Tulsi Green Tea
A noble tea that will stand by you in any circumstance.
This is a delicious and soothing blend of Indian green tea and Tulsi, also known as holy basil. The sweet, spicy and floral notes of the basil overlay the mellow astringency of green tea to produce an unexpectedly calming result. A few sharp notes – almost peppery – will be felt at the start, but it rounds off to an undertone of fresh straw that fuses nicely with the rest.
Tulsi is a variety of basil found in India. It is spicier than the Mediterranean kind and it is not normally used for cooking. The locals consider the plant sacred with tremendous healing powers. Scientific studies have indicated that Tulsi is not only very rich in anti-oxidants but has properties that could help in reduction of blood glucose levels and cholesterol.
Three varietals of Tulsi have been used in this blend.
