I enjoy some of the teas from Organic India but this tulsi tea is not among my favourites. The holy basil tends to overpower any of the peach flavour. I can taste a tiny bit of it along with the hibiscus but the basil is just too strong and doesn’t seem to go with these flavours. Not a bad tea. I will finish off what I have but won’t buy this one again.
A thousand thanks to Fuzzy_Peachkin for the packets of this.
Cinnamon and Rose? What a facinating combination, I’ve never heard of anything like it.
First impression, upon tearing open the packet, is that this is not a subtle tea. Kablammo! Spicy cinnamon smell!
This is sweet, which surprised me, as I was expecting a spicy taste to accompany the sent of the tea.
The rose is barely detectable, but you do certainly get the cinnamon. The rose just adds a light note into the mix.
Not bad, and certainly not undrinkable, but not destined to become a favorite.
Thank you again Fuzzy_Peachkin!
There’s a decidedly minty undertone to this blend – I’ve never had tulsi before, but I’m assuming that’s it. I’m unabashedly not a fan of mint in my tea (or tisane, as the case may be), but this is actually okay – pleasantly refreshing, even.
I can taste the spices, but for the most part I wish they were a bit stronger. The ginger does come through nicely, though, and I think that’s what’s saving this tisane for me. It’s reminding me of ginger cookies, actually, which is never a bad thing! And the rooibos isn’t too strong – I’m not getting that tobacco flavor I dislike.
It’s not outstanding, but this is a decent caffeine-free option. I can see myself enjoying this in the evenings. I’m drinking it plain now, but I’ll certainly be trying it with a splash of soy or almond milk.
This one is a wonderful blind buy!I never had Tulsi before,then one day when searching for one more item to meet free-shipping standard,I came across this.As a herb lover(plus I always fancy excellent roses) I bought this , curious about what tulsi would taste like .To my surprise,the very sweet and lovely taste of rose here is better than expected, which tastes and smells like fine Rosewater .Tulsi is light ,crisp,straightfoward ， linear yet powerful in a delicate way and not at all ignorable. Truly tulsi is like a queen ,powerful and feminine , like the mother of the land ,with her gentleness and majesty.(Yep it reminds me of Aquaman’s wife，the beautiful、attractive and tough queen Mera~!)
Interestingly, the first time I had this one,I can’t barely bear it ,since tulsi is somehow earthy and fishy ，making me a little dizzy.I don’t know if you guys cook fish and spiral lions（/barnacle) with fresh mint ,but that particular kind of mint and tulsi truely share something in common,with its fishy for instance.People in some other provinces here use basil instead of mint ,so I think Tulsi as a branch of basil is solid to be at some point similiar to the particular kind of fresh mint? Once getting used to tulsi,you will like this energetic herb very much!(I fell in love instantly with this one the second time I tried it ,though the first time I just had a few sips and poured the whole cup away LOL
BTW,this one can be repeatedly brewed for a few times ,maintaining its good quality as the first cup……nice work!
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!
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…
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.
