  The Postman delivered my Holy Basil Tea today so I thought I would blog about it.  The first thing I noticed was the blend is of all three different types of Tulsi.  Krishna Tulsi, Vana Tulsi, and Rama Tulsi, flowers and stems.  I filled a glass with water added the tea bag and stuck it in the Microwave for two minutes, Held it up to my nose it has a very pleasant slightly sweet and peppery smell.  I noticed the Holy Basil/ tulsi tea was a dark green color much darker than the green tea I like to drink.  It tasted quite good with a peppery flavor and seemed even slightly sweet.  Not sure if that was my imagination. lol.  After two glasses I feel uplifted with no jitters.

Holy Basil also known as Tulsi is a sacred plant from india.   For 5000 years considered the ultimate tonic for every thing from the Flu to Radiation Sickness.  I decided to order some in tea form.  Folks from india revere this plant so much that they keep it by their front door as a good luck charm.  I decided to plant some Holy Basil to see how it grows here in Eastern Wa.  It is a tropical plant so when it dies in the Fall I will dry it and use it to make tea!                 

     Here is some more Info from Dr. Ralph Miller:  

reduces stress, enhances stamina, relieves inflammation, lowers cholesterol, eliminates toxins, protects against radiation, prevents gastric ulcers, lowers fevers, improves digestion and provides a rich supply of antioxidants and other nutrients. Tulsi is especially effective in supporting the heart, blood vessels, liver and lungs and also regulates blood pressure and blood sugar." Dr. Ralph Miller, former Director of Research for the Canadian Dept. of Health and Welfare.
