In an effort to reduce caffeine consumption, we have been relying increasingly on holistic herbal teas to make it through that afternoon slump. Our favorite new panacea is Tulsi Ginger Tea. Tulsi, or holy basil, is one of the most revered herbs in India. It is used in ayurvedic medicine and said to function as an adaptogen. This means if you are stressed out, it will calm you. If you are feeling sluggish, it will give you a boost. Tulsi in combination with uplifting ginger is amazing and delicious. This tea by Organic India delivers the spicy lift of ginger without too strong of a kick. With a bit of honey, it’s a smooth and soothing brew that literally tickles the taste buds. In addition, ginger is also a great digestive, so after a too- heavy lunch or stomach upset over looming deadlines, it offers tummy-settling relief.
