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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
