Tulsi Ginger Spice tea is a delightful blend of mint, citrus, and warming spice notes. Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil or the Elixir of Life, offers both a distinctive flavor and revitalizing adaptogenic benefits.
Warming, Refreshing, Revitalizing
This fragrant brew delivers smooth, minty undertones and warming cinnamon top notes. A zing of ginger adds just enough of a kick to brighten your senses, no caffeine needed.
Tulsi has a bold aroma and a distinctive, sometimes even bitter flavor that’s unlike anything else. By using a blend of three different types (Krishna, Rama, and Vana), we deliver the best of tulsi’s stimulating, revitalizing adaptogenic properties, all in a delicious cup of tea unlike any other.
Sourcing our Tulsi
We source all our tulsi from India. The freshly-sheared bundles give a minty, refreshing scent. The bundles are then dried and blended with organic ginger and lemon myrtle to create a blend that’s both familiar and new at the same time.
Tulsi is a unique herb native to Southeast Asia. It’s been used in Indian medicine for centuries. Practitioners use its fresh flowers to treat bronchitis, its leaves and seeds for malaria, and the essential oil to treat insect bites. And, most importantly here, its tea is used for its protective and regenerative qualities.

- Health Benefits
Reduces Cholesterol and Aids Weight Loss
Tulsi reduces stressors to the metabolic system, which in turn helps with cholesterol and weight loss. Animal studies have linked tulsi to reduced bad cholesterol and increased good cholesterol.
Thanks to tulsi’s status as an adaptogen, it’s an anti-inflammatory and delivers a powerful dose of antioxidants. Inflammation can affect a wide range of health concerns, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, anxiety, and chronic stress.
Improves Digestive Health
Tulsi has protective properties for the stomach. It can help reverse the effects of ulcers brought on by stress. It also naturally increases your stomach’s resistance by decreasing stomach acid levels, increasing healthy mucus secretion and mucus cell production, and extending the life of those mucus cells. These are all necessary for healthy and comfortable digestion.
Increases Insulin Sensitivity
Insulin is a key factor in how the body regulates its metabolism and rations out its own energy stores. Cinnamon has been shown to greatly increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin, which helps insulin work more effectively. This can help reduce blood sugar levels. In turn, this can help reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
