If you could make just one drink a constant in your life, then the tulsi ginger tea should be at the top of your list of considerations. It is an ancient concoction that remains relevant even to this date. The tea, loaded with the goodness of the holy basil (tulsi) and the zing of ginger, can boost your body in several ways. This herbal beverage has spicy notes to it, which makes it all the more enjoyable during a rainy day or an early winter morning.

Let’s take a look at how to brew the perfect cup of tulsi ginger tea and the health benefits that it will grant.

How to Make Tulsi Ginger Tea

To make tulsi ginger tea, you will need:

  • A litre of water
  • 8 to 10 leaves of tulsi, washed
  • An inch and a half of ginger, peeled and grated
  • Two teaspoons of green tea leaves

Following is a step-by-step guide for making tulsi ginger tea:

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add the grated ginger to the water and let the water roil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat
  3. Crush and tear the tulsi leaves with your fingers and release them into the water.
  4. Sprinkle the green tea over the water and cover the pan with a lid.
  5. Let it steep for about 2 to 4 minutes. The steeping time depends on how strong you want your tea to be. 1-3 minutes yields a mild brew, while 5-6 minutes will offer a strong brew.
  6. Pass the tulsi ginger tea through a strainer and consume warm.

Do the above steps seem like a lot of effort for a single cup of piping hot tea? Simply skip these by purchasing tulsi ginger tea bags that have all the ingredients mixed in the right quantities and fixed proportion. So you can get the same taste in every cup. In this case, simply heat the water to 60-85 degrees, add the teabag and allow it to steep for about 2 to 3 minutes. Your infusion is ready!

Tips for Making Tulsi Ginger Tea

Since the tulsi-ginger tea has slightly spicy notes, you can consume it as is without any other adjustments. However, if you wish to give your tulsi ginger tea the “it” factor, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Add a drizzle of honey or a splash of lemon juice to accentuate the flavours and add additional health benefits to the tea.
  • Transfer the tulsi ginger tea in a jug and allow it to chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours if you want a cold, refreshing summer drink.
  • If you prefer a cold-brewed infusion, introduce 6-8 tulsi ginger tea bags in a litre of room temperature water. Place the jug of water in your refrigerator and let it rest for nearly 8 hours.
  • Extract maximum benefits from the tulsi ginger tea by drinking it early in the morning on an empty stomach.
  • You may create a cold brew infusion by letting tulsi-ginger green tea bags sit in water inside the refrigerator for about 8 to 12 hours.
  • While it is purely optional, you can add a dash of warm milk or cream to your hot tulsi ginger tea.

Health Benefits of Tulsi Ginger Tea

Tulsi and ginger are both medicinal plants. And while they offer a host of health benefits individually, their medley in a tulsi ginger tea provides the following advantages:

  • At a time when stress is potentially fatal, adaptogens like tulsi and ginger decrease the level of cortisol and make stress management easy.
  • This drink detoxifies the body and flushes out any toxins that may otherwise cause the development of conditions like kidney or gall bladder stones.
  • Its detoxification effect also improves skin and hair health through blood purification.
  • Tulsi and ginger are known for alleviating the symptoms of respiratory distress. Hot tulsi-ginger tea infusion can work as bronchodilators for conditions as severe as asthma and bronchitis.
  • Due to its high concentration of antioxidants, tulsi ginger tea reduces the inflammation caused by chronic diseases, such as arthritis. It also boosts the body’s natural immune response.
  • The beverage can treat gastrointestinal disorders ranging from nausea to indigestion to ulcers!
  • The antimicrobial properties of tulsi and ginger eliminate any germ or bacterial build-up in the mouth, thereby combating bad breath and improving oral hygiene.

While consuming tulsi ginger tea, do keep in mind that you must choose organic products as they are healthier and far more superior than their non-organic counterparts.
