From the time you wake up, we so rely on some kind of hot or cold beverage to start or to end our day with. Being an Indian, it has always been in our rich agricultural treasury of herbs and spices. Dating back to ancient history, the use and benefits of herbs have been mentioned in the Vedas, in Ayurvedic and Unani medical practices as well as in folk culture. 

After mixing and trying out new ingredients, we came up with our own recipe to make herbal tea at home. Herbal tea is a decorative infusion of different herbs and spices in boiling water, it blends the aroma of freshly plucked herbs and the essence of spices with a sweet-sour flavor.

Would you like your tongue to linger with the authentic infusion taste, let’s get
into our delicious Homemade Herbal Tea recipe!

    1. No, they differ mainly in their flavour. Regular basil has a sweet, anise quality, whereas holy basil is found to be spicy and peppered with a lot of medicinal properties. As it goes well with other ingredients for herbal tea.
