How To Make Tulsi Tea At Home?
I prefer making this tea from fresh leaves but you can also make it from dried leaves. Making this tea is very simple. Since I don’t like to boil the leaves, I always steep the leaves in boiling water. I like it unsweetened but you can sweeten with honey, if you prefer. To make your own dried tulsi leaves for making the tea, wash the tulsi leaves, spread them on a plate, sun dry till crisp and store it in an air tight box. This tea can be consumed even daily and can be given to children too.
1. Take fresh tulsi leaves and wash them well to remove all the dirt.
2. Boil water in a pan. Once it comes to a boil, add the fresh tulsi leaves and switch off. Close with a lid and let it steep for a few minutes, strain and sweeten if desired.
3. To make them from dried leaves, dry the leaves in hot sun, spread on a plate.
4. Add the required amount of dried tea leaves in a tea pot and pour over boiling water. Close with the lid, let it steep for 10 minutes and strain.
5. The tea made with fresh leaves is light green in color with a mild smell of fresh tulsi leaves.
- I prefer the tea made from fresh leaves. It has got a beautiful fresh smell and taste to it.
- Try to include this tea during rainy season to keep yourself free from cold and flu.
- Dry the leaves till crisp before storing it in air tight boxes,else it will spoil quickly.
