This is not my favorite tulsi blend due to the stevia, but with roses and chamomile added to the mix it does seem quite relaxing somehow… and I was just reading tulsi is supposedly an anti-inflammatory so maybe it will be good for my plantar fasciitis – if only I could get myself to drink it every day!

Still struggling with Pf? That’s no fun.

I am curious-Is Tulsi (Holy Basil) similar in any way to Sweet Basil that is used in Italian cooking?

@Scott – yeah the P.F. is the bane of my existence. It seems to come and go but isn’t ever gone for nearly long enough in my opinion.

I’m not sure how much Tulsi has in common with Sweet basil To me they taste very different, but I assume they must be in the same family of plants?

Amy- Sorry about the PF-I had it once for a week or so, but fortunately never had a recurrence.

You would think they’d be in the same family of plants, but not necessarily. I should look it up.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

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
