To Make An Individual Cup of Tea

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.

To Make A Pot of Tea

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.

To Make 1 Quart of Iced Tea

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.

About Tulsi

Throughout India, Tulsi is considered "The Queen of Herbs" and is revered as a sacred plant infused with healing power. Traditionally grown in an earthen pot in every family home or garden, Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil) makes a delicious and refreshing tea that possesses wonderful health benefits that support the body's natural immune system while relieving the body's negative reaction to stress.* Tulsi's remarkable life-enhancing qualities, noted repeatedly in ancient Indian scriptures dating back 5,000 years, are now here for you to fully enjoy. Namaste!

Product Reviews

  1. Excellent Choice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2015

    If you are looking for a quality tea then you need not look any further. Organic India grows and distributes the best quality tea I have had the pleasure of drinking and at prices that are more than reasonable. I value product reviews and they often are a huge influence on my decision to purchase a product. As a result, I felt compelled to write this review to share my own personal experience with this brand of tea, so that others may share in the pleasure of drinking such a fine cup of tea.

  2. Peace in a cup! 5 Star Review

    I love Organic India's Tulsi tea. I feel peaceful, grounded, and well cared for when I drink this wonderful tea. I also love to add it to my rice when cooking.

  3. Go To Staple in Our Home 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2015

    This tea tastes good and makes me feel good. I prefer loose tea because I can taste the bags in bagged tea. This tea goes down easily and feels good, hot or iced. It avoids the tart and flowery tastes so common in herbal teas, but does not have the bitterness common in real tea. I can serve this to health conscious friends as well as more main stream friends. It is absolutely the best. I feel like I am treating myself when I sit down to a cup of freshly brewed Tulsi. It is a good "centering" tea. It is also my husband's favorite tea. I often make tea from our own home grown herbs, but Organic India Tulsi is still our favorite.

  4. Love this tea 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2015

    I blend this with ginger root to make a tea so rich and satisfying I rarely drink coffee. Holy Basil makes all other herb teas pale by comparison. They have just changed the packaging to sturdy paper which means easy recyclying.

    I ordered this product based on the research I had done on this herbal tea. The product arrived on time and was well packaged. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a great all rounder herbal tea, probably the best on the market at a great price.

  7. Great Tea 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2014

    This is my second order in 8 months!!! I shared the tea with a best friend and a co-worker, and they both ordered some for themselves!! Good quality product. Fresh!!! Better than store bought bags. Keep up the good work Organic India.

  8. Are there 10 STARS?!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2014

    Where have you been all my life Holy Basil tea?!! This tea is so tasty. I actually make a morning tea for work which includes a half teaspoon of Triphala, and a tea ball of the loose leaf Holy Basil Blend. Love, love it!

    I read in an herb book of mine that Holy Basil is a "vehicle" for helping to release the benefits of other herbs in a tea blend.

    My next herb to blend with this 10 star Holy Basil is Brahmi or Bacopa.

    I am just about ready to give up my one cup of coffee in the very early morning!!!
