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 a three part blend: hints of lemon and citrus from Holy Basil Vana, the slightly spicy tones of Holy Basil Krishna, and the calm depth of Holy Basil Rama. 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. Trailhead Tea offers the Rama version, which is a milder, mellower, but still herbaceous choice of the three Tulsi varieties. People will often blend tulsi with their black tea in order to get a combined effect.
