This is really nice. I love the way the slightly peppery, slightly minty tones of the tulsi marry with the lemony notes of the lemon myrtle. And I don’t usually notice much flavor from marigold petals but, I can taste a slight floral tone here. It is herbaceous without tasting too medicinal (maybe a tad medicinal, but not in an off-putting way) Everything is very pleasant and gentle. It’s very soothing. The more I sip it, the more I like it.
Marigold Lemon Tulsi Blend
Tulsi with hints of lemony flavor makes a great combination. We chose 100% organic Australian Lemon Myrtle for the blend because it had the perfect strength to balance the brew. Complemented with the fragrant sweetness of calendula flowers.
Known as Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum), Tulsi is a sacred plant from India used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Tulsi is considered an ‘elixir of life’ providing alchemy to one’s well being.
There are three types of tulsi varietals, each having a distinct flavor: the green leaf (Rama Tulsi), purple leaf (Krishna Tulsi) bears dark green-to-purple leaves and a third, considered the most flavorful and also hardest to grow – wild forest (Vana Tulsi).
Supporters of Small Organic Tulsi Farmers
We work only with small-scale Tulsi growers that need
assurance for their harvests. As such, we provide up-front guarantees to purchase their produce and help sell it through a market-education development approach. As we grow, we envision our ability to help more small-scale and marginal Organic farmers in this process. Most Tulsi is still grown conventionally and the transition to Organics is recent. We hope to be among the few Tulsi companies that are in the forefront of this movement.
