From The Tao of Tea

Native Name: Vana Tulsi

Origin: India

Introduction: Also known as Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum), Tulsi is a sacred plant from India used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Tulsi is considered an ‘elixir of life’ providing alchemy to one’s well being.

There are three types of tulsi varietals, each having a distinct flavor: the green leaf (Rama Tulsi), purple leaf (Krishna Tulsi) bears dark green-to-purple leaves and a third, considered the most flavorful and also hardest to grow – wild forest (Vana Tulsi). This loose leaf Tulsi also includes the branches and stems of the plant, considered beneficial to one’s health. Caffeine free.

Supporters of Small Organic Tulsi Farmers
We work only with small-scale Tulsi growers that need
assurance for their harvests. As such, we provide up-front guarantees to purchase their produce and help sell it through
a market-education development approach. As we grow, we envision our ability to help more small-scale and marginal Organic farmers in this process. Most Tulsi is still grown conventionally and the transition to Organics is recent. We hope to be among the few Tulsi companies that are in the forefront of this movement.

Flavor Profile: Very fragrant, notes of kafir limes, orange, mint and cloves.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Wild Forest (Vana) Tulsi leaves and stems.

Certified Organic by: Quality Assurance International (QAI)

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tisane to try.

The aroma prior to brewing was very light and herbaceous, with hints of mint. After infusion, I noticed a distinct medicinal quality to the aroma as I poured the tisane, in fact, the smell reminds me of vapor rub. Not exactly what I would consider a delicious beverage – vapor rub – but, once I managed to get over the scent of it and actually take a sip, I found myself taking another and another… at first, I think it was mostly curiosity, and then as I continued to sip, I found myself enjoying it.

This isn’t my first Tulsi, but most of the other Tulsi I’ve had have either been a mix of the three types of the Holy Basil, or it has been Rama or Krishna Tulsi, I’ve had very little experience with Vana Tulsi in a pure version of it like this. It has a very powerful aroma, almost off-putting at first, but, now, it is really quite good. Spicy, with notes of of citrus, and lovely hints of mint.

I really like this more than I thought I would when I first smelled the brewed tisane.


This sounds really good!


Certainly sounds interesting.

Nice Tulsi – unflavored but still natural citrus notes come thru :)
