Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tisane to try.

The aroma prior to brewing was very light and herbaceous, with hints of mint. After infusion, I noticed a distinct medicinal quality to the aroma as I poured the tisane, in fact, the smell reminds me of vapor rub. Not exactly what I would consider a delicious beverage – vapor rub – but, once I managed to get over the scent of it and actually take a sip, I found myself taking another and another… at first, I think it was mostly curiosity, and then as I continued to sip, I found myself enjoying it.

This isn’t my first Tulsi, but most of the other Tulsi I’ve had have either been a mix of the three types of the Holy Basil, or it has been Rama or Krishna Tulsi, I’ve had very little experience with Vana Tulsi in a pure version of it like this. It has a very powerful aroma, almost off-putting at first, but, now, it is really quite good. Spicy, with notes of of citrus, and lovely hints of mint.

I really like this more than I thought I would when I first smelled the brewed tisane.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
