drank Holy Basil by Bija
293 tasting notes

This is my first review of an herbal tea since I reviewed Tension Tamer by Celestial Seasons when I first became a Steepsterite. I was in my local organic-health food store buying my usual wares including Tension Tamer when I noticed this Holy Basil nearby. I have read many reviews about this and I was curious to say the least. I doused the tea bag with boiling water and steeped it for 4 minutes. The flavor is so natural and inviting. I cannot comment yet on the effects of this brew because quite honestly I am also drinking the Star of Bulang that I reviewed earlier and I have some of the Verdant Autumn TKY floating around somewhere. One thing I can state now is that this brew has me very relaxed….

if you decide you like tulsi “holy basil”, you should know there are 2 varietals that I’m aware of : green and purple. I generally like the purple best as it has more exotic undertones of clove, cinnamon, and the basil-like flavor is secondary. It has a tingling aftertaste and considering you pay attention to energetics…I will be curious to hear your take

I prefer the purple, too!

David…if you decide you like it and want a sample of the loose leaf let me know
