Yogi Tea was founded in 1984 and is based in Springfield, OR.
When a few Yoga students from Southern California adopted the aromatic spiced tea offered by their Indian teacher, they were inspired to create a grassroots tea company that continues to offer quality and delicious teas, with the guiding principle “Feel Good, Be Good, Do Good.”
The original Yogi tea included traditional Ayurvedic spices: black pepper, ginger root, cardamom seed, cinnamon bark and clove bud, which exuded a vibrant taste and aroma that enlivened those who drank it.
These students started developing their own Yogi tea, with packages of dried spices appearing in natural food stores throughout Southern California and then Europe.
Feel Good, Be Good and Do Good with Yogi Tea
This tea company’s products and ventures are guided by these principles, as they believe that the purpose of their business is to serve. Offering specialized herbal formulas with over 60 tea blends, Yogi Teas are now available throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan and Europe.
Dedicated to sourcing premium quality botanicals from around the world, Yogi Tea’s philosophy is rooted in Ayurveda and devoted to wellbeing.

Another feature of Yogi teas is that they are not supplemented with vitamins and minerals, relying on the naturally healthful qualities of the ingredients themselves.
