drank Apple Pear Tulsi by Fusion Teas
1196 tasting notes

This is my first time having tulsi, so I looked it up on Wikipedia and was pleased by this sentence: Recent studies suggest tulsi may be a COX-2 inhibitor, like many modern painkillers, due to its high concentration of eugenol.

A painkiller is just what I need right now after trying to find out how I could get in-state tuition despite living in Georgia for nearly 3 years now. You’re supposed to make a “self-sufficient” amount of money in order to get non-ridiculous tuition rates. Not sure how you might do that with no college degree, so congratulations on your continued failures, Georgia.

So at this point I’m probably not graduating until I’m 30. I should get three degrees at this point it feels like.

So, lots of pain.

In the bag, this tea smelled like apple pie. Steeped, it smells like lollipops that have been sitting around some cloves.

I actually really like it a lot. The herbal taste of the tulsi is a nice aftertaste from the sweet, fruity flavor. I can taste both the apple and the pear, but it is still somewhat reminiscent of apple cider. Not a bad thing, though.

Is tulsi anything like rooibos or honeybush?

It kind of reminds me of rooibos, but not too much. It’s more like minty/spicy than woody tasting.

I get clove from the tulsi I tried the other night. Me likes! (was vanilla tulsi)

Tulsi is holy basil!! So I learned from my office-mate, whose research project is all about it.

I vote for kicking your Georgia’s staff in charge of funding college students. Just walk right up to them and kick them in the knee. It will make you feel better at least. ;)
