About Purple Leaf Tulsi – 8 oz:

Also Known as Holy Basil (Ocimum Sanctum), Tulsi is a sacred plant from India used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. This is the Purple leaf tulsi varietal (Krishna Tulsi). The purple leaf Tulsi is known for its slightly spicy, peppery flavor with cinnamon undertones. Tulsi is caffeine-free.

We work only with small-scale Tulsi growers that need an 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.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Purple Leaf (Krishna) Tulsi leaves and stems.
