…I narrowly avoided ruining this one.
Another from Sips By, one I certainly would not have chosen on my own. Now, I didn’t read the ingredients list, I just made it the same way I make all my herbals. Turns out there’s stevia in this. That’s what they meant when they called it “sweet rose”. It seems obvious to me now.I happen to like stevia… but I sweeten with it, and added some to this. Something told me to be light handed with it, which I was. But it still came out super sweet. I’ll know to not add any next time.
Sweetness aside, I like this! It’s my first tulsi tea. I’ve always heard tulsi described as “holy basil”, so I was expecting this to be weird. But really, it’s almost like a lychee tea. I can taste what I think must be the tulsi. It’s one of those exotic, peppery, herbal scents that I recognize from health food stores, but could never place. This is all around pleasant and I bet would be lovely over ice. Which maybe I will do over the weekend.
Flavors: Lychee, Pepper, Rose, Tulsi
