A Cup of Good Health with Tulsi Tea

I am a tea lover.When I was in college we had a tea group and we never left any opportunity to raid the college

canteen and enjoy the tea with hot samosas.
Times have changed so have I, but one thing that has not changed is my love for tea.But yes with a variation, now I Love Tulsi Tea.

Tulsi is also known as basil leaves.Its a wonder herb.Tulsi is known for more than 5,000 years.Its commonly found in almost every household in India.An important symbol in the Hindu religious traditions and is worshiped in the morning and evening by lighting a diya before it. People are generally unaware of its numerous health benefits.

I start my day with Hot Tulsi tea which refreshes my mind and soul, I wonder whats so special about this plant that makes me relax and calms my nerves.Well its an eye opener.Every part of the plant from roots to stem and flower has its significance.It is said that Tulsi is sacred because Brahma resides in the roots, Vishnu resides in the stems and leaves and Rudra resides in the flowering tops.But yes it has healing powers too.
