From Yogi Tea

Renew with DeTox

As everyday impurities find their way into our bodies, we may be left feeling tired or out of balance. Yogi DeTox is a gentle way to help the body cleanse itself by aiding the two primary filtering organs, the liver and kidneys. Our tea uses the time-honored purifying herbs burdock and organic dandelion to support the liver. Juniper berry aids kidney function. The traditional Ayurvedic cleansing blend called “trikatu” (ginger, black pepper, and long pepper) aids blood flow, while Indian sarsaparilla adds spicy flavor. When combined with an overall wellness program, DeTox helps bring healthy balance from within.

Feeling the need to eliminate some toxins? We can help. Our DeTox tea brings together burdock and dandelion to facilitate the elimination of impurities. Then, we add Indian sarsaparilla and juniper berry to promote healthy kidney and liver function. Give your body a natural advantage over pollutants and bring healthy balance from within with this effective yet gentle herbal tea.*

GET THE MOST OUT OF EVERY CUP
Drink 1 to 3 cups anytime during the day. For a stronger effect, use 2 tea bags. No more than 10 tea bags should be consumed in a day. Because it has no harsh laxatives or diuretics, DeTox is mild enough to be used every day for up to 30 days.*

Indian food may be my biggest vice. The way I eat curry you’d think there was some sort of famine on the Northwest coast, or something. I’m angry at myself..

Which is why I chose to make this as my first “tea” of the day. I was expecting it to not be pleasant. I’ve had dextox drinks before and while I can’t attest to their life changing cleaning powers I do know they can taste pretty awful. This one is actually nice, like a spiced and more delicate chamomile herbal. The ingredients do not list chamomile so it may be the dandelion? The sarsaparilla root definitely makes me think of rootbeer, which is another thing I appreciate.

I steeped the bag in a cup for ten minutes in boiling water but the result is a very mild, spiced floral concoction that I’d actually be happy to drink often. I don’t know what a Forsythia Fruit or half of the other ingredients are but I guess that’s what Google is for.

The only thing that would’ve made this herbal brew better is magic. Magic to forget about the huge container of veggie korma sitting in the fridge. Magic to ignore the fact that the whole house smells like delicious food. Curry, why are you like this? I should get out of the house for a bit and mail Cavocorax’s matcha parcel.

Thank you Jackie T for this sample!

Question for an Indian food expert from an Indian food "no"bie (that’s like a newbie, but even less experienced!) Is there a particular brand of commercial Indian food fixins’ that you might recommend? We have no local restaurant options, but would like to give curry, butter chicken, etc. a quick try.

CrowKettle

I’m probably the wrong person to ask and have been spoiled on having too many commercial Indian restaurants close by. I don’t have much experience with the ready- made curry pastes, except for Pataks brand tikka masala which was far from amazing. I’ve made curry from scratch a few times but it always comes out a little different. I loosely follow various online recipes and will tweak the spices and “fat content” based on how rich and spicy I want it. Butter chicken recipes tend not to make the healthiest dishes and you have play around with the parameters.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/easy-indian-butter-chicken/ (I’m sure there are healthier ways to make butter chicken)
http://jeenaskitchen.blogspot.ca/2010/01/butter-chicken-recipe-murgh-makhani.html (I haven’t tried this one yet)

Hopefully other people on here will have more useful advice and experience with butter chicken and curry! I’m still learning how to cook. :)

I haven’t really tried any packaged curries or even pre-made spice mixes as I pretty well always make my own and even then I don’t have a fixed recipe. So I can’t really help you with a recommendation. I mostly ate as a vegetarian in India, though I did have some mutton curry, some fish and some tandori chicken at parties. I have tried some recipes from this website before and they were decent, http://www.khanapakana.com/recipe-search/s/butter%20chicken/t/e . It has recipes from all over the Indian subcontinent. Jain recipes do not contain any root vegetables, South Indian curries are often sweeter and may include coconut. Rahjastani and Punjabi curries can be very hot. My favourite curry is probably Palak(Saag) Paneer ( spinach and a fresh cheese). Have fun exploring.

OMGsrsly

I use recipes from showmethecurry.com. They have YouTube videos, but the sound isn’t always that great. However, the recipes I’ve tried have been fantastic. I’m spoiled like CrowKettle, and I also have a fabulous Indian restaurant 1.5 blocks from my apartment…

CrowKettle

Palak Paneer is one of my favourite curries too but I’ve heard it can be time consuming to make! All of these links to curry (and other food) recipes are definitely challenging my willpower here.. :/

yyz

It’s not really, and if you can’t find paneer, you can either use drained and compressed cottage cheese, or the fresh cheese you can find in some stores specializing in Latin American goods. I have a cookbook that has a recipe for making paneer as well but I have never tried it.

