All of Organic India Fairtrade certified teas include Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil or Queen of Herbs), a sacred herb in India. According to legend, no amount of gold could outweigh Krishna's power, but a single Tulsi leaf placed on the pan in loving devotion tilted that scale. In India today, Tulsi is still traditionally grown in an earthenware pot in every family home or garden, and the leaves are used to make a delicious and refreshing tea that possesses wonderful health benefits.

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. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicines for thousands of years to promote and maintain wellness. Many adaptogenic herbs have been referred to by herbalists as rejuvenative herbs, qi tonic herbs, rasayanas or restorative herbs. They help the body adapt to environmental, physical and emotional stressors, support normal functions, and restore balance.

Tate & Lyle was founded in London in 1878. For over almost 140 years, it has been creating some of the world’s best sugar. If you’ve ever been to London or other cities in England, you’ll notice the Tate name on notable institutions like the Tate Gallery or the Tate Modern museums. These Tates are one in the same!

For Tate & Lyle, sourcing cane sugar from Fairtrade farmers is not only good common sense, it makes good sustainable business sense. Since their initial commitment in 2008, Tate & Lyle Sugars has supported more farmers’ organizations to become Fairtrade certified. Today, they source Fairtrade sugar from over 20,000 small scale cane farmers in 14 different groups in 4 countries.

This is our biggest giveaway ever so take the quiz and make a pledge now!
