BREAKFAST BLACK TULSI

Certified Organic Tulsi Tea Blend

Tin / Bio-bag: 60g / 50 cups • Sample: 5 to 7 cups

Tulsi is one of India’s most sacred herbs, an aromatic shrub recognized for its spiritually uplifting and healing properties. This tulsi blend is a great morning tea, combining the strong and malty taste of Asamese black tea with the spicy-minty aroma and flavor of high-quality tulsi.

Story

Tulsi or holy basil is an important symbol in the Hindu religious tradition and is worshiped in the morning and evening by Hindus at large. The holy basil is also a herbal remedy for a lot of common ailments. Holy Basil has been called the “Incomparable One”, the “Queen of Herbs” and “The Elixir of Life.”

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).

your description of tulsi is fascinating. I’ve never tried it! Must remedy this soon…

Here, the tulsi is different from any other that I’ve tried. I think the Assam just has a way of bringing out these interesting qualities of the tulsi.

GREAT Tulsi Blend!

The Tulsi is wonderful but I LOVE that it’s paired with the black tea! It’s almost the pioneers of both worlds coming together to collaborate – almost like Run DMC & Aerosmith to come up with an awesome blend of flavors for a hit than will stand the test of time!

If you like Tulsi and you like black tea – this is darned nifty!

The tulsi is like sweet basil herb and mint tied into one with the black tea for a nice TEA base! REALLY like this!

Brilliant! I have been waiting for someone to do this and Shanti did! THANK YOU!
