Tulsi Tea: Tulsi is the Sanskrit name for the holy basil plant. It is a member of the mint family and grows wild in India. The traditional medicinal uses for tulsi are many, particularly in the Indian Ayurvedic tradition, but it is primarily known today as an adaptogen — meaning it helps the body cope with stress. Modern research has found that tulsi has many constituents, including those with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Tulsi tea is made from the leaves of the tulsi plant. The most traditional way to prepare it is to infuse the fresh leaf, dried leaf or powder in hot water much the same way you would prepare tea. It can be served as an iced tea or as a hot tea by itself or with other herbs and spices. It is also used in ghee or clarified butter
