Tulsi Tea?

Most of you may or may not know that I am very much into alternative foods and medicine. I would rather read about herbs, wheat grass and teas than weight lifting! It is just were my interest lean towards.  I have been reading more and more about Ayurvedic medicine and foods and I keep coming across a tea called Tulsi. Not a new find by any means but something I have never used.  It is also known as Holy Basil which I used before but I have never used it in a tea form.

Does anyone have experience with this tea? What effects did you notice? It is caffeine free and it is supposed to be very good for you!


Here is a video from Dr. Mercola regarding Tulsi......

I do agree on this one, lots of potential advantages that Tulsi offers like it could help boost your respiratory system and may deliver a better antioxidant protection against free-radical and many more. I got all of this from http://organicindia.mercola.com/tulsi-tea.aspx where the listed from which Dr. Mercola's insight about Tulsi! Do you think One tulsi supplement a day is enough? How much do you take then Jen?
