    I started taking this after seeing it in Dr Oz and while I haven't lost any weight I can say that it helps me overall! I've been taking this daily for a year now and I believe it has helped my immune system my mood and over all well being. Maybe just luck but since I've started taking it I haven't been sick with anything cold related.

    Great tea and many blends to choose from. This herb is energizing while calming and is a great help to me as a woman, with aging and changing hormones,as well as my osteo arthritis and work stress levels.

    I would like to ask Adrianna where she gets her $2.00 holy basil leaves. I don't seem to be able to find it in my area. I live in Los Angeles and I take holy basil capsules which was extremely effective for my bronchitis, but I would prefer to use natural leaves. Thanks.

The brand I take is New Chapter for it's quality and preparation. I have not yet tried to drink Holy Basil tea.
