drank Tropical Tulsi by Fusion Teas
2163 tasting notes

I decided to cold brew this one last night so it’s been steeping for about 18 hours in my Lupicia handy tea cooler (I have the 600 ml size). I used about 1 tsb of leaf and filtered water from the Brita.

I like the result of this! The tulsi provides quite a minty/clove note and the fruit gives it a tang, I can definitely see why Tommy describes this as bubblegum (Fruit Stripe Gum?)

A nice tisane for the afternoon, and I’m at home ready to take a nap – tulsi I hope you can do some stress busting stuff for me! See previous notes for more info…

Iced 8 min or more

Mmm, Fruit Stripe Gum…


I love that gum!

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
