739 Tasting Notes
my DavidsTea delivery arrived!! i am so thrilled to suddenly have all this delicious variety! i suspect i will use it all up faster than i thought. (i am steeping each brew twice when i can.)
this tea wasn’t exactly what i expected, but it has already grown on me. the weather turned cold and rainy here for the past few days, and this was the perfect tea to start my evening off with. i never put anything in my tea, but soon i will try this one with a little almond milk and honey.
i stole this tea bag from yogaville! bwahahaha
i took a tea bag of each type of tea with me when i left yogaville for my ever astute tea reviews. i drank this tea the first time i visited yogaville and then again the second time. i plan to go back soon. after i pay off my last vacation.
i’d like to do a week long silent retreat there. there IS a 50/50 chance it would give me a nervous break down, but that’s a chance i’m willing to take in order to find serenity.
ya get me?!
the tulsi teas are all nice and good teas and are a pleasure to drink. (with the exception of one. don’t drink the ‘tummy’ one cuz that one almost made me barf. no lie.)
i had this tea at a local restaurant called Cous Cous. it was loose leaf tea served in a small glass teapot with an internal basket. licorice root, orange peel, turmeric and ginger. an Ayurvedic tea with traditional therapeutic health properties. it was a great warm tonic to enjoy during lunch and was a warm earthy contrast to my summery cranberry & mixed green salad.
with the added notes of lemongrass it wasn’t too spicy or too sweet. a great balance and i would gladly have this tea again.
had this cup with a vegan burrito at harrison street cafe.
pretty delicious! sweet and fruity and tart. a little too tart for me personally, but i also let it brew too long while i was eating. i bet the second brew of the bag would have been exactly right for my tastes. perfect summer tea. i will be drinking much more of it in the months to come i’m sure.
Meghann M below says that this tea “smells of tart citrus, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice” and she is exactly right.
one of my go to favorites! i buy most tea loose these days, but this one i still purchase even though it comes in teabags. i don’t generally like cinnamon or spicy type teas, but this one has a great balance of sweetness and kick. sweet orange and very light warm cinnamon. though i try to keep lots of variety in my cabinet, i will regularly drink at least one cup of this tea 5 days a week.
as opposed to a digestion tea, i prefer to think of the lost in “get lost” as this is a tea for a wanderer’s heart or an adventurer’s spirit.
