This is really good. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from it before steeping it, I thought that the black tea would surely overwhelm the Tulsi, but, that is not the case. After infusing, the spiced tones of the Tulsi filled the kitchen – it smelled wonderful.

It tastes pretty darned wonderful too. The tulsi tastes warm yet crisp and lively. It gives the blend a herbaceous kind of flavor, with notes of mint, basil and a hint of pepper too. The black tea comes through nicely, not overpowering. Delivers a pleasing malty note to the cup, and gives a sense of fullness to the body and flavor.

A very pleasant breakfast cuppa (even if that first cuppa happens to be at 1:50 in the afternoon. Personally, I like it better when the day starts this late. I like sleeping through morning).

your description of tulsi is fascinating. I’ve never tried it! Must remedy this soon…

Here, the tulsi is different from any other that I’ve tried. I think the Assam just has a way of bringing out these interesting qualities of the tulsi.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
