I recently had the chance to try out three of the products from Organic India.
The three products I tried are Tulsi Original Flavor Tea, Turmeric Formula and Chyawanprash. ORGANIC INDIA was formed as a labor of love. They began working cooperatively with farms in northern India to grow Tulsi ~ Holy Basil which was used to create their flagship product, the Original Tulsi Tea (the one I tried). Encouraged by the success of this project, they contracted with more farmers and expanded their program to include other Indian herb, food and spice crops. The guiding principal of their company is to honor and protect the Earth by utilizing sustainable, organic and biodynamic agricultural practices and to provide a sustainable living for the farmers and tribes people they work with in India.
The Original Tulsi Tea has many advantages including stress relieving and energizing properties. I liked that it comes in a box of 18 tea bags and that it’s caffeine and gluten free. I couldn’t wait to try it. I poured boiling hot water over the tea bag just like the directions say and let it steep for 5 minutes. When I looked at the tea after 5 minutes it was really dark as you can see in the picture above. I was a little worried that it was going to be too strong. However when I tasted it, I found it to have a smooth tea like flavor. It was not strong or overpowering at all. I liked the aroma as well as the taste. It has a citrusy ( if that’s even a word) sent and taste It definitely has become part or my afternoon routine.
Throughout India, Tulsi is considered “The Queen of Herbs” and is revered as a sacred plant infused with healing power. Traditionally grown in an earthen pot in every family home or garden, Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil) makes a delicious and refreshing tea that possesses wonderful health benefits that support the body’s natural immune system while relieving the body’s negative reaction to stress.Tulsi’s remarkable life-enhancing qualities, noted repeatedly in ancient Indian scriptures dating back 5,000 years, are now here for you to fully enjoy.

I had never heard of Chyawanprash prior to receiving this product. This product is a like a very thick jam. It does have to be worked out of the jar, but it is not really meant to be spooned out in big lumps onto your toast anyway. I really liked that it’s great tasting. The mixture of botanicals and fruits and all manner of roots and spices is just so good, it’s definitely hard to limit yourself to the recommended one or two teaspoons a day. I like that there are so many different ways to using it. Chyawanprash can be spread on wholesome breads or crackers, added to smoothies, or as a healthy snack (my favorite way) just eaten right out of the jar with a spoon! I read that traditionally in India, it’s stirred into a warm glass of milk. It is naturally sweet, using mineral rich gur (organic cane juice that has been slowly reduced to a thick syrup, somewhat like maple syrup) and organic honey, and has that authentic taste of the spices of India. This product goes great with crackers and a cup of Tulsi Original tea.
Chyawanprash is helpful to everyone, regardless of age, by creating harmony in the body and improving metabolism. Well-known as an immunity booster, Chyawanprash also excels as an antioxidant, rejuvenator, and source of energy. With Amla (Eblica officianalis) as a main ingredient, Chyawanprash also serves as a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants.
Sesame oil is a fantastic superfood. Learn more about why sesame oil has been used in Chyawanprash for thousands of years.
I had only heard of Turmeric as a cooking spice prior to receiving this product and I had no idea that it was also available in a capsule form as a supplement. There are many benefits when it comes to Turmeric however the one that caught my attention first is that it helps with inflamation. I have rheumatoid arthritis in several joints and have suffered from the pain for quite some time. I tend to spend my days in pain because I don’t like taking too many pain killers. I have used this product twice daily and it definitely helps with my joint pain. I took it for a week straight and then stopped, on the second day of not taking it I notice that my joints hurt more. I will now always use turmeric for the inflammation.
Organic India’s Turmeric formula is made with the purest, 100% organic turmeric, a natural spice that contains curcuminoids, which are phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant properties that fight the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. Fortified with curcuminoid extract and organic ginger, our organic Turmeric supports important blood and liver functions, healthy joints and overall well-being, which is ultimately reflected in a radiant, supple skin.
