Green Tea with Tulasi

#GreenteawithTulasi : First I tried green tea with mint. I have many tulasi plants around my home. I thought why can't green tea can be prepared with tulasi leaves just like mint green tea.
#Tulasi is known as the Holy Basil in English. It is cultivated for its medicinal value and worshiped by Hindus in India. It has been used in Ayurveda for a very long time for its diverse medicinal properties.
Now to the method of making tea with tulasi.
