About Green Leaf Rama Tulsi:

Green Leaf Tulsi is known for its fresh, mellow flavor with earthy undertones and a strong taste of clove. This variety of Tulsi is found in the southern states of India. Caffeine-free.

Known as Holy Basil (Ocimum Sanctum), Tulsi is a sacred plant from India used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Tulsi is considered an elixir-like infusion that promotes well-being. There are three tulsi varietals, each with a distinct flavor: the Green Leaf (Rama Tulsi), Purple Leaf (Krishna Tulsi), which bears dark green-to-purple leaves, and a third, considered the most flavorful and also hardest to grow – Wild Forest (Vana Tulsi).

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.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Green Leaf (Rama) Tulsi leaves and stems.
