Trying a cup of Jasmine green tulsi while goofing off on this holiday weekend. I love jasmine tea, and I was intrigued by the tulsi or holy basil.
The scent of the steeped tea is nice and relaxing; it isn’t flowery like jasmine, more earthy which I’m guessing is the tulsi. The taste is earthy too; I’d say it’s like green tea with almost a slight minty aftertaste. I think I may have steeped it too long – a mistake I make quite often with my green teas. I will definitely try it again at half the steep time to see if the jasmine comes out more when it isn’t overpowered by the tulsi.
