There are so many tulsi tea benefits! In fact, super-yummy tulsi tea is one of my favorite ways to enjoy holy basil. In this episode, I’m giving you my three most-loved tulsi tea recipes. I’m also sharing some important holy basil side effects you need to know about before making tulsi tea a part of your life.

(By the way, this is the second half of a two-part series on holy basil. In case you missed it, I’ve included the link for the first half in the resources section below.)

After listening in to this episode, you’ll know:

► How to grow and harvest your own holy basil (tulsi)

► How to recognize high-quality dried holy basil if you’d rather not grow it yourself

► Who should not take holy basil

► Two important tips for working with holy basil if you’re diabetic

► Three ways to make tulsi tea (plus lots of tips so you can enjoy the maximum tulsi tea benefits!)