Funny thing about Yogi- they’ll make a tantalizingly delicious blend full of herbs that are horrendously bad for you (looking at YOU, Kava Stress Relief!) And then make a terrible-tasting blend full of herbs that are good for you.

Like this one. Which I am only drinking because of this afternoon’s kava scare.

Here’s to a happy liver and unhappy taste buds tonight. Bottoms up.

In the hopes of expunging all insalubrious humors from my body, I prepared a cup of Yogi DeTox tea. It tasted fine. Now it’s time for a bath, along with a follow-up cup!

I wish you success in your purification efforts!

A spicy, peppery brew, but slightly sweet. It makes me think of root beer blended with cinnamon, which ain’t much of a surprise since one of the ingredients is sarsaparilla root. It’s not bad. In fact, I suspect my boyfriend would enjoy it quite a bit as he’s a huge root beer fan. There’s also a strong licorice note.

It’s a bagged tea. A bagged tisane, I should say, since there aren’t any tea leaves here.

I’ve got a persistent cough at the moment, so if this could just pull out whatever toxins are causing the cough, that would be just swell!

Suzi

As a follow-up, I feel that I should mention that
A/ Coughing did let up for several hours after drinking this tea, although this certainly could be merely the effect of warm liquid on a sore throat
B/ I did not notice any increased cleaning out of the internal system, but the package advised something like 5-6 cups of this stuff a day, and I had only 2.

takgoti

My brother and I used to like to get sarsaparilla root beer in the “real” bottles so we could stumble around and pretend that we were drunk. We did it in a restaurant one time, and I think that we thoroughly offended a couple of people by making them think our parents had let their 7-9 year old children get staggering drunk. Helped that my brother’s always been able to burp on cue.

I’m not sure how I feel about root beer flavored tea, though. I think I’d miss the carbonation. Hope you’re back to 100% soon!

Hyrulehippie

@Suzi- For whatever reason, you’re starting to feel better, so that’s definitely good!

@takgoti- That’s an amusing story. I don’t think I even knew what alcohol was when I was that age.

I’m not an expert on tea, but the natural sweetness and spicy notes of this tea has made me care about what’s in my cup! It’s veeeeery smooth.

I’ve joined Steepster to get recs on teas that I’ll enjoy as much (and hopefully more!) than Yogi Detox. Enjoy in good health!

Another herbal I’m adding to my routine for a while to help with winter fatigue. Yogi offers their Detox versions in a berry and peach flavor also, but check the labels carefully – there are differing levels of ingredients in each. The peach flavor appealed to me, but it had lower % of the ingredients I was looking for (dandelion root, for example). By law, ingredients on labels have to be listed in order of % of the total (for those who weren’t aware).

The aroma is heavenly. I don’t so much get the sarsparilla as I get the caramom and cinnamon coming through. Licorice root adds a sweetness in the sip, and the pepper adds a kick to it. The pepper was a surprise – I like adding pepper as a savory enhancer to balance the sweet in different things, chocolate and so forth.

The other thing I’m noticing with Yogi teas is that the steeping time/strength doesn’t seem to affect the taste especially. I put 2 bags in a 4-cup teapot – intentionally didn’t want a super-strong infusion, but the result was still a peppery sweetness.

It’s enjoyable, whether you’re drinking it for health or for taste. Reminiscent of holiday spice teas.

On a day when I already did a Detox yoga routine (Ana Brett/Ravi Singh- highly recommended; try Amazon.com) I though this couldn’t hurt. And Yogi is letting you send free samples to friends right now via their website so I got to pick this out courtesy of Kristin.

I can’t speak much for the effectiveness of this in actually detoxing my body, but it tastes bearable (I like the Peach version better though.) It’s almost peppery, with a slightly sweet background note. It’s definitely quintessentially ‘herbal tea’. I might actually try a box of this, and if I do I’ll update about whether I notice any actual effects. I’d love to drink a bag every time I do the detox yoga routine.

I love this stuff! My only problems are it dries out my mouth and you aren’t supposed to use it for prolonged usage. Great flavor and it makes me feel healthier

Though the taste gets some getting used to, this tea does make me feel healthier and more detoxified when I drink it regularly.

I don’t know why, but I’ve always been drawn towards detox blends. When done right, they are gentle on the body and I notice I feel a little better after drinking them (in comparison, serious detox blends are seriously bitter and make you feel sick). Just like other detox teas, the package says to not drink continuously for longer than a month. With that in mind, this tea isn’t one to drink simply for the flavor, though it is still a tasty blend. The sarsaparilla is quite noticeable which blends in well with the other spices. Licorice root prevents this blend from tasting bitter. Overall, it’s a pleasantly medicinal root beer with a number of spices thrown in.
