This was one of the more interesting teas (in a good way) I’ve ever had. Listed as a tisane, it smelled more like an aromatic herb (and the plant from which it comes belongs to the same family as basil and rosemary).It smelled really fragrant, like an herb garden. It wasn’t very sweet, but had a nicely rounded subtle sweetness to it, likely the result of whatever mints were added. I couldn’t taste any strong mint, but there did seem (to me) to be some subtle peppermint and spearmint. Very interesting and quite nice!
Cooling Mint Tulsi
Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) is also known as Holy Basil. It is part of the basil genus and is often used in various ayurvedic remedies. Tulsi is also naturally caffeine-free. It seems to have a number of health benefits, but what attracted us to it was its unique taste. It’s hard to describe; slightly spicy, sweet, floral and minty, all at the same time.
