David discovered the potency and the power of this wonderful plant several years ago while developing a medicinal herb garden for an organic farm in New England. Initially wooed by its intoxicating aroma, the flavor of the tea made him a Tulsi lover for life, and he has been passionate about introducing it to others ever since.
Using passive drying techniques and allowing just the right amount of oxidization, we are confident that our Tulsi Tea is better in flavor than any other Holy Basil on the market, plus it hasn’t seen any chemical treatment or travelled thousands of miles to reach your cup. We are happy to offer our Tulsi Holy Basil through Steep of Faith Teas.
