242 Tasting Notes
Using up the last two teabags from this box. I enjoyed this blend because it introduced me to Tulsi itself. Now I can detect it when I come across it in other blends.
It seems to be a light, mellow, slightly minty herb with a lot of health benefits. While kind of uninteresting flavorwise by itself, I now happen to know that it is quite tasty when blended with other flavorings, such as lemon ginger and spearmint. I look forward to trying other blends with Tulsi in them, as well as reaping the health benefits that Organic India claims this herb brings to its consumers.
Yay, holy basil!
Oh, man, do I love this tea. It’s fruity, sweet, energizing, and it almost tastes healthy. Having (regrettably) never tried unflavored kombucha, I have no idea how strong its presence is in this blend, but I can say that the spearmint doesn’t take over, which is nice, nor does the green tea base turn bitter. The rest of it kind of tastes like plum and other fruityness. I think it’s amazing!
Picked up a box of this because I loved the Original Tulsi blend from this company so much. I think this one might be even better! The lemon ginger flavoring is actually very mild and plays very nicely with the gentleness of the tulsi. None of the flavors dominate- it’s perfectly balanced and warming without being spicy. Perfect cuppa for a blustery day like today.
I love this tea so so so so so much. It’s full of beautiful, warming spices, and it tastes like chocolate without being sweet, somehow. It’s delicious. It lingers on the tongue and warms the belly. The smoky taste characteristic of yerba mate is diminished, which is fine with me.
It has less caffeine per sachet than the Traditional Mate, but that doesn’t bother me any, because the taste is far better.
Ooooo-eeeee, as a former coffee-drinker, I can say with utmost certainty that this is the closest thing to it that the tea world has to offer. High-test stuff. The flavor is a very strong and robust nutty-astringent combo that hits you like a brick wall. Personally, I like my teas straight-up, but adding a splash of milk and/ or some honey definitely doesn’t hurt this one.
I treat this tea like I would my boss. With respect.
Ughhhhh freezing rain! Horrible.
I still maintain that this is the best wake-up tea in my collection. It’s so rich and warming. I’m getting chocolatey notes this morning, too, which complement the bergamot wonderfully.
Here’s to hoping this steaming mug of healthy glory helps chase away the cold!
My first foray into the world of pu-erh! This is lovely. It has an earthy quality and smell to it, but at the same time is very sweet and very fragrant. No milk or sugar needed! The rooibos is there, but takes a bit of a backseat to the cloves and cinnamon. Very nice! This tea is ideal for helping me lose my post-holiday weight. Also- it’s certified organic! A+ for Lifestyle Awareness teas.
