Tulsi Masala Chai


Ingredients: Organic CTC BOP Assam, Organic Cardamom, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Ginger, Organic Cloves & Organic Tulsi (Holy Basil) Leaf

Herbal Properties:

- CTC BOP Assam Tea (black Tea): Black tea is a variety of tea that is more oxidized than the green, oolong and white varieties. All four varieties are made from leaves of Camellia sinensis. Black tea is generally stronger in flavor and contains more caffeine than the less oxidized teas.

All our Black Chai blends are made with Organic & Fair Trade CTC BOP Assam tea as a base. CTC stands for Cut, Tear & Curled and BOP for Broken Orange Pekoe.

It is the most used tea in India, not because it is less expensive than a SFTGFOP or Super Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (I bet you can repeat that 10 times without messing up!) but because it brews a rich & strong cup of tea that blends perfectly well with spices, milk and sweetener.

- Cardamom: A household spice that is commonly used to support digestion without increasing Heat.* It has expectorant and diaphoretic actions.* The mucus forming properties of milk are neutralized when cardamom is added to it.*

- Cinnamon: This warming spice is traditionally used in cold formulas as an expectorant and diaphoretic (sweat inducing).* Due to its warming property, cinnamon is known to promote digestion.*

- Cloves: An energizing herb,* cloves are an effective stimulant and aromatic for the lungs and stomach.* Cloves are used extensively in Ayurvedic herbology.

- Ginger: In Ayurvedic and Chinese herbology, Ginger is known to have heating, cleansing, toning and stimulating properties.* Ginger promotes digestion, relieves abdominal discomfort, dispels chills and it is also useful for relieving respiratory complaints due to phlegm and arthritic conditions due to coldness.*

- Tulsi (Holy Basil) Holy Basil is commonly grown in Hindu homes and it is a sacred plant in the Hindu religion. In fact a Hindu household is considered incomplete if there is not a Tulsi plant in the courtyard.

Holy Basil has been used for thousands of years as a prime herb in ayurvedic treatment, and is mentioned in the Charak Samhita (the central teaching of ayurvedic medicine) which was written at least two thousand years ago.

In Ayurvedic Medicine, it is used to fight common colds and flu. It is known to promote mental clarity, which is one of the reason why is used by Yogis to enhance their meditation practices. It is also considered an adaptogen, which means that it assists the body adapt to stress (environmental, physical, or chemical), restore balance in the body, and normalize body functions.*

Customer Reviews

Tulsi adds a very cool refreshing flavor to the Masala chai. Review by Gloria
I really enjoyed the tast of this one. Tulsi adds a very cool refreshing flavor to the Masala chai. An nice plus is that it also significantly reduce my seasonal allergy symptoms. (Posted on 3/16/11)
So far this season I have not been sick! Review by Lanora
This tea is different as well as refreshing. The Tulsi (Holy Basil) is almost minty and when you are accustom to Yogic Chai's regular Masala Chai it makes for a nice change.

I was happy to see a blend with Holy Basil in it because I have tried homeopathic medicines with this herb to help fight colds and always felt it helped me shorten the duration, now I can take this chai as a preventative measure.

So far this season I have not been sick (knock on wood) while I usually have had the flu at least once by now so far nothing!

I really do contribute my good health with my switch from coffee to Yogic Chai's wonderful black chais in the morning and the Rooibos blends at night.

I usually will make a fresh pot before I go to bed and it's all ready to go in the morning so it's no fuss when I just wake up! (Posted on 1/21/10)
