The Holy Basil

Or Tulsi , the "Queen of Herbs" 
known for its medicinal values and antioxidant properties etc etc....


this tea is "herbie" in taste...
and even though Jasmine is added..the "Queen" took centrestage..

I'll take in the "energizing" properties of this tea anytime...:))


what are you having for tea today?

Happy Tea Tuesday!

We had Jasmine tea in Nepal which was the best I have ever had! It is always one of my teas of choice wherever I am. Have a terrific day! Tammy

I love basil and have several kinds of it growing in my garden, including Thai and cinnamon, to name two. So I agree that basil IS the queen of herbs. What wonderful looking tea you have presented us with today. I always enjoy ANY tea you share with us. Have a great Tea Tuesday.

I have never heard of that type of tea .... I personally love "herbie" teas - especially in the wintertime when I am craving springtime. Pretty tea box too - good collage material :)

Happy Tuesday! Kimmie
