This is really good. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from it before steeping it, I thought that the black tea would surely overwhelm the Tulsi, but, that is not the case. After infusing, the spiced tones of the Tulsi filled the kitchen – it smelled wonderful.
It tastes pretty darned wonderful too. The tulsi tastes warm yet crisp and lively. It gives the blend a herbaceous kind of flavor, with notes of mint, basil and a hint of pepper too. The black tea comes through nicely, not overpowering. Delivers a pleasing malty note to the cup, and gives a sense of fullness to the body and flavor.
A very pleasant breakfast cuppa (even if that first cuppa happens to be at 1:50 in the afternoon. Personally, I like it better when the day starts this late. I like sleeping through morning).
