Sad sad sipdown. I love this tea. It’s so relaxing and soothing for me.

Tulsi and fruit go so well together. I really like it with papaya and apples here. I also like it mixed with berry teas.

It steeps up murky and scary looking. I recommend a dark mug. It smells spicy and peppery and fruity.

Definitely a tea I need to get more of. Need. :)

This tea is just straight-up jasmine blossoms. The owner of the tea shop said that he often blends it with other teas, but hadn’t tried it alone. It makes a lovely, fragrant cup that has a light flavour. Perfect before bed.

Need chill calming tea. And cat cuddles. And that calming cat gif that floats around tumblr, geez.

That exam. All I can do is shake my head. I messed up some simple stuff and got some really complicated stuff. Fingers crossed!!

This was a good tea to bring with me. No caffeine, which kinda sucks as I’ve only had a couple sips of my caffeinated tea today, but delicious and relaxing. :)

I’m making another cup of this one when I get home.

My BFF came over for dinner before, err, swimming (yeah, we’ll call it swimming) tonight, and I made us this tea.

I’ve found it works best if you let it steep with a lid. If you don’t, the delicious licoricey basily spicy clovey taste of the tulsi (don’t worry, licorice haters, it’s not like licorice root!) disappears.

We both enjoyed a cup of this. I think I need more. Maybe even a tin! I haven’t found a tulsi tea without licorice and/or mint at a local shop yet…

Next time you come to town I’ll be sure to take you back to Georgie’s :)

I do believe, though, that the Tulsi blends are Tea Affaire and most of the others that Georgie’s stocks are Metropolitan Tea Company. Just fyi :)

OMGsrsly

I found the other teas on the Metropolitan site, but I didn’t know about Tea Affaire. Thanks!!

No problem! i just picked up 2 different tulsi blends when I took Heather out there, and both were Tea Affaire (though my two were boxes from the shelf below the stuff you got, so might be different, and I don’t have my tin of “stress relief” tulsi mix handy to look, but I know it was the same shelf as yours :) )

OMGsrsly

Yep yep, it’s Tea Affaire! I found it at the Banff Tea Company as well, but it’s $16 for 100g plus shipping. So I emailed Tea Affaire to find out if there’s a retailer in Vancouver.

OMGsrsly

Haha. Yes, I’d found the website. :) I added it to their steepster listing!

OMGsrsly

Or maybe I didn’t add them to Steepster. So confused.

Drinking this one cold, as I brewed it up last night before bed yet didn’t manage to drink much at all.

Idk what is up with me. Yesterday I slept 12 hours through, today I slept 6 hours very interrupted. I’ve been laying here, playing games on my phone and sipping tea for almost an hour now.

This tea is so good. I love the fruity flavours mixed in with the almost-minty flavour of the tulsi. I just need to remember to mix this one up well, as the fruit floats to the top and the tulsi pieces settle at the bottom. A good tea to fell asleep with AND wake up to. :)

Had this one on the ferry home last night. It essentially tastes like a tulsi and apple tea. About 1 tsp in 12 oz boiling ferry water, just left in the mug. Even this morning it tasted good cold.

Wow, I’m so tired. I think I used up all my energy organizing my cupboard and putting away samples. Now it’s time to put away the teas I bought, and all I want to do is nap! Oops. :)

Maybe it’s time for something a little more caffeinated.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
