Just got around to trying this one, on one of the hottest days of the year so far. Not exactly fitting, but there you go. It’s actually a lot more complex than I was expecting. Dry, I could smell mostly mint. It’s pleasant, but nothing world changing. Brewed and slightly cooled, however, this really becomes an interesting tea. The peppermint is still very prominent, but the tulsi adds a really complementary earthy or maybe slightly woodsy note which works perfectly with the rooibos. I wouldn’t actually have known I was drinking rooibos at all if I hadn’t read the label. Its characteristic taste is almost completely absent, perhaps because the tulsi is the more potent of the two? I’ve never had tulsi before, as far as I’m aware, so its been an interesting experience from that perspective. I’d definitely be interested in trying more, because it’s really added something here. Today doesn’t exactly have the right atmospheric for this tea, but the background note here almost gives the impression of fog, or of a dark, misty forest. The chocolate adds beautifully to the overall effect, being deep, dark, and ever so slightly bitter. I’m going to keep some of this back for autumn/winter so I can drink it when it fits the season better. Great first impression, though. A really enjoyable, unique tea!
