Botanical Organic Holy Basil (Rama Tulsi) - from Trailhead Tea, Sedona, Arizona
ORGANIC BOTANICAL LEAVES from a plant found in southern Asia, but mostly from India, where it is considered a goddess that took the form of the plant that has many healing capabilities. We offer the most popular of the three varieties, HOLY BASIL RAMA. It is mild, mellow, herbaceous with slightly spicy tones and the calming depth. Holy Basil is a nickname for Tulsi. Considered for fighting colds, allergies, headache and stomach upset, it has a flavor similar to very mild black pepper. It is considered an adaptogen, due to its ability to modify glucose regulation in the blood, but should never be a replacement for diabetes medication. People will often blend tulsi with their black tea in order to get a combined effect.
