5 Min Read

I love my Yogi teas, and of course, my Celestial Seasonings, which I drank as a little girl, but I also love trying out new teas.

I discovered Tulsi Tea in the grocery store the other day. I love herbal infusions, and when I saw the new display from Organic India of a nice variety of flavors of teas, I purchased a box of the Peppermint flavor to try this new brand of tea.

I love my Yogi teas, and of course, my Celestial Seasonings, which I drank as a little girl, but I also love trying out new teas.

This morning at breakfast I made a pot of Tulsi Peppermint and I must say that I really like the flavor. It’s deeper and richer than just plain Peppermint. I usually drink my tea unsweetened so that I can appreciate the full flavor of the tea. As I sipped and savored the new experience, I read the box.

I learned that Tulsi Tea is a 5,000-year-old herb that is grown in India. It’s held sacred by people of the Hindu religion, and many households grow the beautiful, blue or lavender floral herb in earthen pots in their homes.

“Leaves, flowers, fruits, root, branches and the main stem and everything about tulsi is sacred; even the soil under the tulsi plant is holy.” –excerpt from the Padmapurana, an ancient(5000 yr. old healing text from India).

The people of India hold Tulsi or Holy Basil so sacred because it has so many amazing health benefits. It’s described as “Stress relieving and energizing,” but here’s a link to an article that outlines, 15 Benefits of the Holy Basil (Tulsi).

On the label, Organic India says, “All our products promote genuine wellness and are made with love.

The product you hold in your hands is one link in a chain of love, respect and connectedness between our farmers and you.” That’s an amazing statement and one that makes me happy to be a customer and to be enjoying their delicious tea.

So, whether you drink it warm as a healthful tonic, or for a refreshing glass of iced tea to accompany your healthy snacks, Tulsi tea is a wonderful herbal infusion that you should add to your tea collection.
