How to Make Fresh Tulsi Tea

Author: Alex Jones


  • Four to six sprigs of fresh tulsi or swap out tulsi for fresh mint, lemon balm, anise hyssop, or another tea herb
  • One quart of water


  • Lay out tulsi sprigs and leaves in a single layer on a clean dish towel or drying rack. Allow to sit for one full day to wilt.
  • Once the herb is wilted, heat water to 190 degrees F or just below boiling.
  • Place the wilted tulsi in a quart canning jar. Pour the hot water over the herbs. Cover the jar with a lid or plate to capture the volatile oils.
  • Steep at least 15 minutes.
  • Strain if desired and drink, or cool further, pour over ice, and enjoy.
