Comforting and refreshing at the same time, this Tulsi Tea, with its unmistakable herbal accents is a wonderful cure for sore throat.

While the anti-viral and soothing properties of tulsi are well-known, what makes this remedy all the more effective is the addition of lemon juice, which helps cut through the mucus, increases salivation to lubricate the throat, and improves your immunity with its anti-oxidant powers.

Of course, the blend of herbal and lemony flavours is also a hit with the palate!

A really quick and best thing for throat pain and cough. If you like tulsi, you can also avoid adding the lemon juice and just have the tulsi tea.

I have this lovely tea drink often at night before sleeping as it soothes my throat. The lime and tulsi do the magic.
