BLACKBERRY APPLE CIDER DIGESTIVE AWAKENING Sips by YOGI
Energize your digestive system with Yogi Blackberry Apple Cider Digestive Awakening tea. Tart Apple Cider Vinegar, popularly used to wake up the digestive system, pairs with naturally warming Ginger, used for centuries in Ayurveda to help support healthy digestion. Blackberry flavor is added to impart bright and fruity notes to this delicious, caffeine-free tea. Begin each day with a tasty cup of Yogi Blackberry Apple Cider Digestive Awakening tea to help support healthy digestion.
Yogi Tea's story began in 1969 when Yogi Bhajan, an inspired and inspiring teacher of holistic living, started teaching yoga in the West. He shared with his students the wisdom and knowledge of healthy living and the beneficial properties of herbs that he had mastered in India, all while serving a comforting and aromatic spiced tea they affectionately named “Yogi Tea.” Intrigued by the complex flavor and inherent health benefits of the unique blend, it wasn’t long before several of the yogi’s students were inspired to brew their own “Yogi Tea." In 1984, this grassroots endeavor blossomed into the Yogi Tea Company; now Yogi®, which offers over 40 herbal, green and black wellness tea blends, many of which are created using the five original Yogi spices.
Yogi was founded on the belief of "Feel Good, Be Good, Do Good," which serves as their guiding principle.They are committed to providing a positive workplace for their employees and to making healthy, organic and natural teas that are accessible to many people. We love that their teas are inspired by a combination of the holistic teachings of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Herbalism!
