Recent Tasting Notes
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 :-)
