Known as Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum), Tulsi is a sacred plant from India used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Tulsi is considered an ‘elixir of life’ providing alchemy to one’s well being.

There are three types of tulsi varietals, each having a distinct flavor: the green leaf (Rama Tulsi), purple leaf (Krishna Tulsi) bears dark green-to-purple leaves and a third, considered the most flavorful and also hardest to grow - wild forest (Vana Tulsi). This loose leaf Tulsi also includes the branches and stems of the plant, considered beneficial to one's health.

Supporters of Small Organic Tulsi Farmers
We work only with small-scale Tulsi growers that need
assurance for their harvests. As such, we provide up-front guarantees to purchase their produce and help sell it through a market-education development approach. As we grow, we envision our ability to help more small-scale and marginal Organic farmers in this process. Most Tulsi is still grown conventionally and the transition to Organics is recent. We hope to be among the few Tulsi companies that are in the forefront of this movement.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other heartier herbs. We recommend using 2 teaspoons of leaf per 8oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes. This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.
Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.
