Health Benefits of Tulsi Tea

Raspberry Hibiscus tea

IMG_1651I love tea, hot tea, iced tea, blends of tea -just love tea! I also love green tea blended with other flavors since I don’t like it so much by itself. In looking for yummy tea blends in the store, I found that almost all of them had undesirable ingredients, like raspberry flavor, citric acid or some other ‘flavor’. I’ve read that anything that contains ‘flavor’ should be questioned. Especially, raspberry flavor -did you know that it comes from the excretion of beaver anal glands? Yup! Now, I’m all about the whole ‘head-to-tail’ thing, and not wasting any part of an animal. But beaver anal gland juice? No thanks!

The nice thing about this tea is the benefits from the tea and herbs, along with the slight boost from the green tea. It’s a perfect mid-afternoon pick me up! And quite refreshing to boot! I buy all my tea and herbs in bulk these days, it’s much more cost effective in the long run. I do have a local health food store that sells most of the ingredients for this tea blend. However, I prefer to purchase my tea and herbs from my affiliate partner Mountain Rose Herbs when I can and buy in bulk, as it saves money in the long run.

HibiscusRaspberryTeaDried Raspberries can be purchased many places, I’ve gotten mine from Trader Joe’s in 1.2 ounce bags. Make sure you include the little pillow pack or fresh pack that comes in the bag of dried raspberries in your jar of tea blend. This will help the raspberries from losing their crisp dryness.

6 teaspoons green tea (make sure to use a green tea that you like – I used Gunpowder Green Tea)

6 teaspoons chamomile (optional)

1/2 cup hibiscus flowers

6 teaspoons orange peel (optional)

1-2 ounces dried raspberries, crushed a bit

6-8 teaspoons green leaf stevia (optional)

Blend all together in a mason jar, (make sure to include the little white fresh pack from your bag of dried raspberries) place the lid on and shake to combine. Use about 4-6 teaspoons to make one quart of tea if you are going to make it iced. Steep 3 minutes -no more! Or use 1 heaping teaspoon to have a cup of hot hibiscus raspberry tea. Enjoy!
