To Make a Cup of Tulsi Masala Chai Loose Leaf Tea
You will need a “tea basket” that inserts into a cup or an individual empty tea bag. Place a tablespoon of Tulsi tea leaves into the tea basket or tea bag, and place in your favourite mug. Bring clean fresh water to boil, and pour boiling water over Tulsi tea leaves in your cup. Cover and let steep for 5 – 10 minutes. Remove tea basket or bag and enjoy. Use more tea leaves for a stronger flavour and less for a milder flavour, as per your taste. Please note: The stronger the tea, the more potent the benefits.
To Make a Pot of Tea
Use one full tablespoon of tea per cup. Place the tea leaves in your teapot and pour fresh boiling water over the tea leaves. Let the tea steep for 5 – 10 minutes, and pour through a small strainer directly into the cup. Use more tea for a stronger flavour and less for a milder flavour, as per your taste.
