If you like chai, you'll love Organic India's naturally caffeine-free Red Chai. Instead of classic black tea, they use rooibos, an aromatic tea leaf from South Africa to make red tea, then blend it with stress-relieving Tulsi and classic chai tea spices like cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, roasted chicory, and nutmeg. Rooibos' flavor is strong, and they balance it expertly with other ingredients to give you something completely unique - and incredibly healthy. A few sips of this rich, delicious tea and you'll fall in love with its distinctive sweet-yet-spicy, full-bodied, nutty taste. Drink on its own (delicious!) or go traditional and add milk and sweetener for a rich, creamy taste.
Rooibos is sweeping the West - and it won't be long until you hear orders for "red espresso," as in South Africa. This healthy herb has low tannin levels compared to fully oxidized black tea or unoxidized green tea and is packed with antioxidants, which can cancel out the cell-damaging effects of free radicals. The combination of these benefits with the antioxidants in Tulsi and the organic chai spices gives your body a dose of adaptogenic power and a digestive boost.
The Tulsi Story: India's "Queen of Herbs"
For more than 5000 years Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil) has been considered India's "Queen of Herbs" and has been revered as one of the most sacred herbs in India, infused with healing power. Hindus view Tulsi (also spelled Tulasi or Thulasi) as a goddess in the form of a plant bestowed with great spiritual and healing powers. According to legend, no amount of gold could outweigh Krishna's power, but a single Tulsi leaf placed on the pan in loving devotion tilted that scale. In India today, Tulsi is still traditionally grown in an earthenware pot in every family home or garden, and the leaves are used to make a delicious and refreshing tea that possesses wonderful health benefits.
As Tulsi traveled west along the early trade routes from the Orient to Europe, it became known to the Christians as "sacred" or "holy" basil as is reflected in its Latin botanical name, Ocimum sanctum. They hailed Tulsi as "The King of Herbs' instead of as a queen, and Holy Basil became routinely included in legends, offerings and worship rituals and was looked on by many as a gift of Christ.
Modern research has classified Tulsi as an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens have been shown to support the body's natural immune system while relieving the body's negative reaction to stress. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicines for thousands of years to promote and maintain wellness. Many adaptogenic herbs have been referred to by herbalists as rejuvenative herbs, qi tonic herbs, rasayanas or restorative herbs. They help the body adapt to environmental, physical and emotional stressors, support normal functions, and restore balance.
Organic India's Tulsi - Holy Basil Formula and certified organic Tulsi Teas include three varieties of Tulsi leaves: Rama, Vana, and Krishna. Each variety has a slightly different look, taste and smell and when combined, create a perfectly balanced herbal infusion with an array of health benefits including:
- Support for the immune system
- Increased stamina and endurance
- Relief and protection from everyday stress
- Abundant antioxidants.
