Holy basil, tulasi or tulsi as it is commonly known, is an aromatic perennial plant in the family Lamiaceae. Tulsi, Hindu for "The Incomparable One," is native to the India and cultivated throughout the Southeast Asia and Africa. This herb has a long history in eastern medicine with many claimed health benefits.

Also use in many cooking dishes for it's light spiciness. All our imported teas start with the finest ingredients. We custom blend and infuse our teas by hand.
