When I bought the teabag version of Tulsi I knew I was going to keep an eye out for a loose version. It is going to be difficult to compare the two teas because when I made the tea bag one I also added some lavender flowers, and there is definitely nowhere close to as much tulsi in the bag as the loose leaf recommends, so it was considerably stronger.

I had braced myself the first time for an unpleasant medicinal taste since I had never had this herb and didn’t know it was tasty as well as helpful. It is quite good, though, and is a comforting drink that I think would pop to mind first if I wasn’t feeling well.

My back was hurting really badly last night, and though it didn’t stop (T3 vertebra problem) I definitely felt much more relaxed and peaceful after drinking this.

There is almost a minty or lemony high note. It tastes both lightly savory and sweet. I am reminded of some of the Republic of Tea “Get _______” line, so I suspect this may be in some of them.

Overall, tasty, helpful, and I am glad I bought it!
