In preparation for next week’s tea of the week, I thought we would release some of this delicious organic Tulsi Rama with nothing added. This is a really unique tisane that gave me quite a challenge when it came to figuring out what to blend it with. The unadulterated tisane has a kind of licorice/anise flavor with citrusy notes and a touch of what tastes like black pepper right on the tip of your tongue. It is actually quite delicious hot or iced, and something about it is very soothing.
According to some sources, Tulsi has adaptogens, which reportedly help the body cope with stress. There is quite a lot of information out there about this tisane, which has been used in ayurvedic medicine and holds a place of importance in Hinduism.
