Click here to read customer feedback for this tea!

Basil (Ocimum sanctum, Holy Basil) is also known as the Tulsi herb. Known firstly as an anti-depressant, this herb speaks to the adrenal cortex, which in turn prompts the body to regulate the hormones that are responsible for taking care of stress. An interesting herb that has some unique uses, such as overcoming jet lag and improving memory.
Other commonly used applications for Basil tea are skin infections, fevers, intestinal parasites, and diarrhea.
Being an anti-inflammatory, this herb can also be useful against arthritis.

From certified organic Australian suppliers.

    Pina colada

    I wanted something healthy and cold to drink outside of water. I make a pot of tea with a dessert spoonful of the tea , leave it all day under the tea cosy and decant it later before bed into a 1.7 litre bottle and pop it into the fridge . I have shared a glass with my son and his girlfriend and we all love it. Easy to make and gorgeous to drink.

    Hi Sheila, thanks for your great review - this ones universally popular with all ages across guys and girls. Make sure you try it iced too! I think it's much better iced actually and somehow helps to balance out the Hibiscus flavour a bit better.
    Good product

    Helps with sleep, dreams and dream retention.

    Hi David, thanks for your review - we've seen others report back with increased dream clarity too!
    Essiac Tea

    Great product, fast delivery and great price, highly recommend Tea Life!

    Hi Betty, Thank you - we do our best with shipping times and usually looking for ways to make things easier/faster.
    Midday bloom

    This tea has a very mellow flavour. Which is slightly sweet at the end. It's main flavour palate is dominated by the silver needle component. It does have a very subtle smokey aroma. It won't distract from any yummy meal it may be accompanied with.

    Hi Casey, thank you for your review! We might be getting some new flavours in soon, depending on how the samples go.
