄2 stick cinnamon
Optional: 1 slice of fresh ginger root
Boil for 20-30 minutes, then add 1⁄4 tsp. any black tea.
Let sit for one or two minutes and then add 1⁄2 cup milk and re-heat. Strain and serve with honey to taste.
Black pepper is a blood purifier, cardamom is for the colon (gas), cloves are for the nervous system and cinnamon for the bones.
Ginger has a delicious taste and is helpful when suffering from a cold, recovering from the flu or for general physical weakness.
The milk aids in the easy assimilation of the spices and avoids irritation to the colon.
The black tea creates a synergy for all of the ingredients.
