It's cabinetry installation day at my #foodstudio - my heart is pounding http://t.co/TiXQLYT0df
I love tea. When I say I love tea, I mean I was at David’s Tea three times this weekend, and I drink it every single day (I’m drinking Chocolate Chili Chai right now!). I drink it to wake me up and to squash my sweets cravings. Sometimes I just drink it because I’m cold (which is pretty often, I’d probably walk around in a blanket if I could). So when Marni introduced me to Holy Basil tea, I was game to learn about it. She came back from the Longevity Conference talking about it, so it had to be good, right?
Right indeed, this tea is like a prescription in a cup! As soon as I drank it I felt it in every cell. Holy Basil tea is made from the leaves and blossoms of the tulsi plant. It has hundreds of phytochemicals that include antioxidants, anti-bacterials, anti-virals, and immune enhancers. Drinking it balances the metabolism, builds stamina and promotes mental clarity. It is an adaptogen that helps the body deal with stress, and contains vitamin A, C, calcium, zinc, iron and chlorophyll.
Also, it helps to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure; it also promotes respiratory health and improves stamina. As if this wasn’t enough, it helps with digestive and gastrointestinal problems, helps the liver function properly, reduces cell and tissue damage from sun rays, radiation therapy and relieves inflammation from arthritis and other diseases.
Holy Basil tea used to be shown as a sign of affection and hospitality. It’s been an important part of Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Who knew thousands of years ago that a tea would help neutralize dangerous chemicals that contribute to cancer, degenerative diseases and premature aging?
You can find different kinds of Holy Basil tea. It can be made from any of the three tulsi plants: Rama, Krishna, and Vana. We tried the Organic Traditions brand, it was fantastic. Try some, let us know what you think!
