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!
