Tulsi is the Sanskrit name of the “Holy Basil” plant native to Southern Asia, it isn’t anything like the basil we know here in the west, and is part of the mint family. Widely consumed throughout India (much more than coffee!), many families grow their own tulsi plants.
Tulsi is used traditionally in Ayurvedic Medicine as an anti-stress healing herb, meaning that it is anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. In fact, Tulsi has about the same amount of antioxidants as a cup of green tea!
Our Triple Tulsi is a 100% organic blend of three pure tulsi varietals; krishna tulsi, rama tulsi and vana tulsi. Krishna tulsi has purple leaves and is considered the most powerful tulsi for medicinal purposes, rama tulsi has light green leaves and is larger in size. Tulsi has a fresh herbal minty flavor, and calming effect. Our Triple Tulsi has an earthy-minty taste and a richer herbal flavor than our Tulsi Holy Basil, which is also 100% pure.
While it boasts incredible benefits, tulsi tea is not recommended for pregnant women or nursing moms.
