Making the perfect cup of loose Tulsi Tea is quick, easy and sustainable. These days there is a multitude of exciting tea-brewing equipment available to enhance the experience of making the perfect cup of loose Tulsi tea.
Depending on where you are or how much time you have, you will find the perfect option to suit your needs.
Here’s what you need to know!
Step 1: Boil water in the kettle, to a rolling boil.
Step 2: Choose your equipment! See below for some ideas……
Step 3: Steep 1 teaspoon of Tulsi per cup for 5 – 10 minutes (or longer!). Cover your vessel whilst steeping to ensure you don’t lose any of the goodness of the Tulsi leaf oils (eugenol) in escaping steam, you want to keep that in your cup.
Step 4: Remove the lid and the Tulsi leaves (or strain), and allow to cool to drinking temperature.
Step 5: Sip while savouring the clean, aromatic, energising tea. Notice the hints of lemon and citrus from Vana Tulsi, the slightly spicy tones of Krishna Tulsi and the calm depth of Rama Tulsi.
Step 6: Feel good in the knowledge that every cup of Tulsi tea supports the livelihood of rural family farmers in India, as well as the wellbeing of the planet.
Step 7: Also feel good because you can re-steep, or empty your leaves into the compost – a sustainable practice 😁
