Get fired up this summer with potent, restorative Tulsi! ORGANIC INDIA Tea Infusions add depth, flavor, and a healthful boost to your favorite grilling marinades and sauces. Coconut milk, fresh lime juice, and a concentrate of ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Turmeric Ginger Tea Infusion blend to make a creamy, flavorful marinade with a touch of tanginess in this easy-to-prep, versatile recipe. We love pairing with grilled tofu steaks and a simple mango and red pepper salsa, but the vibrant combination also works for shrimp, fish, and chicken.

ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Turmeric Ginger Tea Infusion harnesses the powers of Tulsi (Holy Basil), used in India for over 5,000 years to support immunity, aid in stress relief, uplift mood, and more. Turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon elevate flavor with hints of earthy spice while supporting a healthy inflammatory response. Including our ORGANIC INDIA Turmeric Formula adds bright golden color while supporting immune and overall health even more. You can also optionally add Trikatu to stoke digestive fire, a 3 spice blend of Ginger, Long Pepper and Black Pepper. As a final bonus, heating the leftover marinade makes for the perfect, saucy complement to your final dish.
