Recent Tasting Notes
Apparently I got this tea before. And not that distant past. Just a year back. Aroma is sitll banana like, but brewed and steeped tea is very different. I notice honey as well herbs, mainly chamomile.
In taste it is pretty medicore. Not terribly bad, but sweet and herbal; without much else to notice. No yuck notes, but not something I would drink on daily basis.
And another exam done. Accounting. Pretty meh honestly, but it is done, so it counts!
Flavors: Herbs, Honey, Sweet
Tea bag (well, I am a collector, so I bought a pack of different ones).
I took it from the foil wrapping which is around and strong aroma hit me. Banana. Not chamomile, or honey but banana. Then some chamomile notes started to appear with faint honey. I guess I won´t like it.In water it gets stronger camomile aroma, bit spicy. Honey is not there at all. It smells bit like mulled wine.
Colour is not so clear and golden.
It smeels quite reasonable now. Quite herbal – but yeah, it is herbal blend.
Taste, flavors, et cetera: Actually, it is not so bad! Bit spicy, bit of bananas (I really wonder), chamomile flavour is weak. Not much honey. Not my cup of tea I assume, but I understand why somebody can like it. But for me, it is just a little above average.
By the way, there are two entries of this tea, so it should be merged up.
Flavors: banana, Herbs, Spicy, Tulsi
Did not like at all. The Holy Basil herb was way too much for me. I have never had it so I can’t compare to others but for me this way overpowered the rest of the flavor. I didn’t even finish the tea any time I tried it. Tried it a couple of different times just to make sure it wasn’t my home water versus office water. I didn’t notice anything but the holy basil herb, the other flavors just disappeared for me.
I haven’t had this in months and I forgot how much I like it. The main body of the tea is chamomile with an added sweetness from the honey. The tulsi adds a really nice base for this tisane and is a great balance for the sweetness of the chamomile and honey. I have to admit that I’m a little sentimental towards it too because my good friend Lucky brought it to me all the way from India :-)
I almost added this to the swap for Cameron B so she could try tulsi, but I know how she feels about florals ;-)
My dear friend Lucky just got back from visiting his family in India for 3 weeks and he brought me teas!!!! What a sweetheart. He just dropped them by tonight and this was the only caffeine free option, so I had to try it immediately. This is only my second tulsi and I must say that I am really enjoying the tulsi-chamomile combination! It tones down the green bean-ness of the tulsi. The chamomile is just lovely too and there’s a subtle sweetness from the honey flavor that makes this a really well rounded cup. I actually think I’m going to make myself a second cup right now :-)
