The secret’s out: small, simple habits can yield big, lifelong results. Start your day with a lemony lift that boosts wellness bigtime as it refreshes. Waking up with lemon water has been shown to aid digestion, prevent oxidation, promote healthy liver function, and more. In this recipe, our ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Lemon Ginger Tea adds powerful adaptogenic herb Tulsi to the citrusy mix while providing a beautifully flavorful base for this “good morning” elixir.
Tulsi, “Queen of Herbs”, has been revered in India for more than 5,000 years for its ability to aid in stress relief and uplift mood, support immunity, promote natural detoxification, and more. Our ORGANIC INDIA Turmeric Formula adds even more to that healthy punch. Curcumin, a potent antioxidant in turmeric, is lauded for supporting a healthy inflammatory response, joint health, heart and cardiovascular health, and cognition, to name a few. All these benefits and more in just one drink, and you don’t need a juicer, or even a blender to make it! Just brew, stir, chill (or not), and pour!
1 Teaspoon raw honey or sweetener of choice, optional
Steep ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Lemon Ginger tea bag in boiled water with sliced ginger and half the lemon, sliced, for 10 minutes to yield a strong brew. Remove ginger and lemon slices or strain through a sieve.

Serve to taste–over ice, garnished with fresh mint and lemon slices, room temp, or warm!
