Holy Basil (Tulsi)
When most people think of “tea” they think of weakly flavored tea made from tea bags, or “mild” flower teas like chamomile.
Medicinal teas are packed with flavor and nutrition! Revise your image of “tea” to be plants infusing their nutrients into water so that you can drink your nutrition. Most taste quite wonderful. You can drink one cup per day of a standard strength (e.g. 1 tsp per 6 ounces of water), or you can make a medicinal strength tea if you are trying to address a particular problem, or trying to ward off a sore throat or cold. At those times, you would make a strong tea and sip it throughout the day. Chamomile is a good example of this — at a normal strength, it is gentle enough to soothe babies or upset stomachs. At a medicinal strength, it has powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-spasmodic, anti-fungal properties and more, and can be taken both internally and as a skin ointment.
We designed our teas to address certain things (like digestive system upset), and customers have found that they have provided other significant benefits to them as a side effect (e.g. skin cleared of acne or rash).
