About House Blend Tulsi:

We wanted to offer a balanced brew that would provide Tulsi lovers a flavored choice for any time of day. Combining Purple Leaf and Green Leaf Tulsi, our Tulsi blend is full-bodied, smooth, and refreshing. It is caffeine-free and can be enjoyed hot or iced.

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’ that provides alchemy to one’s 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 the 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 farmers in this process.

Ingredients: Green Leaf (Rama) Tulsi leaves and stems, Purple Leaf (Krishna) Tulsi leaves and stems.
