This tea is quite refreshing and well balanced. I like fennel seed, and it is good for my pitta constitution. It also aids in digestion. Not only did this non-caffeinated tea calm me, but I felt very re-energized as well.

This is a very finely ground/cut herbal with pieces of fennel and orange peel in it.
The scent of the dry leaf is dried orange peel with the tulsi/Holy basil which is a unique scent. It smells mostly like minerals and dried regular basil.
This is a lovely Ayurvedic herbal. It has the flavors of the Orange peel, Holy Basil, a sweetness which tastes like honey and a zinginess or tartness like tamarind. I like this.
Tulsi has spiritual as well as medicinal significance in Ayurveda.
In terms of the Ayurvedic doshas, tulsi carries the bitter, pungent, and astringent tastes,,,but this herbal is not bitter or overbearing. Well-balanced flavors. Very delicious and truly calming.
Tulsi is predominantly Kapha-reducing, but it can also be used to pacify Vata and Pitta. However, it can have a mildly Pitta-aggravating effect in individuals who are severely overheated.
Since I am Pitta and I live in the desert,,,I am drinking this before it gets too hot lol. This is a great winter drink to warm and relax you. Tulsi is also used to treat colds, coughs, and flu so this is a great one for cold seasons. I feel it warming my chest and lungs, this would be wonderful when you are not feeling well.
Tulsi promotes purity and lightness in the body, cleansing the respiratory tract of toxins. (info from The Chopra Center & Yogi Cameron)
I am enjoying Tao of Tea ’s selection very much. They have more Ayurvedic tisanes as well.
