Organic India’s Tulsi Teas and Psyllium Husk with a Smoothie Recipe: a Review

OrganicIndia-logoI received a nice big box of Organic India Tulsi  teas through the Moms Meet Program in my mailbox the other day. This was perfect timing. After my haul from the Ultimate Bundles Healthy Living sale earlier this month I've really been digging EVEN deeper to eat healthier and exercise more.

Drinking more, good for you, teas has been on my to-do list and this package from Organic India is helping me do that.

Each box of the Organic India Teas contains the herb Tulsi which is considered India's “Queen of Herbs”.

Tulsi is…

  • abundant in antioxidants
  • helps to relieve stress, increase energy, and boost your immune system
  • Organic India's Tulsi is USDA Certified Organic and non-GMO
  • There are three varieties of Tulsi and combining them gives you an array of health benefits.

Diving into Our Tea

Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea? – how did it exist? Am glad I was not born before tea. ~Sydney Smith

My husband was really excited to get “our” bib box of various teas. When the cooler weather hits we all seem to be drinking it more and having it full of health benefits is just a plus.

I received several different varieties to try including…

  • Original
  • Peppermint
  • Sweet Rose
  • Pomegranate Green Tea
  • Red Mango
  • Honey Chamomile
  • Raspberry Peach

Since I've been trying to drink more Green Tea I was originally going to dive into the Pomegranate Green Tea but instead opted to start out with Sweet Rose.

Right off I noticed the Rose scent. I'm a baker and have a bottle of Rose water for baking. It says on the box that was one of the ingredients and I smelled it right off. The tea also includes rose petals. It was relaxing and soothing to drink at the end of the day.

My husband went right for the Raspberry Peach. He loves fruity teas and means to try them all.

After our first tastings we both seem to be gravitating towards Peppermint. A family favorite.

So I guess you want to know if we feel healthier, notice a difference, etc. Well since we're doing several things for our health (more veggies in meals, less sugar, exercise, more sleep) we do feel better all around. I personally have noticed a difference in quality between  teas and the other boxed brand I usually purchase. Enough to make me look for the Organic India brand in my grocery store.

I imagine the way we're enjoying these teas we're going to be done with these boxes pretty quickly. We all, daughter included, drink about 3 cups of tea a day. Luckily you can save 20% on Organic India products by using the code kiwi20. But this code is for one-time use only.  Start shopping now.

My favorite grocery store also carries the Tulsi brand so I have to check out what flavors they have. One box of Tulsi Tea generally retails for about $5.99.

I also received a can of Organic India Psyllium Husks in my box along with a smoothie jar and straw. I love smoothies for breakfast so I was game to try this out. I read about Psyllium husks a very long time ago but it's been so long I had forgotten what I had learned and I never even tried it out to boot.

Well it looks like Psyllium Husks are good source of fiber which is great for heart health!

Some days I can stomach eating breakfast but I know I need to get something in. At those times I make a green smoothie to help me kickstart my day. It's nice to know I can add a little healthy fiber to my morning smoothies too. (I use a Nutri Bullet for my smoothies). And this is my recipe.

Morning Smoothie with Psyllium Husks

  • greens of some sort (I use spinach, lettuce, or cabbage, rotating between)
  • half a cumber
  • 1/2 frozen apple (I keep these in the freezer)
  • some pieces of fresh mango or plum
  • my liquid vitamins
  • 1 tablespoon flax
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks
  • to the fill line with coconut water

I put everything in the bullet and mix for 1 minute. Yumm! Some days I add a banana but I have to be in the mood.
