A sublime herbal tea, fresh from India. Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil) is considered a sacred plant by Hindus. It is used in Ayurvedic practice to relieve anxiety and tension. It is also extremely delicious.

Grown by a group of organic herb gardens across the north of India from Gujarat, across Madhya and Uttar Pradesh, it's picked and dried when the herb is at its best, and packed immediately to preserve freshness and bright intensity.

Naturally caffeine free.

Delicious-Try this tea!

I've never tried Indian Tulsi before and was completely delighted. I will be ordering more. Indian Tulsi has a more robust flavor than other herbs such as mint or chamomile. I tasted licorice, clove and grassy type flavors in this wonderful herb. I brewed my Indian Tulsi with RTC's Wild Rooibos, a cinnamon stick, some star anise, cardamom pods and fennel seeds. I called it my "Christmas Tea".

Light and tasty

Interesting bright unusual taste and smell, kind of fresh but not in a mint fresh sense, different. Good on its own, without any food or desserts.

This blend is a perfectly balanced concoction of tea and herbs that's a guaranteed pick-up. It's exciting in the mouth. It purports to have tranquilizing qualities, but I couldn't say because I just keep drinking cup after cup and feeling happier with every one.

Tulsi has a lovely flavor

I enjoyed the gentle flavor of Tulsi so much that I've made it a regular event in my afternoons.

Tasting Notes

A creamy mouthfeel with notes of cinnamon bark, cloves, tomato stem, a subtle basil note and a soft mentholic finish. It reminds us of freshly baked German Christmas cookies.

If left for a longer infusion you can find deep cedar wood.


Use 2g of leaf per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 100°C (212°F) water.


Infuse for 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this herb at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

37p per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
