Over the past few years, I have learned so much about eating healthy, local and organic and we feel so much better! I am always on the lookout for USDA organic products that I can trust to nourish myself and my family. Recently, as a member of Moms Meet (greenmomsmeet.com), I received samples to try out from ORGANIC INDIA.
As a tea lover, I was very excited to see the USDA logo on some delicious sounding teas! ORGANIC INDIA makes their trademark product, Tulsi (Holy Basil) tea in over 20 flavors, and I tried out:
Tulsi (Holy Basil) Original
Tulsi (Holy Basil) Green
Tulsi (Holy Basil) Moringa
Tulsi (Holy Basil) Cinnamon Rose
I later bought the Tulsi (Holy Basil) Lemon Ginger
My favorite may be the original Tulsi. I started with that one and just love it. The flavor is light and delicate, but seems to have a more robust flavor to me than a green tea, for example. I did not feel I needed to add lemon or honey to enjoy it, and it was not too strong or dense a tea flavor either. I was happy that I did not have to talk my family into trying our Organic India items. On the contrary, I had to share more than I wanted to! MY husband loved the Tulsi (Holy Basil) Moringa, and pretty much used the whole box. My one daughter enjoyed the Tulsi (Holy Basil) Cinnamon Rose, and I was thrilled when she would choose that over something like hot chocolate. Seriously.
When I ran out of all my teas, I got the Tulsi (Holy Basil) Lemon Ginger, and I like that as well. It has a definite ginger bit of spiciness to it. My least favorite would be the Tulsi (Holy Basil) Green, that just did not taste enough for me. The teas are organic, caffeine free and just as much a herbal supplement as a cup of tea. The Holy Basil is noted for its stress relieving properties. Organic India website mentions that “modern research has classified Tulsi as an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens have been shown to support the body’s natural immune system while relieving the body’s negative reaction to stress.
Support for the immune system
Increased stamina and endurance
Relief and protection from everyday stress

Other tea flavors add additional properties, but after drinking the Tulsi teas for over a month, I agree they are stress relieving and I really look forward to my cup of tea.
I also realized that Organic India offers all kinds of organically grown herbal supplements. I began to try out several supplements that came in capsule form as well as a neat product, Moringa Leaf Powder.
As we enjoy smoothies very often, the Moringa Leaf Powder was easy to incorporate into our diet. I simply added a 1/2 teaspoon whenever I made a smoothie. I also would sprinkle it into stews and soups, occassionally pasta sauce. I think it gave my family some benefit. Research supports that it definitely can. I can say that my kids stayed healthy during a nasty round of colds and flu going around!
Here are some details on Moringa:
- Moringa is considered one of the most complete, nutrient-dense plants on Earth, containing over 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, and abundant minerals.
- Moringa leaves have been eaten for thousands of years as a superfood nutritional supplement, and are often used to combat malnutrition in impoverished countries.
- Daily use of Moringa as a dietary supplement can help restore nutritional imbalances.
- This concentrated superfood is both alkalizing and energizing, and is abundant in vitamins, minerals and complex amino acids.
- ORGANIC INDIA Moringa is USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Kosher and Halal certified, gluten-free, and vegan.
- One 8 oz. canister of Moringa Leaf Powder retails for $22.99, and 90 capsules of Moringa retails for $19.99.
How will you enjoy your daily dose of Moringa? You can sprinkle it in soups, smoothies, and over salads, or combine it with almost anything to create a power-packed punch of nutrition. Moringa can be mixed in with mac-and-cheese or other children’s foods to add a serving of the green superfood to kids’ diets as well.
The herbal supplements I tried include:
Moringa (in capsule form) -help to restore your imbalances, add concentrated superfood nutrition to your diet and help you to consume the recommended 6-10 servings of vegetables per day.
Joy! -uplifts mood, boosts energy and vitality, and reduces emotional tension and stress
Turmeric Formula -supports important blood and liver functions, healthy joints and overall well-being, which is ultimately reflected in a radiant, supple skin.
My husband has been using the Moringa and says he feels better when he takes it. I take the Joy! and Turmeric and I feel that they have helped keep me reasonably healthy during a hard winter. I love knowing that the supplements are USDA certified, that makes me more confident in their ability to work.

So far, I am very impressed with these products. The teas and supplements we tried are tasty and I feel they are of good quality. I like that the Organic India USA website offers ALL kinds of detailed information on their products, even videos explaining the health benefits of the various supplements.
