Ever since YOGI TEA® was founded in the 1970s, it’s been about more than creating Ayurvedic herbal and spiced teas. With every ingredient we source, and every cup of tea we make, we strive to support quality, sustainability and social responsibility on a local, national and global level.
YOGI TEA®s promote harmony between mind and soul, giving people a sense of well-being. This is made possible with the high-quality, verified organic ingredients produced by farmers around the world. For that reason we support various sustainable projects via our partners in the growing locations. We personally make sure this is the case by visiting the sometimes remote growing areas and by providing advice and support to the local people.
Another focus for YOGI TEA® is providing support and funding for people in need across the globe. YOGI TEA® supports several projects that support children in need, including the Kumari project in Nepal and the Nevandra project in India.
Through The Kumari Project, YOGI TEA® supports building safe and joyful childhoods for orphans in Nepal.
Through the Nevandra Association, YOGI TEA® supports two projects to provide children in Hyderabad (India) with hope for the future by facilitating self-help initiatives focused on love, shelter, health and education.
YOGI TEA® also supports the non-profit conservation organisation Naturefund, that concentrates on buying forests and replanting them to protect habitat for the great variety of species, most notably in Madagascar.
Through the Medadumbara education project, YOGI TEA® supports a scholarship scheme in Sri Lanka for children from needy farming families.
As a producer of organic herbal and spiced teas, the unique natural diversity of nature is something that YOGI TEA® cares about greatly. This is why we are supporting the German Wildlife Foundation (Deutsche Wildtier Stiftung) in its work on behalf of endangered wild bees.
YOGI TEA® is sponsoring the LiBerature Prize and the prize winner with the funding of a writing project of her choice for girls and/or young women in her home country, so that they can gain the prospect of a better future.
Doctors without Borders has operations in over seventy countries. YOGI TEA® supports Doctors without Borders in its efforts throughout the world to help people in need.
Through the “Neighbourhood” programme, YOGI TEA® supports various projects and organisations with donations, sponsorship and active support on site.
The aim of the YOGI TEA® foundation is to spread the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, who spend his lifetime to promote a healthy lifestyle deeply rooted in the practice of yoga and meditation
