This is the favorite of all the tulsi teas I’ve tried from this company, it is very gingery with a touch of lemon, that seems to enhance the flavor of the tulsi instead of fighting with it. Nice for a relaxing afternoon…
I enjoyed this tea quite a bit. The taste is mostly ginger with a touch of lemon, but there was no heat from the ginger to push this to the “medicinal” side of herbal teas. That said, I’m tempted to buy a box of this to keep on hand in case of colds/sickness. With a touch of honey I think this would be a comforting cup for an itchy throat or other general yuckiness.
A very spicy and warming tisane, especially wonderful when you’ve come down with a cold. The combination of ginger and lemon and the naturally spicy holy basil really wake and warm you up.
I couldn’t imagine drinking it any other time but the winter though, which isn’t the tea’s problem, I guess; spicy teas are just more suitable for colder days. :)
Oh, and be wary of over-steeping: the ginger can get overwhelming to the point where I’d consider it undrinkable.
