What Is Tulsi
Tulsi, also called Holy Basil, is one of the most sacred plants in India and is considered “The Queen of the Herbs” for its restorative and spiritual properties. Also spelt Tulasi or Thulasi, it has been used for thousands of years to support a healthy response to stress, natural detoxification, and restore balance and harmony. Our infusions are not only delicious and organic, they are nature’s perfect rejuvenative.
Combining Tulsi with green tea deeply enhances each other’s remarkable health benefits including an abundance of potent phytonutrients and antioxidants, which protect the body from damaging free radicals. These compounds naturally supports the immune & cardiovascular systems and promote detoxification.
Tulsi (Holy Basil): Benefits to Body & Mind
Modern research has classified Tulsi as an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens have been shown to support the body’s healthy reactions to stress. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in the Ayurvedic tradition for thousands of years to promote and maintain wellness. Many adaptogenic herbs have been referred to by herbalists as rejuvenative herbs, qi tonic herbs, rasayanas or restorative herbs. They help the body adapt to environmental, physical and emotional stressors, support normal functions and restore balance.
How to Brew your Tulsi
Pour freshly boiled water over an infusion bag in a cup. Cover your mug with a lid (or a small plate) and let the infusion bag steep for 5 – 10 minutes (or longer).
To double the strength add 2 bags, it is best doubled when serving iced.
Please remember that Ayurveda recommends consuming hot or warm drinks for optimal digestion. To continue your daily wellness practice over Summer you can consume Tulsi at room temperature by leaving your tea to cool. If adding ice to cool your drink, ensure it is melted before consuming.
