WHAT IS TULSI?
Tulsi is a caffeine-free herbal tea from India. It is a close relative of basil in the mint family. Tulsi has a full body and a floral aroma.
Tulsi is well known as an anti-stress herb. When we experience physical or mental stress, our bodies produce a hormone known as cortisol. Chronic excess cortisol has been linked to many ailments, including heart disease and obesity. Tulsi has been identified as an excellent moderator of cortisol.
Tulsi is a very important herb in the Ayurvedic medicinal system (read more).
Tulsi is easy to brew with tea bags or as a loose tea. Use boiling water. Let tulsi steep at least ten minutes to extract its full flavor and benefits.
We source our organic tulsi from a network of small fair-trade farms in the state of Kerala in southwest India.
