the last tulsi tea bag from my thieving spree at yogaville. :)
(don’t worry it’s not really stealing, meals are included)
jasmine mint green tea? basically yes.
a little grassy. a little stemy. enjoyed.
relaxing. maybe too strongly spiced for me to drink it regularly, but it’s still a very nice blend.
i aim to try all the tulsi teas i can.
Tea of the mid-morning here, it’s a bit odd mixing tulsi with black tea and I don’t really drink this for the flavor of it, I just like the way tulsi makes me feel nice and relaxed. Imagine black tea mixed with a muddy, unwashed mint and you get the idea.
Anyway I am having a great Monday but I spent all day yesterday relaxing, doing meditation, yoga, walking and drinking tea. A great way to start off the week!
Made my own custom blend combining this, spearmint and lemon verbena then poured over ice. It’s pretty good this way!
i’ve been loving these tulsi samples i’ve been finishing up. i seriously need to buy some loose leaf tulsi. i have a feeling it’ll benefit me in many ways.
if anyone has a brand they like let me know! :)
now i will go to sleep super early so i can wake up at 5am and run a half marathon in the woods and rain with my sister. i’m totally looking forward to it. i have my pre-run and post-run teas already picked out. and we will go to the twisted branch tea house for lunch. xo
I bought this tea in India last month and I love it. Tulsi is really great for your health and anxiety without making you sleepy. I actually bought it in the decaf version too. I drink the decaf version more because I enjoy the relaxing qualities in the evening. The bag can only get a hearty one brew so that is why I am not giving it a 100%. I would buy it again if I came across it.
Whole foods had these in the sample basket awhile back. I’m a huge fan of pomegranate, but this tasted nothing like it. I’m definitely not a fan of this one.
I love this tea- the mango isn’t really hugely noticeable, but it takes the edge off the basil and I just love this tea. I’ve added honey, drank it straight, and used it as my carrier for marshmallow root extract. It’s a great all-day tea and is even good cold!
Too much Easter dinner at the in-laws. This will help my belly :)
Tea of the mid-morning here… not a personal favorite in terms of flavor but it’s a good way to get some tulsi in with your caffeine at the same time. :)
A very spicy and warming tisane, especially wonderful when you’ve come down with a cold. The combination of ginger and lemon and the naturally spicy holy basil really wake and warm you up.
I couldn’t imagine drinking it any other time but the winter though, which isn’t the tea’s problem, I guess; spicy teas are just more suitable for colder days. :)
Oh, and be wary of over-steeping: the ginger can get overwhelming to the point where I’d consider it undrinkable.
I was hoping to taste the black tea more …. it really just tastes like tulsi to me (tulsi = holy basil). Not what I expected…. sweeter more herbal.
I used to love this tea but oddly enough it is making my stomach queasy the last few times I have had it – not sure what that’s all about. :(
Will keep my rating where it is for now…
Backlog – we had this tea last night before bed and I enjoyed it much more than I remember so I decided to bump up the score a bit. I recommend a touch of sweetener to make this a bit more palatable.

I’m in love with this tea. I purchased it on a whim from Door to Door Organics, where I get my local produce. The smell out of the bag is incredible. Roses. Steep it for basically as long as you want – it’s very forgiving and non bitter. This herbal tea has an interesting, complex taste that I’m assuming is the basil. I very much prefer the stevia leaf to the anise (bleh!) that is found in so many of today’s herbal teas. It’s sweet, but from someone who doesn’t put any sugar in her tea, it’s not offensive. I do wish the rose flavor was a little more robust. Sometimes the other flavors overwhelm it. I will try steeping for less time and see if that gives me the result I’m looking for. Try it! It’s awesome.
Love the licorice flavour….sweet and spicy.
This is my first time trying tulsi of any kind. I kept reading the paeans GMathis wrote on its benefits, but I never thought to pick it up. Today, my daughter’s orthodontist appointment took me very close to our health food store. I used my few minutes to pick up a box of tulsi and some loose lavender flowers.
Husband and I each had a cup of this. I am so sleepy because I didn’t sleep but four hours last night and it has been a very stressful couple of days. I don’t know yet if this is reducing stress, but I can comment on the taste,
I don’t do a lot of herbals, and I do not like rooibos. Tis, however, is very nice and drinkable, even tasty. I made the mistake (or not) of making a cup of lavender tea at the same time and had just brushed my teeth, but the aroma of the two cups and the taste reminded of Yogi’s Bedtime tea, sans the super sweet licorice root. I don’t know if it was the tulsi or the lavender bringing it to mind, though.
I can say that if this is really good for me and also truly helps alleviate stress, it will be a pleasure to drink it, rather than an effort. This is tasty, and I hope to find sme loose leaf tulsi soon. I was surprised that there was none in the bulk bins.
Thank you, GMathis, for the recommendation of tulsi and buying lavender from the bulk bins! It is quite a savings over how I bought it before.

soft flavor, floral, may be good with milk
Tea of the afternoon here… it’s been a while since I have had any tulsi.
Nice to perk me up on this afternoon!
