You will need a "tea basket" that inserts into a cup, a "tea ball" or an individual empty "tea bag." Place a tablespoon of Tulsi tea leaves into the tea basket, ball or tea bag, and place in your favorite mug. Bring clean fresh water to boil, and pour boiling water over Tulsi tea leaves in your cup. Cover and let steep for 5 - 10 minutes. Remove tea basket, ball or bag, and enjoy. Use more tea leaves for a stronger flavor and less for a milder flavor, as per your taste. Please note: The stronger the tea, the more potent the benefits.
Use one full tablespoon of tea per cup. Place the tea leaves in your teapot, and pour fresh boiling water over the tea leaves. Let the tea steep for 5 - 10 minutes, and pour through a small strainer directly into the cup. Use more tea for a stronger flavor and less for a milder flavor, as per your taste. Please note: The stronger the tea, the more potent the benefits.
Pour 2 cups of boiling water over 8 teaspoons of tea, cover and add sweetener if desired. Infuse for 20 minutes. Strain and add 2 cups of cold water, and refrigerate. Pour over ice to serve.

I love the original tulsi and typically drink at least two cups a day, one when i wake up and one before bed. I find it has a very pleasant taste and aroma, and is both energizing in the morning and relaxing in the evening. There is no stimulant effect as with caffeinated drinks.
I used to be a green tea drinker until I discovered Tulsi!

I had never heard of Tulsi tea before until I stumbled across it on the internet. I did a search for the best Tulsi and landed right here at Organic India. When I first opened the can I thought it smelled like a spice that should go in the spice rack. After I brewed the tea and took a sip, I was hooked. So if you are reading this and curious about it, go ahead and try some. You won't be disappointed.

This is the fullest flavor Holy (Sacred) Basil tea I have tied. I believe I have tried them all! Just opening the can is a burst of delicious aroma. So soothing and satisfying. In the morning, I like to mix it with the Lemon Ginger Tulsi.

I have to say that when I went on a search for holy basil tea, I was skeptical of finding anything good. I was impressed with this tea, though. It has a good flavor, and I like that it is all natural. A good price and fast shipping made for a wonderful product. I will continue to buy here.
