2019 got off to a great start for us: we launched our new YOGI TEA® For the Senses hot tea range at the very beginning of the year. The wealth of positive feedback we have received from you makes us very grateful and proud. A big thank-you to you all!
Alongside the many compliments, you have of course also sent us some questions about the new, inspiring creations that we want to publish here, as some of you might have asked yourself the same questions…
You probably noticed right away: even when preparing the tea, there’s already a wonderful and intense aroma of lemongrass, lemon, lavender or mint… and the teas somehow feel different on the palate. The reason for this is that the new tea creations contain precious essential oils.
Essential oils are the so-called “essence of plants” – captured in liquid form. They are produced and stored in the different parts of the plant such as blossoms, leaves, but also bark, roots, or resin. They evoke a pleasant, velvety mouth feel for an intense tea experience. These are extracted in different ways, for example through pressing or distillation, depending on the type of oil.
The oils used in our YOGI TEA® For the Senses teas are:
• authentic, as they only contain the oil of the original plant listed.
• pure, as they contain no artificial additives.
• single-origin, as they are not diluted with other oils.
Essential oils contain the concentrated strength of the entire plant. For YOGI TEA® For the Senses, they were carefully combined with 100% organic herbs and spices from the gardens of nature, in order to create an intensive tea experience that stimulates the senses and supports everyday mindfulness. Studies have shown that the body reacts differently to scents. That is not only due to the memories that are associated with certain scents, but also with the smell receptors that are locate everywhere on the skin and body. Using brain imaging, it can be seen that scents have a stimulating or alternatively calming effect on body and mind.
“Treating yourself with care, pausing, opening yourself to the present moment and enjoying it fully with all senses”
That is the inspiration from YOGI TEA® For the Senses.
The enjoyment of every cup helps you to consciously and mindfully experience your day. And of course every YOGI TEA® For the Senses tea bag comes with one of the popular YOGI TEA® wise sayings with original quotes from our founder, Yogi Bhajan.
Yogi Bhajan inspired his students to treat themselves, their fellow humans and nature with care – a way of living that even today can really inspire people.
With the yogic wisdom on each tea bag, the yoga poses on each pack and the wonderful fragrance and intense flavour, we invite you to enjoy a delicious cup of YOGI TEA® For the Senses and beautiful moments of mindfulness.
One of our principles is that we only procure raw materials from the entire world that correspond to the very highest quality standards.
All ingredients used in the YOGI TEA®s are planted according to organic farming rules and are certified according to the EU Organic Regulation (EC) 834/2007. We have analysis certificates for our raw materials, which confirm compliance with the statutory rule. Read more here: Our Quality
Wherever we use extracts, these are fully organic, so that we list them as “oils” in the ingredients list, in accordance with their quality and nature.
YOGI TEA® For the Senses is available across the board in natural and health food shops.
Currently we are in the introductory phase of the new line, therefore the availability of the range can initially be limited in the shops you use. IF you have any problems finding the tea, feel free to ask the shop staff about it.
We hope we have provided you with some more insights into the world of YOGI TEA® For the Senses and wish you wonderful, mindful and inspiring tea moments!
