Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

To make Tulsi Leaf into a tea: use 1 cup of boiling water to 1-2 teaspoonful’s of Tulsi Leaf. Leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes.


Drink 1-2 times a day for desired effects.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

Indigo Herbs Tulsi Tea originates from Ocimum tenuiflorum plants grown in India and nurtured adhering to strict regulations. After the plant reaches full maturity the leaves are harvested from the main stalk. The Holy Basil leaves are then thoroughly cleaned and selected to make sure that there is no leaf damage or pollutants before being freeze dried. The freeze drying process consists of blasting the leaf matter with very cold air insuring that no chemical constituents are lost and all chlorophyll is still contained within the leaf.

100% Pure Ocimum tenuiflorum dried leaf and stem

Tulsi has been found to make the blood thinner in some individuals. Not recommended to be taken by pregnant women or those who have scheduled surgery.

Great tasting tea. Slightly sweet and soothing. I haven’t been drinking it long enough to see any benefits (5 days) but shipping and piece were good

I have only just started using Tulsi tea. I was drawn to the health benefits. This tea is very palatable and makes a nice brew! Good seal on the bag to retain freshness.
