Holy basil, also commonly known as Tulsi or “The Incomparable One” has been revered in India for centuries. It is considered to be one of the most sacred plants in the Ayurvedic Tradition. Tulsi leaves were traditionally used for religious, ceremonial and medicinal purposes. This adaptogenic herb is one of the key rejuvenating tonics in Ayurveda.
For centuries, sages and yogis have used the herb before meditation in order to calm the mind and encourage a blissful state. Organic Traditions Holy basil tea is a unique blend of three delicious Holy basil varieties: Krishna purple Tulsi leaf, Rama green Tulsi leaf and Vana lemon Tulsi leaf resulting in a refreshingly fragrant basil-citrus Flavour. It is a wonderful tea to incorporate into the daily diet with many health promoting benefits.
