Dangerously organic!


Eric gave me some of this Holy Basil tea. The striking thing is its taste. It's delicious.
Nearly as surprizing is how far it goes. I made a pot using one tea
bag. It's extremely strong. It easily yields several cups from a tea
bag. Wikipedia describes Holy Basil as "

Ocimum tenuiflorum (also tulsi, tulasī) is an aromatic plant in the family Lamiaceae which is native throughout the Old World tropics and widespread as a cultivated plant and an escaped weed.[1] It is an erect, much branched subshrub 30-60 cm tall with hairy stems and simple opposite green leaves that are strongly scented. Leaves have
petioles, and are ovate, up to 5 cm long, usually slightly toothed. Flowers are purplish in elongate racemes in close whorls.[2] There are two main morphotypes cultivated in India—green-leaved (Sri or Lakshmi tulsi) and purple-leaved (Krishna tulsi).[3]"


I hear its easy to grow. Nice!
