Tisane of the early afternoon…
This afternoon’s PT appointment included lots of painful exercises by them intended to get my shoulder joint moving again. What I need to work on is keeping my anxiety levels down throughout this process. Tulsi to the rescue!

Decided to have a cup of this when I got home. It’s one of my favorites from Organic India. the ginger and tulsi combination is simple yet quite good. I’m not a huge fan of the way that tulsi tastes so I like the fact that the ginger sort of overwhelms it. I think this might be my last bag of this as I gave most of it to my boyfriend last week. I could probably try making my own blend with the tin of loose tulsi I have in the cupboard!

I’m so sorry your PT appointment was so painful… ugh. :( Tulsi to the rescue, indeed!
Can’t wait to hear your results if you make your own blend (I bet it’ll be great!).

TeaBrat

Oh, that really sucks. I also had PT yesterday, and again tomorrow. Here’s hoping it only gets easier and less painful!

Happy healing for all of us :)

Tea of the afternoon here. I could leave work early today but I’m expecting a tea package from UPS, kind of difficult to decide if I want to stay and wait for UPS or just go home!

This is one of my favorite tulsi blends, it so simple (just tulsi and ginger) but very tasty especially after the Thai yellow curry I had for lunch…

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Backlog. Tisane of the evening at my sweetie’s house, he really likes tulsi and so do I. The ginger is really good in this blend. Someday I will need to try this as a cold brew or an iced tea, it would be good to keep some in the fridge ready to drink.

Tulsi is the same as basil isn’t it? I loooooove basil in my tea

TeaBrat

It’s the same thing as holy basil which is from India…

Indigobloom

TeaBrat

Indigobloom

Tisane of the afternoon here. I have the lemon ginger tulsi and this is also good, just a mixture of ginger and tulsi. Tastes gingery, spicy and slightly minty/herby from the tulsi. This is a really good after lunch tisane, I’m enjoying it. It would also be great for evening time.

Was out at a concert last night, feeling a bit hoarse and draggy (is that a word). Soothing but supposedly energizing tulsi, with a spot of honey, seems to be in order.

Already contemplating what tea to have with lunch!

I’ve been thinking the same thing since I woke up. I think today is a Downton Abbey blend day for me. See you soon!

Janefan

Sounds good! See you later. :-)

I still quite like this. The weird basil-mint-licorice flavour that tulsi has is quite comforting.

Even better with honey, but I’m trying to avoid sugar (as I chow down on the last of the sugar cookies I made)… heh.

I’m also drinking it from my Fox Tail mug, which is pretty rad. I don’t use this mug often due to the unglazed porcelain exterior that stains like a white carpet at a red wine party.

1 bag for 10 oz.

I am steeping some of this too but I mixed it with rooibos. I like it :)

OMGsrsly

I’ve had it with different herbal teas, and it works better with some than others. :) I like it with appley fruit teas.

I found this one in a health food store today. Yay! Finally I’ve found tulsi tea!

It’s pretty good. I decided to add a bit of honey to it because I have a sore throat, and that improved the taste a bit. It’s not as sharp and citrusy as the tulsi I’ve had before, but that’s probably because a) it’s in bags, and b) it’s a mix of 3 different types of tulsi.

Anyways, it’s good, and if I can’t find a good loose tulsi, I’ll definitely get this one again.

I just recently tried a tulsi tea from this brand and thought it was pretty good for a bagged tea. Health food stores usually have some interesting herbals.

OMGsrsly

A lot of the stores I usually shop at are health food stores, as I live in “that area” of town! :) Every store tends to stock the same stuff, though (Numi, Traditional Medicinals, Yogi…).

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.
