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.

The Most Reliable of Brighteners

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

Comforting notes of cooked apples and cloves, combined with the warmth and sweetness of liquorice root and a hint of aniseed.


Use 1g of leaf per 150ml of water.


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


Infuse for 1-2 minutes, tasting regularly.


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

12p per cup based on 1g of tea per 150ml of water and 3 infusions.

Our beautiful Tulsi is from the Mahila Umang collective - run & led by women.

Located in the state of Uttarakhand, in North Eastern India, bordering Nepal. They operate in two districts within the municipalties of Almora and Ranikhet, 1,600 - 1,800m above sea level.

"We believe in building a sustainable life and ensuring consistent income for rural women. Earlier, women would farm the land, and the crops would be sold through middlemen. Women had to travel a considerable distance through the mountains just to reach the middlemen. Umang provides us with opportunities to become entrepreneurs. We have built self-help groups in all the villages, and the women farmers work within these groups. The fact that women are making and selling their produce, auditing the self-help groups and keeping the books and accounts, make for a sustainable model.

Umang started with only three members in 2001, and now there are 3,000 women who are involved in sustainable farming, producing and selling their own goods. I, along with the others, have become entrepreneurs, bankers and auditors. We are all shareholders in the company, and we use the money we earn for micro-credit, as a bank would. We managed a turnover of around INR 4 crore (over USD 600,000) this year!

For us, sustainability is a long-term solution to the problems of the women farmers. At Umang, we believe in trade, not aid."

Sunita Kashyap, secretary and founder Mahila Umang collective
