This a tasty and lovely herbal blend from Verdant tea. If you read my tealog, you may know I am a fan of tulsi but some blends are better than others, of course. The peppermint and the spearmint are a nice compliment to the tulsi here, which I am having after lunch. The licorice is adding a touch of sweetness, the ginger is not very strong here which is too bad, I could havve used a bit mre but I’m a ginger freak. Overall, I think this is an excellent blend and really relaxing. Too bad I’m not at a spa. :)

I like this too. I can understand the pull back on ginger, licorice and tulsi…almost an introduction that says…“if you like this try some more”…and sometimes, well a toss of candied ginger in my cup is nice.

I was thinking this would be nice with some green tea also…
