Green Tea with Tulsi

Jump to Recipe

Green Tea Is one of my favorite tea along with Early Grey and Tulsi Teas. I also like Assam Tea and Darjeeling Tea.

This blend of Tulsi leaves and Green Tea leaves is again a favorite of mine. I discovered the Organic India Tulsi Tea products some 3 years ago. They specialize in Tulsi Tea and blends of Tulsi Leaves with Tea, Ginger, Spices etc and other organic products.

Green Tulsi Tea

For the unacquainted Tulsi is the Holy Basil Plant. Tulsi is worshipped in India and is also used as medicinal herb in Ayurveda. For more information on the Tulsi Plant, read this link: Tulsi on Wikipedia. You can grow tulsi plant easily at home. Its a fragile plant but does not require much care. Traditionally tulsi leaves are never boiled in water and I also avoid it.

You can serve green tea hot plain or with some snacks like onion pakora, samosa, aloo tikki, veg sandwich, veg cutlet, vada pav or with nankhatai or cookies. Another tea recipe where I use green tea is Kashmiri kahwa.

Both Tulsi and Green Tea have a lot of health benefits. I can go on and on about the health benefits.

A few benefits:

  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Guards against cough & cold
  • Eliminates toxins

To make a refreshing cup of Tulsi Green tea, you will need Organic India’s Tulsi Green Tea leaves bags.

Green Tulsi Tea Recipe

Boil water. The quantity of water will depend on how many tea servings you want to have. Once the water boils, close the burner. Dip the tea bags in the hot water and let them steep for 2-3 minutes. This will infuse the green tea and tulsi leaves aroma, flavor and taste into the water. Never boil the green tea or tulsi tea bags or leaves in water.

Tulsi Green Tea Recipe

Usually 1 tea bag is used for 1 cup of tea. Now add sugar or sugar cubes. Adding milk is optional. I have added a little milk in this recipe. Enjoy the cuppas of light, refreshing and soothing green tulsi tea.

  1. Hello Dassana, I read somewhere that drinking green tea can trigger headaches and can also be the reason for migraines…I had green tea long back after drinking it, I had bad headache. I want to include green tea in my lifestyle. But I’m scared a little, if it cause headache.
    Could you please share your thoughts on this?

    1. MM, with me its the other way around. if i don’t drink tea, i get headaches. so tea is one of the first drinks i have in the morning. even i have heard, but then each person’s physical constitution is different. you can try for a couple of days. if it does not suit you than drop it.

  2. Is there any difference in health benefits between using green tea leaves and tea bags? Is it safe to add honey as soon as the hot water is poured in the cup ?
    Thank you so much.5 stars

    1. beena, i do not know about the health benefits between using green tea leaves and tea bags. that said, i use both. when i want a more intense flavour, i use leaves, but for a quick and light option, i use tea bags. avoid adding honey to anything hot as honey becomes toxic when heated or when added to anything boiling hot. but you can mix honey with lukewarm water.
