The ideal companion to daily yoga training.
YOGI TEA® Sun Salutation goes back to the roots of our history, which began over 40 years ago with yoga and ayurveda. Cinnamon, cardamom and roasted chicory root ground us. The note of fresh orange opens the mind. Inspiring and meditative, like the sun salutation in yoga, this YOGI TEA® creation lets us enjoy a balanced day.
The sun salutation is a classic sequence in Hatha yoga, most commonly practised at the start of a yoga session. However, it is also ideal for practising on its own during your spare moments in order to activate, stretch and strengthen all major muscle groups.
The sun salutation (“Surya Namaskara”, Sanskrit, literally “honour be to you, sun” or “welcome to the sun”) is practised in many different variations. We here describe the classic sun salutation. During this flowing sequence of movements, ensure that you breathe evenly and are therefore conscious of your body. Should any of the movements cause you pain, please don’t do it or adapt it in such a way that it no longer hurts. Yoga can be strenuous but should never be painful.
Cardamom has been one of the most popular spices for thousands of years throughout the entire Asian and Arabian area. Its subtle, sweetish-spicy aroma predestines cardamom for use in many different foods ranging from sharp curries to spicy Christmas biscuits.
Cinnamon is among the most expensive spices in the world and was supposedly already used as a spice in China in 3,000 B.C. Cinnamon is extracted from the bark of the South-Asian cinnamon tree. It has an aromatic-sweetish taste and contains valuable essential oils.
The orange is the most frequently cultivated citrus fruit in the world. It originally came from Asia and was only introduced to Europe in the 15th century. Its peel contains numerous essential oils and the taste is similar to the fruit pulp in its fruitiness but not quite as sweet and slightly bitter.
