Liquorice has already been known since ancient times. Its sweetening power is about 50 times stronger than that of sugar. It tastes mild-sweetish and bitter-tart.
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.
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.
Whether in the Christmas biscuits, as a curry mixture or in lemonade: The bulbous ginger is among the best-known spice plants in the world. For thousands of years, it has been cultivated in the tropical heat of eastern Asia. It gives many of our YOGI TEA®s a fruity-hot and aromatically spicy taste.
The chicory is also known under the name of blueweed because its sky-blue flowers prefer to grow at the wayside. The flowers of the plant from the asteraceae family, which is native to Europe, northwestern Africa and western Asia, open for just one single day. Its roots taste spicy-tart and give herbal tea mixtures a touch of coffee taste – but without the caffeine.
Cloves are the flower buds of the clove tree and primarily familiar as a spice for both sweet and salty food in the European part of the world. They belong to the myrtle family and have an intensive spicy aroma. They were even worth their weight in gold in both old China and Egypt.
Also called the ""king of spices,"" black pepper is one of the world's most important spices in addition to salt. It originally came from the Indian Malabar Coast and tastes intensive-spicy, ranging from slightly spicy to quite spicy.
The ""queen of spices"" is among the most popular aromas in the world. It belongs to the orchidaceae family and is native to Mexico and Central America. Its subtle taste and elaborate processing make the genuine vanilla into an especially precious spice plant.
Pour 280 ml of freshly boiled water over the teabag. Allow to infuse for 7 minutes or longer for a stronger flavour. Add milk or milk substitute and sweetener to taste.
